Why should kids have all the fun?

The distinguishing quality of our books for adults is the joy with which they have been created and which they bring. Whether you’re sharing them around or keeping them for yourself, your Hinkler favourites are simply too good to experience just once. From tarot cards and origami to yoga kits and parenting guides, you’ll be reaching for your much-loved item time and again.

Health, fitness & lifestyle inspiration that won’t break the bank

Forget the dietitians, protein bars and club memberships. Getting fit and healthy doesn’t have to be costly or difficult. How many times do we join a club or sign up to a food service only to quickly become unmotivated or unable to continue due to our other commitments? Hinkler’s healthy eating guides and cookbooks will see you cooking up a (healthy) storm in no time. And our comprehensive workout guides, fitness equipment and instructional DVDs easily make every living room a gym, which allows you to incorporate healthy and active choices into your daily life.

What about exercise for the brain?

Do you lose your keys, forget names or miss appointments a little too often? If so, our range of puzzles, crosswords, jigsaws and Sudoku books for adults are here to train, satisfy and entertain your brain – and hopefully, lessen those little frustrations and limitations in life.

(Psst! If those names and appointments continue to evade you, our stylish notebooks, calendars and diaries may be the answer!)

Exercising your left brain is all well and good if you love order, sequence and logic. But what about your right brain – the source of your creativity, ideas and intuition? Our art therapy, zen colouring books and intricate adult dot-to-dot books will give you a much-needed escape from the stresses of busy life whilst still keeping you mindfully engaged in the moment.

Parenting made easier

If you have a little one at home, Hinkler Books is here to save the day. Whether it’s teaching manners, introducing toilet training or getting that bedtime routine down pat, you’ll wonder how other parents survive without us.

And if you’re looking for a special gift for an expectant mum, our precious baby record books are the perfect way to make milestones and memories last a lifetime.
