Brands

Characters and brands we all know and love.

Imagine if your kids’ favourite characters could come to life and entertain them without a screen in sight! Well, Hinkler’s licensed children’s books and creativity sets will keep kids’ eyes sparkling and their curious minds active and engaged. We even create and distribute our own specialised brands, with something for everyone in the family – from toddlers and teens to adults and seniors. When you see the Hinkler logo, you can be assured of each brand’s quality.

Are you ready to put on your adventure cape and let your imagination fly? Then open a Hinkler book or kit – and enter a breathtaking world of wonder with your little one by your side. When you’re joined by characters your kids know and love, the adventure becomes instantly more exciting and memorable!

So many new and stimulating delights await – with characters old and new. From classic Thomas & Friends adventures and activities to stars from the latest movie releases, we incorporate much-loved friends from TV and film into activities that will have your young readers returning to these books time and again.

And because our range is always so affordable, you won’t mind when your little one outgrows her Disney princesses obsession and moves on to something more grown-up. (Kaleidoscope Neon Colouring? We’re looking at you.)

But why should kids have all the fun? We also develop and distribute our own branded ranges to keep teenagers, mums, dads and grandparents out of trouble too!

At Hinkler, we keep our finger on the pulse to bring your family close to the contemporary characters, stories and brands that they love. We look forward to bringing new characters, activities, creative concepts and more to the table every season, offering exciting learning and creative opportunities for the whole family. We also bring new and exciting learning experiences to the table with each new season.

Toddlers just want to have fun!

If you ask us, no one is ever too old for Disney. We all first fall in love with our favourite Disney characters during our toddler years, so what little tot wouldn’t want to get their sticky little fingers on one of our Disney magic ink sets, travel marker sets or floor mats? From Snow White and Tinker Bell to Finding Nemo and Frozen, we have the perfect product for the little Disneyite in your home!

While we’re on the topic of familiar favourites, be sure to also look out for Thomas & Friends, Barbie, The Good Dinosaur and Paw Patrol across a variety of our stimulating and rewarding product ranges.

Then again, if you’re a true nostalgic, you’ll love Bonney Press – our very own series of timeless nursery rhymes and fairytales with a contemporary flavour. With Old MacDonald, Humpty Dumpty, Jack and the Beanstalk, Hansel and Gretel and more, your little ones will be counting down to storytime every night.

From tot to tween and everything in between

Many parents will be only too aware of the phenomenon that is Shopkins. You know that kids simply can’t get enough of the adorable grocery store characters such as Cheeky Chocolate Lippy Lips, Apple Blossom and all their friends, so check out our range of sweet Shopkins books and stationery sets for a more creative twist on this never-ending craze!

Have you met Harriet Clare? She’s the engaging everyday girl who gets a little nervous sometimes but who’s loved by even the most reluctant of readers. With charming characters, drawings, illustrated text and activities throughout, each book helps your child better understand anxiety through problem-solving, self-awareness and empathy.
