Bring a circus to life by assembling this kit of 3D paper craft pieces! Introduce your child to jugglers, hula hoop artists and ballerinas as they fix the pieces and come up with fun stories. This lightweight kit requires no glue or scissors. It is easy to carry around for playdates and travels, ensuring hours of enjoyment on the go!
- 1 upside down clown with 2 hula hoops
- 2 ballerinas in different poses
- 1 weightlifter and 2 dumbbells
- 1 juggling joker on a unicycle

- 1 rocking seal
- 1 seesaw with a small ball
- 1 ball
- 1 small stage
- A beautifully illustrated box that can be used as a prop in play
- A manual explaining how you can put each piece together
- Show your child how to fix each piece by referring to the instructions in the manual. Talk about the circus, the different acts they would see there, and explain each piece to them.
- Pretend play with the pieces by building stories around them.
- Mix and match the pieces – the weightlifter could carry the ballerinas, put the clown on the unicycle, let the seal play with the hula hoops!
- Add these circus cutouts to other play sets. What if you brought in some more animals to the circus? Or you took the circus to perform in a castle?
- Try to imitate the acts and put on a circus at home. Teach your child to juggle, use a hula hoop, or show them some easy ballet steps.
- Trace around the paper cutouts, sketch, and colour the images. Draw a circus scene!
Placing each piece into thin slits requires a firm grip and delicate balance. Working on this will strengthen your child’s fine motor skills.
Finding the right way to fix the paper cutouts together will hone your child’s problem solving skills.
Coming up with different ways to fix the set and games to play with it will keep their creative spark alight!
This kit is made with eco-friendly materials and coloured with non-toxic child-safe paints. Tested and certified by ASTM and EN71 international toy standards.
