The innovative product enriches peoples’ creativity, inspiring wonder and curiosity while educating and delighting consumers, who love to bounce, stretch and pop their way to less stress, more creativity and better thinking.

“I am absolutely blown away by the response we’ve had to Crazy Aaron’s,”’ says Chris Lohmeyer, managing director of DKB Toys. “The customer feedback on Crazy Aaron’s has been nothing short of amazing and we are delighted with how its going so far. Our best-sellers include the recently added Honey Hive and Hide Inside Sweet Surprise, the awesome Mini Tins and two of our absolute favourites since launch: Hide Inside Mixed Emotions and Super Scarab.”

DKB Toys launched Crazy Aarons Thinking Putty in the UK with 17 lines back in 2022, quickly adding four additional lines to the Mini Tins range.

Demand for the brand shows no signs of slowing, with DKB promising to continually change up the range so it remains fresh for its customers. Chris adds: “There will always something new, exciting and trendsetting to see.”

To this effect, two brand-new lines are coming to the UK in Q4 2023.

One is an ‘animal-tastic’ new addition to the Hide Inside range, while the other is bang on trend with colourful confetti to squish and squeeze.
