Keycraft’s oldest and bestselling brand has become a much-loved favourite across the UK and worldwide. The irresistible animal characters in the Living Nature™ range not only make beloved childhood companions, but are very popular as gifts also.
We’re delighted that 2020 was Living Nature’s biggest growth year to date! We saw 267% revenue growth YOY, with a 74% shift to online sales. We also spent over £100,000 advertising on social media and Google in the last year, raising brand visibility and recognition to new heights.
Here are the top 10 reasons to introduce or expand the range of Living Nature soft toys in your stores or website!
Living Nature toys are a premium product range made with quality and durability in mind. We use soft-feel fabrics that can stand the test of time and enjoy countless fun adventures.
Classic animal soft toys sell well in any season, appealing to children and adults. And as we have experienced at Keycraft, they deliver exponential growth!
The huge range and wide appeal of our soft toy animals attract boys, girls and adults with varying interests, such as dinosaurs, pets, farm animals or exotic wildlife.
Whether you have a toy store, a department store or a garden centre, Living Nature soft toys sell well as gifts. They complement any seasonal period or celebratory occasion perfectly, making popular gifts for birthdays, new babies, get well soon, festive seasons, valentines, Father's and Mother's Day. Who can resist a cuddly polar bear in winter, or cute rabbits and chicks for Easter?
New animals are introduced every 6 months, allowing you to cater to popular trends and create collectable ranges that customers can keep adding to. In 2021, some instant hits we introduced were the Border Terrier, Red Deer Stag, Baby Border Collie and Cavapoo!
Living Nature toys feature fun yet educational hang tags which detail animal behaviours, diet and habitat. This appeals to parents who want to provide children with as many easy learning opportunities as possible.
We’re proud of Living Nature’s eco-friendly credentials, which consumers also increasingly care about. To help protect the planet and animal habitats, the entire range uses our Naturli stuffing, made from recycled plastic containers that would otherwise end up in landfill and oceans. Products come with a Naturli bright green, leaf-shaped hangtag, detailing the number of plastic bottles used to make them.
Our eye-catching range of branded displays make it easy for you to display the animals to full effect. This reinforces the quality and appeal of the Living Nature brand, drawing more customer attention and helping you boost in-store sales.
You can appeal to more customers thanks to multiple price points. From large-sized animals to palm-sized babies and SMOLS, there’s something for every budget. And importantly, there’s also room for you to make a healthy mark up too!
Soft toys are a popular search item, and their cuteness appeal works well for website and product imagery. Given that more people than ever have been purchasing online due to the lockdowns and reduced comfort in-store, they make an ideal Ecommerce range. We’ve even got an online media kit to help you.
