We are so excited to announce that 3 of our product lines will be featured in the Toy Insider’s Guide to the Top Holiday Toys! 


At Purple Ladybug, we work hard to create the toys and crafts you and your kids love. When we design our products, we put a focus on safety, quality, and family. These values are important to us because we know they’re important to you. And we are thrilled to be recognized for our commitment to safe and screen-free fun. 

What is The Toy Insider Top Holiday Toys Award?

The Toy Insider takes play seriously. This group of toy experts reviews toys and games year-round to help parents find the best quality items for their kids. On top of their toy reviews, they produce 2 gift guides every year — and this month they’re releasing their 16th Annual Toy Insider Holiday Gift Guide. 


The Toy Insider Holiday Gift Guide features the very best gifts to thrill your child this holiday season. From stocking stuffers to on-trend toys, this guide is the place to find your child’s new favorite toy. Looking for the guide? You can check it out in Parents magazine’s November issue and on the Toy Insider’s website.

What Makes Purple Ladybug a top choice?

Kids love to create! At Purple Ladybug, we are always looking for new ways to keep your kids’ creativity nourished. Our craft kits help children find new ways to play while keeping craft time easy for parents.


"Toys that entertain kids and provide some screen-free fun are so important right now,” says Marissa Silva, editor-in-chief of the Toy Insider. “Purple Ladybug offers so many amazing craft kits that we fell in love with for lots of different reasons, but each one offers kids tons of play value, skill-building, and enhances creativity.”

Craft Your Own Lip Balm Sets

If you’re looking for hands-on and safe fun, check out our Craft Your Own Lip Balm sets. These STEAM kits get your kids learning while creating. And when they’re done crafting, they have new, high-quality lip balms for themselves and extras to share or gift to family and friends!


There are three Craft Your Own Lip Balm sets to choose from. Your child can create 10 colorful cases of all-natural lip balm (perfect for all the little boys and girls in your life), or they can get fancy with our lipstick-inspired cases — in the classic style or choose our bow tie cases for extra glitz and glam. 😍


Each set comes with everything they need to start creating. The lip balm uses only three high-quality ingredients — shea butter, olive oil, and beeswax. Your kids can add in the included flavoring for some extra zing, or keep it simple with no fragrance. Different kits have different flavors including lemon, mint, strawberry, watermelon, and grape options!


This is STEM fun for everyone! 


From Toy Insider — “The Craft Your Own Lip Balm sets feature all-natural ingredients, which parents can feel great about, and kids will love the fresh flavors and customizable labels. They can even gift them to their friends!”
