'I adore Sydney's approach to play. She takes something as simple as cardboard and tape and creates beautiful activities and role play items... She shows time and time again that toys don't have to be fancy and expensive for children to cherish them and gain important early years play experiences from...The simplicity of what she does is not only good for our planet, but I have found, good for our souls too.'
'Sydney's sustainable crafts leave me in awe every time, her genius creativity from everyday objects knows no bounds, they challenge us to think differently and inspire our next generation of little ones.'
'I absolutely love Sydney. Her clever cardboard crafts and her appreciation of the simple things in life makes her a breath of fresh air. She is a joy to follow on Instagram and this book packed full of smart yet easy-to-follow ideas will be the saviour of many rainy parenting days - being kind to the planet at the same time.'
'A beautifully sustainable and simple book celebrating childhood through earth friendly, achievable crafts. An ode to the joy of slow-living.'
'Sydney's aesthetic is calming, charming and her cardboard crafting is like no other. Whether parents seek to create an intricate dolls house, a complex SLR camera, or fun kitchen utensils, board games or costumes with reusable materials around your home (Witches Hats never looked so good), she is my go-to for inspiration.'
'Sydney inspires the kind of adventures that are hidden in your house, and a kindness to ourselves as parents. Her creations are so genius and yet so simple to recreate - she is a genuine star! I absolutely love to see what she's come up with and the joy it spreads across the internet.'
'Sydney's crafts have a low-fi charm that make them accessible to all parents yet completely enchanting for all children.'
'These crafts are so much more than the sum of their parts. Of course, they're fabulous examples of resourcefulness, creativity, and sustainable choices but, beyond that, they teach kids - and adults - to look at "stuff" differently. Where some would just see trash, these crafts teach them to envision the treasure they could become.'
