Tinkers Gifts

Muddy says: Crafting’s never looked so cool. Who needs flowers when you can say it with Lego Tinkers Gifts. Unique art for all occasions. Smiley faces all round.

Lego figures become art at Tinkers Gifts

If you’ve got kids, you’ll know the indescribable pain of stepping on a piece of Lego brick or figure. It’s enough to make you grab the bucketloads occupying your house and throw it all in the bin.

But what if your little Lego man or woman could have a second chance at life? Well if their character is A-List enough in this business call craft, then there’s a chance they might make the cut. What am I wittering on about? Mini figures masterpieces

Jem, a mum, wife and self-confessed ‘craftaholic’ created Tinkers Gifts after she posted a social media snap of a frame she made to solve an untidy problem – namely, her husband’s superhero figures cluttering up the windowsill. It caused a bit of frenzy, requests came flooding in and Tinkers was born!

All the pieces made are individually designed, handmade and normally require a cuppa and biscuit. Come on, we all need a little sugar to get through the day. 

Two years on, and she has launched her website, so you no longer need to hunt Jem down at a fair, go direct to Check out the plastic fantastic characters and fun words, add to basket and jobs a goodun. The frames are really unique, make great gifts for Valentine’s, Mother’s Day, Weddings or just to put a smile on someone’s face. Plus she does bespoke commissions.
