It’s Tony’s Chocolonely again, this time with a bar of their delectable pretzel toffee milk chocolate to tantalise the taste buds. Cuddling up to it is an adorable Artis de Partis magnet. The sock puppet toy the magnet is modelled on was originally found abandoned in the ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo’s Lost and Found, but has now become its most famous and much-loved mascot. Keeping him company, and also from ARTIS, is a cute jaguar patterned pencil case made from recycled plastic bottles. This special stationary keepsake was designed in honour of two jaguar cubs who were recently born at the zoo. Keeping a watchful eye over this playful gift set is ‘The Night Watch’ Playmobil figures from the Rijksmuseum Gift Shop. The kids will simply love these two miniature characters, inspired by Rembrandt’s renowned painting of the same name.
