About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

The Playbox business concept is simple. We want to make creation easy and fun. And we do it by offering a wide range of crafts, hobby articles and games at affordable prices.

We think that creating things and making things with your own hands is about the most fun of all. You get a huge amount of pleasure from letting your imagination run wild and making things for your own use, decoration or as treasured presents. And there is a special kind of fellowship that is difficult to replace from doing things with your friends, classmates, your children or parents. To put it simply, just doing stuff in all of its forms.

Company founder, Per-Erik Johnsson, got the idea of starting Playbox from the pleasure he gained from creating and playing. At the end of the 70s he began to produce and sell creative toys at markets in the Småland region of Sweden. His business grew quickly, and during the 80s, Per-Erik travelled to China to look for more exciting products. This laid the foundations for what would later become ”Playbox - the international Swede in the craft and hobby industry".

Since then, the company has grown and developed. The Playbox range now contains more than one thousand articles for crafts, play and hobby. Playbox sells to schools, nursery schools and leisure companies through dealers. We also offer our products to all creative and active children and young people, adults and other consumers through high street and online shops.

Take me directly to Our products

The Playbox product team have listened closely to what our customers are saying, and collaborated closely with our suppliers to hand pick a range of products for various types of creative pursuits. We offer a wide range of products for scrapbooking, jewellery making, bead pegboards, seasonal activities and much, much more. We also sell loose articles, such as cloth, wool, cotton, cardboard, glue, feathers, foam balls and other things that you can really let your creative juices flow with. If you really want to make it easy, we also have kits of material or craft products, containing everything you need to make original and decorative things.

Our range encompasses craft materials and accessories in bulk (wholesalers), to ready-made craft sets and materials suitable for end-users (retail trade). Our classics are beads and pegboards, jewellery sets and scrapbook materials. Our product developers keep up with the latest trends, and quickly pick up on new products that develop into crazes.

So whether you are young or old, professional handicraft worker or an enthusiastic amateur, we hope that you will find pleasure from, and use for, our products.
