We have a proven track record over the years. We have created everything from an ancient sailing ship to a Giraffe House, a scaled down model of an aircraft carrier and even a book that turns into a city.
See some of our projects below.
RNLI Bespoke Product Development
Working with the RNLI was a real pleasure for us. We felt genuinely honoured to have been contacted by them and asked. We worked closely to their brief to produce the award-winning Build Your Own Lifeboat and Build Your Own Lifeboat station.
The former was highly commended at the Gift of the Year awards, and both received an ACE finalist award from the Association of Cultural Enterprises in 2019.
RNLI Range Building
Building on the first two products produced for the RNLI the following year we added two more products - Make Your Own Art Gallery and Create Your Own RNLI Blow Boats. The gallery gives young artists rub-down transfers to create a beautiful RNLI rescue scene.
The packaging can then be converted into a frame by popping out a section of the front to minimise waste. The blow boats extend the range into a younger age group and to a lower price point.
Like the art gallery, it includes a second activity – a game that extends the fun even further.
Children’s Craft Activity Range/ Chester Zoo
After seeing some of our existing nature products, Chester Zoo asked us to create a kid’s craft range featuring some of their lovely animals and keepers.
We developed two products – Create Your Own Giraffe House and Create Your Own Zookeeper’s Vehicle.
The paper engineering, graphics, styling, illustration, instructions and manufacture were all developed and finalised in-house by our team.
Vasa Ship / The Museum of Stockholm
Working with the Museum of Stockholm in Sweden, Clockwork Soldier collaborated with this Swedish gift company, Paper me, to create a model of the Museums most famous exhibit.
The Vasa Ship is a fifteenth-century sailboat famous for its unique curved wooden stern and covered in more than 500 different painted wooden carvings.
Build your Own Aircraft Carrier/Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity
Never shy at taking on a challenge, in 2020 Clockwork Soldier accepted a brief from the Royal Navy and Royal Marines charity to design and create a scale model kit of the largest aircraft carrier in the world.
The model is 55cm in length when built and comes complete with 7 mini–Merlin MK2 helicopters, and 9 mini model F-35B Lighting 2 Planes.
Build Your Own School House
Sargent Major France – a French children’s boutique chain contacted us to create a bespoke give away product.
Based on our Create Your Own Pet Hospital we created a schoolhouse version. It is by far the largest bespoke project we have ever worked on and was used as a promotional give away by the client.
