MUCKI Farbe Spiel Kiste mit Fingerfarben mischen

Mix colours? I can do that (almost) all on my own

08/23/2023 |

A frog is green, a piglet pink – every child knows that! But if they only have red, blue, yellow, white and black, the little colour experts can soon start puzzling. With the MUCKI Play Me Paintbox – We’re mixing painting, dabbing, clever kids can work it out in no time. Mummy or Daddy can help a little with the instructions provided – and later be all the more amazed at the colours the little fingers can already mix.


And then the kids get to paint the colours onto the funny animal motif cards. Colour fun that also trains fine motor skills with deliberate movements. Perfect for filling long afternoons with a shared experience. And a surprise for old and young. Or does Mum know how to mix a brown colour for the bear’s fur? We present this special gift idea for children aged from four years upwards.


Mixing colours and training motor skills at the same time

Like all  MUCKI Play Me Boxes, the set combines high-quality MUCKI finger paints with educationally valuable play ideas. These were developed with educators to foster children’s creative abilities, something for which there is often not enough time in day-to-day life.

The themed Play Me Box “We’re mixing painting, dabbing“ teaches kids in a playful way how new colours can be mixed from two primary or basic colours. By dabbing on and spreading the paint with their fingers, the children specifically train their fine motor skills as well as their hand-eye coordination. This approach not only enables the children to apply the paints, but feel them, too. And what do they do with the new colours! Paint our animal motifs, of course, as the fox, bear and their friends don’t want to be colourless anymore!

Colours are fascinating and mixing them is like magic. So that parents can simply let their kids get on and paint, our MUCKI finger paints are made to be child-friendly. The colours are dermatologically tested, paraben-free, gluten-free, lactose-free, nut-free, titanium dioxide-free and vegan. Parents can rely on the colours being washable out of most textiles at temperatures from 30 °C. It's great when creative adventures can also be so safe. 

Paint play in MUCKI quality

The MUCKI Play Me Box contains five 50-ml finger paints in the colours white, yellow, red, blue and black. Two small jars for mixing and storage of colours are also included in the complete set, With the ten animal motif cards, kids from the age of 4 years learn to mix intermediate colours like green, orange or pink. And to make the colour fun last even longer, additional animal motifs can be accessed via a QR code and printed out. The illustrated play instructions provide a step-by-step guide through the different activities. The grown-ups read aloud and the kids can dab and mix the bright colours. 

The MUCKI Play Me Box has been developed and is manufactured in Germany. The cardboard packaging is made of at least 95 % recycled materials. It is important to us to make a contribution for the future.
