THE man behind colouring books for adults has launched a range of products for men and women who won’t grow the fuck up.
Inventor Dan Fitzgerald said: “My eureka moment came in an awful ‘child-friendly’ restaurant I’d mistakenly wandered into. These kids had been given crayons and paper, but I noticed that long after they’d grown bored their parents were still feverishly colouring in. I suddenly realised there was potentially a huge gap in the market.”
Mr Fitzgerald said his toys and games were primarily targeted at adults who wanted to “snuggle up in the warm cocoon of childhood nostalgia and never leave – in other words emotionally immature knobheads”.
New toys in his range include building blocks with Ferraris painted on them, spinning tops in ‘on-trend’ colours and the one where you hammer wooden pegs through holes again and again and again.
Mum-of-three Samantha Jackson said: “Oooooh, I can’t wait to try them! I want them all. Right now!”
