Rob Dakin and Karen Northey live in North London. Both have a passion for unique and charming gifts. Rob likes to design them and Karen likes to shop for them!
Clockwork Soldier wanted to bring back the old fashioned concepts of imagination and fun, to create products that encourage children to play whether on their own, inspired by their imagination or together with friends and family. These products will often have an educational theme but our main priority is that they are fun. With this as our guiding principle, and after a great deal of hard work, Clockwork Soldier was born in 2011.
Clockwork Soldier’s core values are based on wholesome family values with a 'make and do' ethos that is reminiscent of simpler times. We are not in any way anti-technology, in fact we believe it has a vital role. We just don’t want traditional methods of play to be lost. We wanted to create beautiful gifts that children would want to play with.
