If you live in Brighton & Hove, chances are you’ll be aware of Lisa Holdcroft‘s quirky illustrations – she has a range of cards and prints featuring local landmarks and her work has been used to promote the Fringe festival in the past. Influenced by children’s illustrators Richard Scarry and Janet Ahlberg, her cartoons are busy and colourful, therefore perfectly suited to the children’s market. Cue the Brighton Car Play Mat, £29.99, a collaboration with U-Drive. The microfibre topped, non-slip-backed mat features 20 Brighton landmarks, including the beach, The Lanes, West and Palace piers, the i360, the hospital, station, Amex Stadium and more. Children adore car play mats and love seeing familiar places, so this seems like a perfect pairing (also it probably counts as homeschooling, because local geography, right?). Get in quick if you want one as there are only 100 available.
