The American Specialty Toy Retailing Association has designated Renegade Made® Craft and Activity Kits as a finalist in two catergories the 2016 Best Toys For Kids. 

It seems like we could all be better renegades in our everyday lives, and these kits certainly help get the job done."

TOY FAIR TRENDS TO WATCH:  "We all want kids to learn that giving back to their community is a good thing. That lesson is more likely to stick when fun is involved, which is why we love the idea of Fairly Painless Tattoo Lounge for Charity from Renegade Made."





Jim Bessman: Examiner.com

"Renegade Made debuts line of 'altruistic' craft and activity kits at Toy Fair... (but) don’t be put off by new toy company Part Time Renegade’s new Renegade Made line of craft and activity kits.

Over the years, we’ve featured loads of great craft kits for kids that flex our children’s creative muscles as they try their hand at making cool new works of art.

Corinne Schmitt: wondermomwannabe.com

"...my absolute favorite was Nicole from Renegade Made. Not only did she create an entire product line devoted to teaching kids altruism, but she made random acts of kindness more creative and fun than I’ve seen before. "

"I expect many more amazing ideas to follow from this witty, sarcastic, altruistic mompreneur."










Felicia Hodges: Hudson Valley Parent

Encouraging good deeds is a tough lesson to consistently teach, but Renegade Made Kits provide a fun way to get the point across with a “street art” meets “random acts of kindness” feel.
