Our Klutz Connection

Klutz books have been a Learning Tree staple since we opened our doors more than 20 years ago! Not only are they imaginative, interesting books full of super ideas, tips and instructions, they are also complete kits with materials for being creative, crafty and clever.

Last August, Jonny Girson, one of our store owners, was invited to be on the Klutz Retailer Advisory Board at Scholastic Inc. in NYC (let’s just say he’s in with the in-crowd!) It was a great opportunity to work with manufacturers first hand.

As a follow-up, we were lucky enough to have Kim Ryon, sales manager from Klutz, come to our November Learning Tree staff meeting to show us their new line of Klutz. We got to spend the evening sampling, getting creative and training. We’re so excited to share our favorites with you!

We’re Krazy for Klutz!
