It’s hard to believe that Baker Ross was founded over 45 years ago. In that time a lot has changed – from the range of products we offer to how our customers buy from us (the internet wasn’t even invented back then).
Reassuringly though, there are quite a few things that haven’t changed a bit. We’re still the same caring, family run business with a passion for helping children’s development with fun, innovative products – most of which are exclusively designed by us. And of course, our passion extends to giving our customers outstanding value for money, and customer service that’s second to none.
But that’s just scratching the surface. The following will help you get to know the Baker Ross brand like a close friend and will help you to keep us in our number one spot for the next 45 years and beyond…
Co-founded in 1974 by Patti Baker, Baker Ross is still a family owned and run business whose innovative ideas led them to become one of the leading suppliers of arts and crafts, toys and party supplies to parents, schools, playgroups and organisations in the UK and beyond.
Baker Ross currently sell successfully in the B2B and B2C space, online and through their catalogues, from their new offices and warehouse in Harlow, Essex.
The Baker Ross team consists of over 100 dedicated and hardworking people whose mission is to reward customer loyalty and satisfaction by great service, and inspire everyone, everywhere to experience the creative joy of arts and crafts!
Meet Ralph. He’s a colourful, fun character that’s an integral part of our brand.
Baker Ross currently offer over 4,000 items through their UK and International websites and catalogues, with over 75% of their products designed in-house by their creative team.
Our widely recognised and trusted brand offers a brilliant great value range of crafts, toys and party supplies, specifically designed for kids both big and small to have lots of fun creating, learning and playing.
When kids do creative projects, their imagination runs riot. And that helps them immerse themselves in the subject, which can influence their interests in later life.
In short, we’re not simply selling arts and crafts products. We’re stimulating children’s imaginations, enhancing the learning process and ultimately, helping to shape future generations.
Our Values - Inspiring Creativity
At Baker Ross our mission is clear, to develop products that are both creative and fun at a price point that makes sense for our customers. We will always be the place for great value products that everyone loves.
In everything we do - from the products we develop to the free ideas and projects we share with our customers on our Creative Station craft hub.
Well it’s more about helping others achieve. Most of all we love helping kids achieve. Seeing the sense of achievement on a child’s face when they’ve learnt something new or made something they’re really proud of is priceless.
Arts & Crafts - they’re fun. And as for toys - well how much fun do you want? Fun is in our products and in our business.
A lot of businesses nowadays pay little regard to good old fashioned customer service. We’re different. We’re a family run business that cares about its suppliers, staff and of course, its customers.
Not only do kids learn practical skills from the vast majority of our products and Creative Station projects, they also learn about fascinating subjects too - from the Egyptians to the Natural World in our themed craft activities.
Baker Ross is incredibly excited to bring our brand to more people across the world and bring them together through their love and passion of arts and crafts.
Baker Ross will always be the best at what we do, and that’s our promise to you.
