Our wonderful characters Lulu and Henry are being loved and celebrated across the globe, with plush dolls, and their very own lines of merchandise such as stationery products, picture books and apparels.
Our love and passion for art and children have led us to Little Atelier™, New Zealand's first and only art program for children as young as 2.5 years old. Each program is catered for children's age and skill level, introducing master painter artworks with a touch of art history, not only do we teach artistic techniques, we also focus on creative thinking and art literacy.
After seeing and talking with parents who value education, and yearning for their children to learn skills and knowledge for the ever-changing world, that's filled with constant technology innovations and economic uncertainty, In 2015, AJ Studio launched the first and only STEAM program for children as young as 3.5 in New Zealand- Little Lab™, a hub where we focus on the teaching of coding, robotics and 3D design to the young minds, to encourage the integration of science + technology + engineering + art + math = STEAM, transforming learners from technology consumers to technology innovators.
