Amazon Canada: 88% Off Darice Artyfacts Portable Art Studio Deluxe Kit (120-pc) - Now $9.33 (EXPIRED)
Amazon Canada has discounted this Darice Artyfacts 120-Piece Deluxe Art Set from an original price of $78.34 down to $9.33. While the 'before' price is a little on the high side in my mind, this is one large kit full of art supplies for such a small price. If you are Back to School shopping, then an art kit like this might be already on your shopping list. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.
This art kit includes 24 markers, 24 crayons, 24 color pencils, 24 oil pastels, 12 watercolor cakes, 2 clips, and 1 white watercolor tube. It also includes one of each of the following art supplies: palette, paintbrush, drawing pencil, sharpener, eraser, ruler, sponge, and scissors. All of these parts come in a black case that snaps shut. Each piece has a place in the kit to keep messes down and promote organization.
This kit includes small parts, thus it is not recommended for children under three years old. I think this would be a great kit to give your child just entering kindergarten or who is in grade school and taking art classes. Kids who are pre-school age might enjoy using the kit to draw, colour, practice writing their name, and more.
I could not find this 120-piece art kit elsewhere in Canada from any other seller. In the Amazon marketplace (instead of directly from Amazon), the kit sells from $26.60 + $9 shipping. The Darice 68-Piece Art Set is being sold for $18.99 and it is fulfilled by Amazon Canada as well. That kit is nearly half the size and twice the price. In the USA I found this kit on sale for around $10 - $13 USD but, at those prices, the kit was pretty much sold out at most distributors. On eBay Canada, I couldn't find a kit under $25 including shipping.
I also checked with a few other sources, and this is the lowest price that this art kit has ever been on Amazon Canada. With school coming up in a month and a half, pick up a new art kit now.
Shipping is free on orders of $25 or more. Under $25, there is a bit of a tiered rate depending on what shop your item is under. I estimate shipping to be around $5 if you just want the kit and nothing else. If you still have your Prime Account from Prime day, then shipping is free on any order.
