Bengaluru-based The Arty Smarty Project was launched after the lockdown by Abhishek Saraf, Abhimanyu Saraf, and Nataliya Saxena. “We have a background in advertising and wanted to do a very creative business. Abhishek is a gaming enthusiast and my dad was a pilot in the Navy. All this inspired us to come up with DIY toy kits,” says Nataliya. They have aerodynamic kits with three aircraft models. “The designs are inspired by Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Kamov Ka-50 and Aeronca L3,” she explains.
The components are acrylic pieces that are laser cut. “Each set takes around two hours to be assembled. The card that comes with the product has a QR code, that takes you to a demonstration video,” she says. Their craft kit has a clock and a lamp that can be painted by the customer. “People can select designs for the lamp from our website.” she says. The team now works on making kits on different monuments from around the world. “We are starting with the Eiffel Tower. It will be available soon,” she says.
The kit starts from ₹549 and is available in Amazon, Flipkart, and Snapdeal. Visit https://artysmarty.in/ for details.
