Established for over 30 years, Educational Colours is a market leader of educational resource products and art and craft materials in the education and retail markets of Australia and overseas. Our success has been acquired through our combination of product expertise and quality manufacturing.

The company has grown to be the largest manufacturer, importer and distributor of educational art and craft materials in Australia.  Beyond our two core brands of Educational Colours and Learning Can Be Fun we also supply specialist products that complement our current range of resources.  Brands include; Giotto, Giotto Be-Be, LYRA, KSG, Paint by Numbers, DAS, Triqo, Meadow Kids and Makedo.

Educational Colours provides an exciting and broad range of children’s art and craft products to various government education purchasing departments along with both public and privately owned school suppliers. Our range of products can also be found in educational toy stores and toy shops. Educational Colours currently distributes throughout Australia, New Zealand, the Asia Pacific region, the U.K. and U.S.A.

In October 2007 Educational Colours bought an early learning resource company called Learning Can Be Fun. Learning Can Be Fun was an established company for 20 years focusing on early learning resources for parents and teachers.

Learning Can Be Fun products are now used throughout schools and educational toy stores in Australia and seventeen countries.
