the challenge

To create a website that appeals to both enthusiasts and children, while offering a wide range of products, we needed to consider a few key factors. First, the website should have a user-friendly design that is visually engaging and easy to navigate. This includes incorporating large photos to showcase the products and attract customers’ attention. Additionally, customer reviews play a vital role in building trust and credibility. Integrating a customer review section will allow visitors to gain insights from others’ experiences, ultimately influencing their purchasing decisions. Considering the extensive product range of over 25,000 items, it is essential to implement effective search and filtering options. This will help customers find their desired products quickly and efficiently, enhancing their overall shopping experience. By addressing these aspects, we can develop a website that caters to both enthusiasts and children, provides an extensive product range, and offers a visually appealing and user-friendly platform.

the solution

We utilized Magento 2 to create a user-friendly website that features a mega menu and 12 primary categories, each with various sub-categories.

Our website design offers convenient colour filters, shape options, sheet size variations, and thickness choices, among others.

In addition, we have incorporated a reviews extension to provide valuable feedback from customers. To enhance the browsing experience, the category pages display clear “sold out” captions when products are no longer available.
