In 2016 we created our Dragon's Sneeze fire lighter - named in a competition by several of our imaginative customers!
We've had such great feedback we wanted to share some with you.
Michael James, author of Forest School and Autism says
"I run Forest School sessions for adults with ASD & Learning Disabilities. Lighting fires is an activity which my learners find very rewarding but unfortunately some of the people who attend struggled to use fire steels.
Muddy Faces advised me to try their Dragon's Sneeze fire steels which are more suitable for people who find fine motor tasks difficult.
They're brilliant! Learners who previously couldn't light fires can now enjoy doing so. Muddy Faces practical advice and knowledge of how to make accommodations to ensure inclusive practice have definitely helped me to improve my sessions."

Stephen Simpson from Forest Schooling UK shared this wonderful video of a Dragon's Sneeze in action - we love Malek's reaction when he creates his first spark!

Both fire steel and striker have chunky ergonomic wooden handles, making them easier to use. They're attached by a brightly-coloured lanyard so they don't get lost in a natural setting.
