Help me do my job #999999999999
 
I am looking for educational cards about the desert and/or the ocean, they are to be put in a give-away kids bag with all kinds of other goodies, like a desert/ocean puzzle (which was very easy to find).

Basically what I need is playing cards size cards with all kinds of (fun) facts about the desert and ocean. Think about Flora & Fauna, biggest ocean, deepest ocean, smallest animal, largest one and on and on, perhaps of those animals as well. Childrens age category would be between 2 to 7 and we are looking to buy at least 100 decks each to start with.

Here's the dealbreaker: price cannot be over 15Dhs.

Have you traipsed around some toy shops?

Or googled for suppliers of such items?

Yes and yes.

Going back to Dubai on Friday to try some more shops as trying to explain it on the phone is useless with some people. I did try to google, but it needs to be a local supplier (UAE), and most barely have websites.

Was even looking into the possibility to try and let them make it specially for us but the ones I found are waaaaay to expensive.
