It feels like weeks ago but I arrived home last night from Kids In style after a quick pack up and dash to the airport for what was a very delayed flight . The Trade show was great although very nervous for our first ever trade show it was I think a great success . We saw lots of our existing stockists and gained lots of new stockists which I am now very excited to be bringing you our goodies in lots of locations around Australia stockist list to come soon .
Our stand was a clean and very simple set up due to the logistics of doing our first ever trade show and it being a long way from home in Sydney .
We also launched what is going to be our small and new home wares range. We had a very overwhelming and positive response to these - so we will hopefully extend this range for Christmas . Photos of our floor rugs , cushions and reversable blankets are enclosed . These will be available in our online shop the end of March . It is a very busy week filling orders before we take a well earned holiday to South Africa to catch up with Family . Wish us luck I will post some on this when we get back . Would love to hear your feedback on our new range what do you think ?

I have to admit when I saw these stamps they where to fantastic not to share . I loved stamp collecting in my younger days and I also loved reading and listening to Roald Dahl books so for the the Royal mail to combine the two is swoon worthy . Check out the Royal Mail website for for more of the collection.

We have some new friends joining the La de dah family next week . Our 3 new friends freddy fox , Miklah mouse and elephant ( i know not a very original name ) will all be joining our other characters in our shop . These guys are all made from a 100% cotton yarn and have the same hard wearing qualities that our other toys have .
Baby O's monkey was put to the durability test this week when he had an accident on monkey . I have to say after a handwash and a hang on the line it came back as good as new . This is a quality I definatley look at when purchasing a toy . One that is made to last . Contact me via our here if you would like to pre-order one of our lovely keepsakes .

Introducing our latest creation a pram string . What a weird name? and where does it come from?. It is in fact a made up name but hopefully the photos I have enclosed also explain . Our latest creation is a pram string and they will retail in our little online shop from $40.00 and some of our retail stockists .
These are available in 3 designs an owl and rocking horse done in greys and creams for great gender neutral presents . We get a lot of requested for gender neutral presents and hopefully these fill the brief for our customers. We also have our trademark Babushka which get smaller in size like a real babushka doll set .
Every little icon has a rattle bell inside and is sure to fit across all prams except a double pram .
These are great and practical presents. I am not sure about you but I saw a huge gap when looking for baby pram entertainment that could be secured to a pram , that was adorable , quirky , durable and great age appropriate baby entertainment . Check out our website or contact us for stockists . They are a great gift . Sorry about the quality of the photos but you do get the idea ....
