The one, the only, 'Cottontails Baby'...
Incase you haven't already heard of Cottontails Baby, it is the toy shop that dreams are made of; independent, traditional and utterly charming.
Owned by Charlotte and her beautiful bunny Humphrey, Cottontails Baby is based in the countryside of rural Herefordshire, where the headquarters are really something in themselves; picture a traditional wooden summer house, perched underneath the shady tress of a gorgeous garden - where ducks roam and bird nest boxes are always full.
Focussed on special products and gifts for babies and young children, Cottontails Baby really delivers on quality throughout its range. Being the recommended UK retailer for the famous big brand Moulin Roty, Cottontails Baby has earned itself quite a reputation! Also stocking product ranges from Maileg, Gluckskafer, Ostheimer, Ragtales, many UK makers, and soon Trousselier too, Cottontails Baby really is a hub for quality, specialist toy makers.
Currently being pregnant myself, I very much adopt the same attitude towards products for the nursery, that Cottontails Baby has - buying a few really special items that will last and inspire for years to come, rather than buying lots of cheap, low quality products from high street stores. I would much rather spend my money on really special things from an independent shop, where my money will go further and where I am keeping business local. With this in mind, I will share with you a selection of the products at Cottontails Baby, that are currently inspiring my wish list - needless to say, some of these will certainly end up in our nursery!
What is more, Cottontails Baby is currently running a 15% discount on all products until midnight tonight - just enter code 'Blackberry' at the checkout to claim yours!
Aside from this exquisite selection, there is so much more on the shop to drool over - Cottontails Baby is always updating their collections, and soon will come the time for their Christmas range to be launched, which is always ridiculously beautiful, so do keep a close eye on the shop. You can even sign up for their mailing list, here, to be kept updated.
Cottontails Baby has just celebrated its 9th birthday, and with the milestone, Charlotte has embarked on some brand developments. Leaff has been very much on hand to develop a new logo, and web visuals to inspire her planned changes there, which I will certainly be sharing with you all in due course. It is a very exciting time for this amazing little shop, and I hope that you will all be inspired to support Cottontails Baby in the years to come - there really isn't enough shops like this around.
