Hello everyone! How are you all doing? Waiting for the sunshine?


Anyone else wondering where the first half of the year has gone? I cant believe that we are going to be show casing you our Autumn collection very soon! I have to admit that it seem crazy to talk autumn when I don't think we have had a summer yet.


We've got some amazing stories and rhythms in Autumn, I wonder if anyone can guess what we might have up coming?


Todays blog really is just to show case the love we have for reading, after all they have inspired the direction the brand has taken.


So sit back with a cuppa and take a look at what's in store this week!


Take care you lovely lot.

Bringing Stories to life


Stories that inspired the brand


Each print that we release has a lot of thought behind it. When I was younger I was always with my nose in a book. A lot of the designs that I've added to the collection are from stories that hold a special place in my heart, whether that's from my childhood or from the magical moments spent with Pops. I just love the land you enter when reading. It not only inspirers imagination but its sets the backdrop of our dreams.

Role Play


So may stories can inspire role play activities. Tigers & Tea from our summer collection has been a popular one, there are so many fun things to do with this activity. Including Dancing around to Robbie Williams. Some really fun ideas are an afternoon tea picnic, face painting and of course acting out the pages of the book the print was inspired by! 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' By Judith Kerr


Here is out brand rep Jesse enjoying acting out the story while he reads the book. We do love the use of the eco friendly wooden toys too. The WoodenToyshop.co.uk have an amazing collection of bright colourful wooden cakes that you could use to to bring the story to life.

We even have our very own Popsy and Mama Perfect Nannie to take you on a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious journey through the story while enjoying the beautiful design that is Cherry tree lane.
