Etsy Treasury Love

Kookie Kids

A big thank you to BonTons who featured us in her fabulous Kookie Kids treasury.


Also another little Etsy feature this week with some cool polkadot treats and our Spotty Giraffe.


It has been a cool Etsy Treasury week!  Thank you also to Jodemac for featuring our Circus Giraffe in her very sweet colourful treasury.

Hopefully one day I can catch a treasury and can feature some of these great stores as well.

Drum roll please………….

I decided to enlist the help of Ari to draw the rattle competition today.  He has been a bit grizzly of late and there was no chance of hiding from him to do it myself.


So into his snail block toy all the entries went


With lots of  “wows’ in goes the hand


I manage to get him to grab one bit of paper out of his handful.


He thinks it is a sticker and promptly tries to stick it to his foot, but the winner is:

No. 45 – Keegan Rigby – I just love the babushka rattles!!! Tatianna is my favourite one out of them, she is just so bright and cute!!! My daughter Aeva who is 8 months old this week would love her to bits!!!

Giraffe Rattle Testimonial

You have probably heard us say that we think our giraffe rattles are just perfect for those little hands learning to grasp and bound to be a favourite addition.

Rather than just take our word for it, we thought we would go straight to the source and get a testimonial from a fan of the Giraffe Rattle.

The very gorgeous Hamish is still only 5 months old, and of course does not have a grasp of the English language, so his testominal comes in the form of a some cute photos.
