We all know that generations are ever growing and changing. Children nowadays have a very different upbringing to those growing up 50 years ago. We do not believe there is a right or wrong way to go about parenting, everyone is different, and after all, babies don't come with an instruction manual! We do believe though that technology is have an impact on children's lives. Some good, some bad. With perspective and hindsight we can make all say, 'I should have done that differently'.
Here at Beautifully Gifted we would love to help add a little more imagination into the minds of little ones. Have you visited our baby corner yet? Buying for children can be even more difficult than buying for grown-ups as they can be extremely honest telling you whether they like the gift...or not!
Toys, story books and cuddly animals are a vast source of imagination and something to be treasured forever. Lucy still has her cuddly rat called Rattie from when she was born and he is still going strong nearly 20 years later. Even though she doesn't take him to bed anymore he still brings back happy memories.
Many of our customers that visit us in the shop absolutely love our range of Jellycat toys and we're not surprised. Who couldn't resist their fluffy, cute faces and range of colours. From Truffles the Highland Cow who has ambled into our shop and our hearts, to the not so scary Bashful Dino who will soon become a prehistoric friend. The all-time favourite Fuddlewuddle Unicorn is ready for any magical adventure. Many are suitable from birth, and many a lifelong friend can be found amongst these fluffy creations. A cuddly toy can be the source or addition to any imagination - just look at the likes of Winnie the Pooh.
We are on a mission to bring back traditional toys because we love them and want to share them with our amazing customers. We would love to hear your thoughts on this subject? Why not leave us a comment below!
