Christmas Special News!
We have been busy behind the scenes putting together our new collection and are looking forward to sharing it with you. It has been such a challenging and difficult time this year but with the recent news, we hope you are all feeling more hopeful and festive. We are of course unable to hold our usual Open Day this year, but have been preparing a special something that will be available next Saturday.
In the meantime, we thought you would like a taste of what's to come – may we introduce you to the new Aimi, the first of several dolls that will be available. Please email if you would like to make her yours.
See you on Saturday 21st November for the whole collection!
