I took on the business after the birth of my second daughter in 2014. After becoming a mother my career in fashion was no longer a priority and I wanted to be able to do something worthwhile, that would also fit in around my girls. Aside from the need to work I was also keen to create something of my own. A business that I could perhaps hand down to my children one day. Combined with the fact that I felt there was a real gap in the market for a stylish and innovative online children’s toy and interiors boutique that offered traditional and unique designs. I wanted to offer parents, like myself, something a little different when it came to their children’s toys and interiors. With the help of an extremely supportive husband, and family, my vision was clear.
Everything that we stock is innovate, practical and chic and won’t be found on the high street. It is extremely important to me that all our products are also of the highest quality, offering parents longevity when it comes to their children's toys and furniture. Wherever possible manufacture is organic, ethical and sustainable.
As a business we also strive to keep waste to a minimum. As much as wrapping, ribbons and bows are beautiful, they only increase our carbon footprint. So all orders, wherever possible, will arrive in recycled outer boxes.
Cottage Toys is an online children's boutique designed to grow with your child. From that first moment you discover you are pregnant and start designing your nursery, to those first baby gifts, toys and beyond. We are an online destination to be revisited each birthday and Christmas!
So, if you love wooden and traditional toys, unique furniture and decor, and designs of quality, then you are in the right place!
P.S. We are also home to one of Australia's most exquisite children's furniture brands; Incy Interiors. It has taken a lot of time, effort and investment to import this beautiful brand over from Australia but when I first layed eyed on their beautiful rose gold cot I knew this brand was something special! I just had to have them in stock! You will not find anything as beautiful or unique anywhere else within the UK or Europe. We hope you agree, their cots and children's beds are beyond divine!
