Hi Everyone. It has been a very long time since I last updated my blog. I have made the decision to put the shop on the market. I have been in retail now for 16 years and I feel that it is time for me to move on. I have been offered a fantastic job elsewhere and would love to take on the challenge of doing something completely different. I thought that I would "put it out there" via the blog. I know that there are many people out there that are maybe feeling the same way that I am and might be looking for a new challenge - such as owning a children gift and clothing store. If you are interested please contact me via email at email@example.com Karen x

Forwalls decal have arrived. We have ordered extra of the Forest Friends (picture above) and the bird house as these two are the most popular. These two actually work well together if you mix it up when placing the decal on the wall. If you would like me to put one aside, please email me or phone me on 61623488

Sorry it has taken so long to update the blog. Things have been a little crazy over the last month. Joh is moving up to Queensland where her family is. I am hoping that she will open a shop up north. If she does, I'll make sure to keep you all posted so you can visit when you're on holidays. Joh has been working for me on and off the last 7 years. I am very lucky to have met her and very fortunate to have her work for me. She treated Cowboys & Angels as well as LittleOwl like her own.She has been like a little sister! Bye Joshe...........I'll miss you heaps

My name is Sophie, but many people know me as Sophie la Girafe. I thought that I should introduce myself as there are 30 million of me out there in the big wide world. I was born in the olden days 25th May 1961 in France. But I still look exactly the same, no wrinkles, no nothing. I guess that it is true when they say that French woman age well.
I was the first exotic wildlife figure on the market. My father, Monsieur Rampeau made me small enough so that I would be fit in a baby's small hands. I am great for a teething baby.
I am made from 100% natural rubber derived from the sap of the Hevea tree. I was designed to stimulate baby's 5 senses.
Sight. My dark and contrasting spots make me recognisable to baby. I soon become a familiar and reassuring object.
Hearing. I squeak which will keep baby amused. This helps baby to understand the link between cause and effect.
Taste. I am perfect for soothing baby's sore gums when teething and I am completely safe. I am made from 100% natural rubber and food paint.
Touch. I am very light and soft to touch.
Smell. The singular scent of natural rubber makes me easy to identify.
I love being around children and watching them grow. This is what I have been doing for 48 years now and have been passed down from generation to generation.
Most of all, I love having my tummy pressed.....it makes me squeak.
