We love to discover new and interesting ideas, here are some of our latest finds!

What are little girls made of?

We are so excited to show this newly published and glorious book full of well known fairy tales and nursery rhymes, told from a feminist persepctive!

Doctor Foster, went to Gloucester, in a shower of rain. She fell into a puddle, right up to her middle, and fixed the broken drain.

Find this, and many more tales, with stunning illustrations. A book that every child should read! £9.99

Whirligig Toys - Glow In The Dark TShirt1

Glow In The Dark T-Shirts

The most glow in the dark t-shirt we have ever found. The shirt is supplied with a UV torch on a lanyard – when you draw on yourself, the pattern will last for around 5 minutes before fading, when you can draw and design a new image. Play hangman, noughts and crosses or go to the school disco in them!

With lots of different sizes available, these are perfect presents for the whole family. £14.99

Sew A Puppy

A really cute puppy – to make for yourself! This is a really easy sewing kit – all the difficult parts of the puppy have already been made. All the child has to do is to stuff the back and then join up the seam using a plastic child safe needle, with pre-cut holes. They will end up with a really professional looking soft toy, that they have made.

Presented in a lovely gift tin, this is a great way to try out sewing for the first time. £12.99

Roll the dice and find a new combination that has never been told before, as you weave the stories together and come to a new outcome.

Perfect for fans of the stories or those just discovering them – invent your own tales! £12.99
