Last year around this time, my local art store closed. Bummer, I thought. Until I saw what replaced it… Blue Daisy — a great children’s store in Hampstead with everything one could possibly need for newborns up to pre-schoolers.
They stock all my favorite and necessary items, like the Beaba Baby Cook and silicone spoons, the Mokopuna merino wool baby clothes, the Swaddle Designs swaddling blankets, Sophie the Giraffe, bottles, bibs, bath toys, buggies, wooden toys, etc. etc. Need a Bumbo or Baby Bjorn baby chair? Or how about the Phil & Teds Me Too chair? They have it at Blue Daisy. Seriously, if you want it, chances are they have it.
How great is it to have a local shop like this?! The staff is always very friendly and helpful, and they have a play area for kids as well as a kiddies toilet in the store. Shopping made easy.
And now my local store can be yours too! They’ve just opened up their on-line shop, and they will ship internationally (though not very cheaply).
