Little WorldOur Little World online is a unique place where we share great products that we’ve found and used ourselves and on our children Charlie and Daisy. Nobody ever says bringing up children is easy, and nobody ever says starting up a business is easy, but we felt so passionate about these products that we had to find a way to combine the two. We’ve even opened a shop at 6 Maygate, Dunfermline, and in November 2011 we opened our second shop at 346 Morningside Road, Edinburgh! If you are ever in the area we would love you to come in and see us. And now its here, we want to make buying for babies and children simple, by providing products you know you can trust - because we’ve used them, our friends and family have used them, and we believe in them. So welcome to our Little World online, we hope you enjoy your visit and we look forward to seeing you again and again Website
