Why we love Nutty Putty

Why we love Nutty Putty

We first spotted Nutty Putty from Alphabet Pie at Spring Fair earlier this year.

Our arts and crafts range is one of our best sellers. I also have 2 young children who love to get creative. After spotting this, I thought this would be an ideal addition to our range.

When is it available?

Nutty Putty from Alphabet Pie will be available in the UK at the end of April 2015. In preparation, the full range of Nutty Putty is now listed on our website.

Nutty Putty in the UK

What is it?

We were lucky enough to be sent some samples of Nutty Putty with some tools to work with.

Nutty Putty 8 Colours

How to describe it….um…well..it comes in individually zipped packs. It is squidgy and glossy, not hard; so easy for little hands to work with.

20150328_124731    20150328_124324

It is essential to use it on the playmat provided otherwise it will stick to other surfaces, but on the playmat, it is easy to roll it, cut it and mould it.

It is a delight to work with as it doesn’t dry out. You can also easily stick colours on top of each other to create unique designs.

 

20150328_131451 20150328_131447 20150328_124734

You can also bake it!

20150328_13303920150328_125815 20150328_125809

The sets are full of ideas on things to create, or you can use your own imaginations. Once you have created your designs, you can pop them on the baking sheet provided, and bake them in the oven for 10 minutes. This then creates a permanent ‘toy’ to play with!

Then the fun continues…

Baked Nutty Putty is smooth, bendy and a bit bouncy! It even sticks to windows! You can therefore let your imaginations run riot with creating decorations, a set of numbers for learning, the alphabet and more besides!

You could also use this to create keyrings, or jewellery using the accessories set, or anything you can think of! Or check out the Nutty Putty videos for inspiration!

Feedback from the Product Testers

The Bear (5) and Miss Rabbit (3) loved this! They created some glow in the dark stars for their bedroom windows, trees, people and more! They loved the fact they were able to so this themselves and that they could make whatever they wanted. They particularly liked the fact that they could bake it to keep it forever. A real hit in our house and I am sure it will be in yours to!

You can advance order your Nutty Putty be emailing us at info@thebearandmissrabbit.co.uk or you can waitlist the range on our website.

We can’t wait for the stock to arrive!

Melissa and Doug Bag of Bugs

 

These are one of our favourite spring time toys. Such a simple concept, but so many ways to play with the Melissa and Doug Bag of Bugs.

The Bag of Bugs is available in a pack of 10 bugs at just £3.99.

What can you do with them? Here are some of our ideas!

1. Learn to count from 1 to 10

2. Learn the names of each of the bugs

3. Learn to recognise and name the colours

4. Numeracy skills – take some of the bugs away and see how many are left

5. Have an indoor bug hunt on a rainy day

6. Water play – will the bugs float or sink? Great fun in the bath or the paddling pool!

7. Hide the bugs in the garden and see who can find them all the fastest

‘You look very summery!’ My Kids dressed me part 2

‘You look very summery’ My kids dressed me part 2

As you know, we are taking part in #mykidsdressedme for Comic Relief Red Nose Day 2015.

The campaign is now starting to snowball which is fantastic. Pippa at Story of Mum has been in The Cornishman and we have all also been featured in the Daily Mail online!

Part 2 at The Bear and Miss Rabbit HQ

I first let my kids dress me on Feburary 8th, on a Sunday, safe from the school run! But – on a cold but sunny Friday morning, infact, this morning – I did it again!

I have to say; I think I got off quite lightly. But, it was still a great insight into the minds of my kids.

Their process of dressing me works like this:

1. Choose clothes we like

2. Choose more clothes we like

3. Put them in a pile

4. Mummy puts them on

They seem to select clothes they like based on colour – they like colour, and design. So today was about scarves (yes – plural as I am wearing 2 of them), shiny red shoes, and a top that they like as they like the lace on the shoulder.

However, there is no consideration from them on weather! So despite it being a glorious sunny day, the outfit consisted of no warm socks or a coat!

My kids dressed me at The Bear and Miss Rabbit

I think I have got of lightly today! #mykidsdressedme

20150227_081203

2 scarves as they couldn’t decide on one they both liked!

20150227_081215

Shiny red shoes!

20150227_082735

Some bling – available on the top of a cake from a bakers near you!

Haven given this some thought – I think if you have children under the age of 6, you may get of lightly! They seem to like to just choose colourful things that they like. Over 6….well that is when they have a concept of this being funny….you may be in trouble ;) It will be interesting to see as more people join in.

20150227_083629

And of course – some princess jewellery

 

I did get a few odd looks on the school run! However – I think this is because I was a blast of colour on a cold February morning! As I entered the classroom I saw a sea of parents in hats, gloves and dark coats….

I appeared like a springtime flower! ‘You look summery’ was the most popular comment.

So, will you be joining us?

Why not join our facebook event to keep up to date.

Tidlo High Tea Shape Sorter – Ways to Play

Ways to Play with the Tidlo High Tea Shape Sorter

 

Tidlo High Tea shape sorter

We have had the Tidlo High Tea Shape Sorter for a few years now. If I think back, I think we have had it since The Bear was 3 and Miss Rabbit was 18 months (they are now 5 and 3).

If you follow us on social media and on our blog; then you will know that we like toys that last. We also like toys that encourage imaginative play; and this has certainly met that criteria. In fact, the way the kids play with this has evolved over time.

What is it?

The High Tea Shape sorter is a two tier wooden cake stand with 15 cupcakes of varying shapes. Each of the cakes also has a number underneath that corresponds to the number on the cake stand.

Ways to Play

This is just some of the ways we have played with the High Tea Shape Sorter over the last few years:

1. Use the cupcakes as wooden food for a tea party

2. Put the cakes in order by number

3. Match the cakes to their number on the cake stand

4. Line the cakes up and take one away. Work out which number is missing.

5. Name the shapes

6. Talk about the colours and name the colours on each of the cakes

7. Talk about the cakes; which one is your favourite and why

8. Celebrate a birthday. We often use these as cakes for birthday celebrations for our teddies and dolls

9. The Bear and Miss Rabbit love to put these into pretend party bags for their dolls and teddies to take home from birthday parties

10. Set up a cafe and display the cakes for sale

11. Pack up a picnic and go on an adventure

12. The Bear and Miss Rabbit have set up a classroom for their dolls and teddies and used the cakes as pretend pots of paints!

13. The Bear and Miss Rabbit went ‘sailing’ in a pretend boat this week and used the cakes as fish food :)

14. Play chefs!

These are just some of the ways we have used this. We would love to hear yours!

National Trust – A day at Tyntesfield

A day at Tyntesfield with The Bear and Miss Rabbit

We love the National Trust; and for the second year running have been lucky enough to get National Trust membership as a family Christmas gift.

I love the places, but also the fact that it always means that wherever we are, we can usually find a great day out.

New Play Spaces

The Trust have recently set up some new play spaces at a number of their properties, and one of those local to us is at Tyntesfield.

So on Valentine’s Day, off we went on an adventure!

We were lucky – the sun was shining, and it was a glorious day.

The snowdrops were out!

20150214_132729

 

And off we went.

 

20150214_115120

It is a big area to explore, and some of the hills are steep (and a little slippy when wet). The 5 year old loved it, and with encouragement even the 3 year old made it to the woods.

20150214_12075420150214_124516

There was lots to find enroute!

20150214_12474620150214_123618

 

And when we found the den building area we were in for a real treat. Dens to run in, nursery rhymes, a fire, marshmallows and hot chocolate!

20150214_121209 20150214_121147 20150214_121816

More than enough for a great day of family fun!

20150214_122926 20150214_123640

 

We even went Apple Bobbing! (although a little helping hand was required – it was harder than it looks!)

20150214_133907 20150214_133525

 

Both the kids loved it! Lots to see, lots of space and very welcoming.

Daddy and I loved how welcoming it was and how clean and family friendly it was.

Next on the list is Dyrham Park; but we will definately be back!

What Happened when my Kids Dressed Me?

When my Kids Dressed Me!

You will have seen that over the last few days, I was inspired to let My Kids dress me after seeing a post shared by Pippa at A story of Mum.

So on Sunday, I thought …well…why not! Let’s have a trial run! If we are going to recommend it, and encourage others to take part in #mykidsdressedme, for Red Nose Day 2015 then we really need to have done it ourselves!

So, I called the kids upstairs!

‘Yes Mummy..’ they said (after they eventually appeared on about the 4th time of calling them!)

‘Can you choose me an outfit please’ I requested!

The result….big smiles and excitement…a lot of shoes were discovered, tried on, cast to one side. Jewellery selected, scarves checked…and a lot abandoned on the floor.

My Stylists

I guess at this point I should introduce my stylists.

Meet ‘The Bear’. The sensible one of the family! He thinks just putting this hat on is a little bold and out there!

The Bear

In the safe hands of this cheeky chap, what could go wrong?

Well, we now introduce Miss Rabbit. Who loves pink, glitter, stripes, unicorns and rainbows. She is the more flamboyant of the two; who loves to trot about in a pair of Mummy’s heals! And this was her own combination today (and beautifully modeled!)

 

Miss Rabbit

How did they do?

Well I will let you be the judge of that!

Still not sure? Here’s a final recap:

10 reasons to let your kids dress you on Red Nose Day (or indeed any other day…!)

1. It will make your morning A LOT more fun (because it’s hard to shout “Shoes! Teeth! Now!!!” and laugh at your reflection in the mirror at the same time)

2. You might actually get to school/work/out the house on time and smiling (we got to school on time for the first time in ages because the kids couldn’t wait to show the world how fabulous I looked…)

3. Even if you don’t get to school on time, everyone will be laughing so much they probably won’t notice. Plus, if you nominate 3 other people to join you, you get to laugh at them too…

4. Your kids will think it is brilliant (either because they genuinely want to make you look ‘good’ or because they genuinely want to make you look like an idiot).

5. It’s a great confidence booster. The kids felt like visionary stylists, and I felt pretty amazing (afterwards…!) that I was actually brave enough to prance around the playground looking like that.

6. You’ll be raising invaluable funds for Comic Relief

7. Those funds will help amazing projects like these.

8. You might just discover a great new colour/clothes/hair combination that you’d never considered before. I shall be wearing pink tights and red shoes again, genuinely…

9. One silly colourful morning might just change our big grey world for the better. Because…

10.  Did I mention you’ll be raising invaluable funds for Comic Relief…?

 

Have fun! We certainly did!

My Kids Dressed Me

You have to love social media, The speed at which a share, a chat, a few tweets, and before you know it – an idea has hatched and a plan is in place. Here you can read about how it happened, and how to join in! Our why not have a look at what happened when my kids dressed me!

How did it happen?

Friday morning my day started with the usual email check and flick through twitter and facebook. On Facebook, a picture from Story of Mum caught my eye. Pippa from Story of Mum had let her 4 year old dress her for the school run; resulting in a stunning red shoes and pink tights combination. The post made me chuckle, and I though that my followers would like it; so I shared it over at The Bear and Miss Rabbit.

Story of Mum                                               Story of Mum My Kids dressed Me

 

Pippa had been inspired by this brilliant post from Summer Bellessa last week (I Let My Toddler Dress Me For Week – Here’s What Happened).

Well, a few retweets, and tweets later and with more involvement and encouragement from Amy Beeson-Uddin of The New Arrival, and many more lovely brave people, Pippa, Amy and I quickly agreed that Comic Relief would be the perfect incentive! Lets do something funny for money!

Pippa then got extremely over-excited when Comic Relief’s very own Emma Freud tweeted her love of the idea…so that was it! #mykidsdressedme is officially ON.

What’s the plan?

On Red Nose Day, Friday 13 March, let your kids get you dressed. I have done it and believe me it is a lot of fun! You can do it then, or if you prefer, any other day in between. And if you would like to do it for longer, then feel free!

Tracy Martin is the owner of online traditional toy store The Bear and Miss Rabbit. I live in Somerset with the hubby to be, The Bear (the sensible one) and the slightly bonkers Miss Rabbit!

Meeting Theo Paphitis

Meeting Theo Paphitis

 

Theo Paphitis The Bear and Miss Rabbit

You may remember that we were awarded an SBS Small Business Award from Theo Paphitis in November.

Well, as you can see, last week the day finally arrived for us to go and collect our award.

Small Business Sunday Award Ceremony

On Friday 30th January, us, along with a number of other UK small businesses went to the ICC in Birmingham for the annual SBS networking conference.

I have to say I was a little nervous! Nervous about the event, what to expect, what to wear, what to talk about, and of course, about meeting Theo Paphitis as well.

However, the SBS winners are a fantastically supportive bunch. From ‘chatting’ over social media before the event it appeared that everyone was nervous, but we were reassured by those who had attended before.

On arrival at the ICC, we were shocked by the number of people there! A fantastic attendance from winners old and new; and as the day unfolded I could see why.

The day began with some chatting and networking, and then Theo Paphitis took to the stage to talk about SBS, plans for the day; and his business journey.

_H1R9252

The day continued with an inspirational panel consisting of Julien Callede from Made.com; Rob Forkan from Gandys FlipFlops and Judy Naake who introduced St Tropez to the UK. It was fantastic to listen to their stories; how they started out, why, their hard work, determination and how they have turned their businesses into successes.

_H1R9340 _H1R9339

There was so much information to take in; but a few points stuck in our mind:

  •  You don’t have to be first to market to make a success, it’s OK to copy someone else and do it better. Other people sell some of the same products as us. We are striving to offer a site that serves the growing needs of your children, that is easy and quick to use; with exceptional customer service.
  •  We are all masters of our own destiny, Theo is an incredibly motivational and supportive of our individual businesses, but it is us who must use that and create the success for ourselves.

 

  • If you’re not boring all your friends and family about your business you should be!

 

  • I run my business from home. This used to concern me….however; listening to Gandy;s – they also started from home. We all have to start somewhere and running the business from home gives me the flexibility I need as a Mum, but also allows me to meet the high service standards that I set for the business. It has also allowed me to be shortlisted for a Home Business Innovation award from The Guardian.

Oh, and finally….the first £1 million is the hardest! If I get there then I will let you know ;)

It was motivating, inspirational and fin. We will definately be attending next year.

Thank you Mr Paphitis!

The Guardian Small Business Showcase

IMG_9933

This is a really exciting time for us at The Bear and Miss Rabbit!  We entered the Guardian Small Business Showcase 2104 in November 2014.

Home Innovation

There are a number of categories to enter, but as The Bear and Miss Rabbit; established in July 2012; continues to be a home run business, I entered the Home Innovation category.

I submitted our entry, which was subsequently published on The Guardian website at the end of November. This in itself is exciting for a small, independent family ran business.

However……we then received a call! We have been shortlisted as one of the 3 businesses within the Home Innovation Category! Amazing News!

I could not believe it! What a great end to the year, and what a great start to 2015 as we are featured as a write up both in The Guardian newspaper and on their website today (7th January 2015)!

IMG_9925-001

 

What happens next? Well, we are off for a peak at the other businesses shortlisted ;) But, there is an award ceremony later in the spring in London to look forward to. Watch this space for further details!

A big thank you to Frances Louise Photography in Street, Somerset for our photos. I had a lot of fun having these done.

Plans for 2015

Plans for 2015

It is here! The fun of Christmas is now over, the decorations are down and 2015 has arrived!

The Bear and Miss Rabbit

We have already been busy over the festive period making changes to the website to ensure shopping with us is as quick and easy as possible. We have improved our search function and we have also added paypal express checkout.

What does 2015 have in store?

The year is getting off to a great start. Although it is a quieter time sales wise, the early part of the year sets the foundations for the coming months. We have Toy Fair and Spring Fair to look forward to where we have the fun of researching and choosing new stock. Last year we introduced a number of new ranges including the Tidlo 2 in 1 shop and theatre. I wonder what we will find this year?

We also start the year with a trip to meet Theo Paphitis to collect our Small Business Sunday award.

We also have a little something else in the pipeline that we will share with you shortly!

Improved Service

Our service is really important to us; ensuring we have a selection of products in stock that we can get to you quickly. We change our courier through 2014 and 95% of our orders reached you in 2 working days (and often quicker!).

To help with all those last minute gifts, this year we will also be introducing gift wrap so that you can ship a wrapped gift direct to the birthday boy or girl. This will be introduced in the Spring of 2015.

We are looking forward to this year! We enter our 3rd year of trading and have learnt a lot along the way!

But, by far the best help for us is word of mouth. So if you have bought from us, we would love it if you could leave a website review and tell your friends about us!

Thank you!
