"Take sea, sand, fresh air and lazy hazy days, mix together with inspired clothing and wonderful toys, a great recipe for happy kids."



Hello, we are Annie and James, thank you for visiting our shop. Having had four children and three grandchildren we know from experience how difficult it is to find the best for your child at a reasonable price. We started our shop 15 years ago, simply because we care about children and the environment they live in.  The great goodies we have are childproof and traditional with a modern twist.


We like to think that Heirloom is a special shop.  The philosophy behind it is to encourage the development of children in safety. As well as being safe the wooden toys are environmentally friendly and will last to be enjoyed for generations.  We have selected ethical suppliers who care and they ensure that they pay fair salaries, have humane working hours and provide a decent workplace for their employees.


The baby clothes are organic cotton and fair trade or fairly traded. The designs are cool and original and will not overwhelm a tot. Oh…. and most important, all the clothes can go in the washing machine. 


We really want to put a sunny smile on every child’s face when they unwrap the gift so you have the choice of  giftwrapping free of charge with a little handwritten card attached.  Please let me know via email what should go on the card. 


We will be delighted to help you with anything you need for your child or grandchild or when you need something special.  If you can’t find it on our website or in our shop please ask us because 9 times out of 10 we will be able to help!


We hope you enjoy the shop as much as we do and thank you for visiting us. And again, please do contact us if you need any assistance.
