About Us

Welcome to Penny Bobbin Toys and Gifts.


With a background in education and a passion for business, it was very easy to decide the kind of online business that I would like to run.


The memories we have from childhood often include fondly remembered toys – the battered teddy bear or train set.  Some of these are even passed down to our children.  The youngest member of our family has inherited a wooden car which was bought for her father when he was a toddler.  It is so well built that she can ride ride around on it and is never short of willing volunteers to push.


I hope you will enjoy browsing through the products available.  Each section has its own story.  The Furry Friends section includes beautifully-designed soft toys from the Swedish manufacturer, Bukowski Design.  I first saw their products in Poland and, in fact, was ushered into looking at them by my husband – most unusual behaviour from him, when out shopping.  A lovely feature is that each of the bears is based on a real person.


Play is essential for children’s development.  The Traditional Toys and Little Learner Toys sections feature sturdy toys to help fire imaginations, build essential skills and most importantly – enjoy!


The toys on the website have all been chosen with quality and safety at the heart of the selection.


I have also included a selection of gifts to enjoy giving to special people in your life and at special times.


As a new business we welcome suggestions and reviews from our customers.



Best wishes

Susan
