As well as the social networks we are on.... so basically what I normally do, just a bit more relaxed. hehehe

Let's swap!

Do you remember these cute swap cards from when you were a bit younger?
Maybe your mum would!
A young Australian artist, Sue Adams, illustrated these cute kids in the 1960's. They became very popular as greeting cards, stationary and swap cards.
Allison from Lark tracked down the original images and has brought Daisy Lane to life for the next generation to enjoy.
We've very excited to be stocking Daisy Lane swap cards and storage albums. There will be more card series coming out in the future too.

The sweetness of Belle & Boo

We're now stocking a little bit of Belle & Boo. Happy days!
In case you are not already a fan, Belle is a little girl and Boo is her bunny friend. Mandy Sutcliffe illustrates their adventures. She's based in the UK.

We have cute badges sold individually, there's sure to be one that takes your fancy.
We think they'd make swell party favours, so you can buy a mix of 6 in our Let's Party section too.
Belle & Boo's first story book "Bubbles before bed" is also full of activities related to getting ready for bed time.

Clearing the virtual shelves!

We soooo need the space and there are some OLD favourites that really need homes, so our sale is one not to be missed! We have 'slashed' our prices big time on most products.
Having a great sale comes with some conditions though.
Here they are:
* No coupon codes are to be used (they won't work anyway...)
* No laybys please (we really need things to physically leave our mini warehouse!)
* No refunds or returns (so choose wisely)

The sale will continue until stock is gone (or I wear myself out).

I know you may be puzzled with the sudden change of sale tactic, seeings I just recently started the 'brands awareness' sale. Things were not going very well and instead of riding it through, I decided that it was in every one's best interest that I stop mucking around and just do what needs to be done! I know you appreciate this.

There are some things in the works at the moment, but will not be saying anything more about it all until I've worked it all out. But we are re-jigging beyond pink and blue and focusing on particular parts of childhood, instead of spreading ourselves over the whole deal. I hope you get what I mean and will continue to support our little business.
Mon x

Boon makes bath time a pleasure!

We are very happy to welcome boon into our store. The first part of their range is dedicated to BATH TIME fun and organisation! Hooray I hear you say.
Well it's very welcomed around our home anyway.

The colours are bright, there are no holes in any of the toys (so they will not fill up with water and get all black inside and go mouldy), the floating toys, like the ring toss game and the water bugs shown above, are different and are good for all ages to play with.
The Odd Ducks are quirky as they're shapes are unique... even to each other. There are 4 to collect.
Lastly, keeping toys and bathing accessories (like bubble bath and shampoo) will be a joy to store, thanks to the frog pod (pictured) and bug pod. Their body is a scoop which detaches from the stand. You scoop up all the toys in the bath and let the water drain away through the holes in the body. Then attach to the stand again. There is a tray behind the head for accessories too.
Big bonus of boon products are that they do not contain BpA!

Makes you want to play in the bath again doesn't it? That's where I'm typing this from!

Yunginz shoes on sale!

The Yunginz™ brand came to fruition in 2007 when Jenny Celebrin got frustrated with not being able to purchase trendy shoes in small sizes for her daughter. All the decent fashionable shoes seemed to only be available from a size 12 and upwards so the challenge was on! Teaming up with Yolanda La GorcĂ© - another mum (also good friend and designer extraordinaire!) Jenny and Yolanda combined their marketing and design skills and Yunginz™ was born.

On sale Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday only. (this week.... like, now!)

Time for a kooky sale!

Heads up!
All these brands will be hosting their own mini sale at beyond pink and blue from Monday 19th April. Duration for each sale will be approx. 2 - 3 days or shorter if stock sells out.
We will be letting a few brands go, so the prices may be very low!
We've also randomly generated a list of all the brands, so it will be a surprise as to when a particular brand will have their sale.... that's the kooky part.

So now is the chance to get familiar with the brands (so you are ready for when their sale days pop up). Head over to our shop pages and look for the brands drop down menu on the left hand side, for all our brands.
We will update here when a new brand starts their sale days.......... it's gonna be a busy few months!
