In January we visited the UK Toy Fair the only dedicated toy, game and hobby exhibition at Olympia, London. Top retailers, inventors, and exhibitors flooded into Olympia, London to showcase thousands of new products, It was a fun opportunity to touch, feel and experiment with the toys of the future or back to the future even!

As a small independent business, we are proud of what we are able to offer our customers. We always keep our prices competitive, and would never add extra profit in order to slash prices so it appears as though you were getting a great deal.
Listen to what Miss Clair has to say about instore music... We love jazz and a bit of blues that kind of thing which we have playing in the background at the shop. We think it's really important because we're only a small business and when people come in they can potentially feel a little bit intimidated like they're coming into our space.
I think it really helps to have a bit of quiet soft music on in the background it just makes people feel a bit more welcome, it makes them feel less intimadated and for me and i'm getting a bit bored i can have a little dance a little sing-along.
It helps keep my energy up as well so i think it definitely has a positive impact on the whole atmosphere is the business and i know that a lot of customers say they really like the music. They say they love what we play in here and you know i think it actually helps people relax, it encourages people to stay a little bit longer because they're listening to the music and they're wandering around and they feel good!
