What people say about us

I bought a gorgeous Lenny Lamb dolls sling for my daughter's birthday. It was really last minute but Em and Jen went above and beyond to process my order and get it out to me in time. We had one very happy little girl when she opened it 🙂
Great advice and service to try before you buy. Definitely recommend!
5 stars thank you
I can't comment on using my new sling much yet but have tried it on and I love it. Service was amazing! It arrived so quickly! I bought an ex-rental and they were very clear about the condition. It's beautiful and can't wait to use it properly!
