Christmas is a time where we like to celebrate happiness, share things, give each other gifts, spend more quality time together as a family or close friends. We tend to have more social gatherings, like Christmas get togethers being work, family or friends.
For most of us at this time with the lead up to Christmas, it can be a special time, decorating your house with gorgeous Christmas Decorations. Maybe organizing a family time where you put up the Christmas Tree together.
What an exciting time Christmas is! Christmas day, apart from celebrating the Birth of Jesus, I see a lot of people come together to celebrate this special day, share quality time and exchange gifts as a tradition that has been going for so many years.
Personally, this is my favourite time of the year, I so much love Christmas, I am also a Christmas Baby, born only 4 days before Christmas. My parents say they never forget that Christmas I brought so much joy to them.
Work wise, have called myself Mrs Claus for quite a while now, as I specialize in organizing your Christmas Decorations with special ones like these.
I source out a variety of special items, which most of you have the pleasure of enjoying themselves or giving to someone else.
I also specialize in creating Personalized Gifts for every occasion.
What a joyful time of the year, to have your Baby with you for his or her First Christmas!
Personally, I must have been the talk of the moment on my First Christmas as I was born a few days before Christmas, and was First Grandchild for both sides. Oh I feel very special about that
I am sure many of you are going to experience that either with your first child, grandchild or other siblings this year. They might be just born or they might be toddlers crawling around the house, or maybe even almost walking.
What a trill to be able to buy something for a little one again. I find great enjoyment buying things for young ones, as I love seeing their eyes glow when they open presents. It is different when they grow up as they are very particular in what they are after. So enjoy making them happy!
In our store, we have lots of gorgeous and unique items that are on offer. One of them is a special keepsake – personalized Christmas bauble, that you can enjoy for many years to come on your Christmas Tree, you can choose from one of the many designs that we have on offer and personalize it with a name or a message, or you can also have your own image. You can browse at the selection over here. Please do not leave it till late to order these, as Mrs Claus is already getting busy organizing and making orders to help Santa.
Maybe it may sounds not like a lot of fun, but in reality you would have done the best thing by your child.
Educational toys are lots of fun, and at the same time they are learning as they play. Have a look at the list of categories you can find in our store, and maybe check them one by one and see the range of fun educational products that you will find under each category.
We have purposely, listed them under the various categories, so it will give you a guide as to what activity and skills you might want to offer and develop. You will find a range of activities for various age groups. They can be offered both at home or in a group situation, like playgroups, kinder, or crèches.
Make yourself a cuppa and just browse through the different categories, and find what is best suited for your child.

Bullen Plaza – Thursday 20th(3rd Thursday of the month)
THIS MONTH Thursday September 20th – We are reinventing this special day which will showcase a variety of local handmade item stalls, in conjunction with retailers having super specials of the day and free food samples! They will have a fabulous roving entertainer Edvardo who will perform between 10am and 2pm. Sometimes comic. Sometimes serious. Always fun. Edvardo, the performing waiter, comes to serve Bulleen. Comments and stories from shoppers will be playfully woven into song. With warmth, humour and his unique talent for spontaneous song, Edvardo is full of surprises
Kids Play Tents have arrived in store with different theme designs to choose from
As a child, have you sometimes wanted to have a little space or hideout to call your own . I remember myself, I used to go behind our corner coach at home, and enjoy that little space for myself for a period of time, either playing with some of my favourite toys or reading.
I think we all need time out from time to time. When I was sourcing out products this year, I came along this range,
Friday 24th August – Caribbean Gardens Every Friday, there is a day Market at the Caribbean Gardens, and every First Friday of the month, it is focused on Baby & Kids Market. You will find an array of products and you can also make your shopping for fresh produce… It is all undercover…so you will be well protected from nasty weather, also if the weather is good the kids train rides are free….! I exhibit here every Friday…so you know where else you can find me.
Memory, memorial…not like the real thing…but helps us to hang on to someone dear to us......
If you are here, you must have gone through a great loss. I do feel your pain....maybe not as much as you do right now, but yes I have been there myself as well.
Long time ago, at one of my exhibits, I was asked if I would do a Memorial Keepsake Bauble, which at the time I did not offer one from my Christmas Selection. I pondered, and I realized what a thoughtful thing it was, to have your loved ones on the Christmas Tree as a memory. Since then I think I have filled a big gap, as there are not many available. I feel I have helped many along their journey of their grief.
These days, with most of our kids being spoilt with so many clothes and toys, one always is on the hunt for something special like a Keepsake which can be treasured for many years to come, when they are after a Special Gift for a Baby, Christening or Baptism.
Parents these days get so showered with gifts, that probably they will never end up using. So a gorgeous keepsake like this I am sure they will end up treasuring.
Teamson Kids & Nursery Furniture is in store and wow hasn’t just been a big hit!
We all love special and unique things, especially if it is handmade and handcrafted with love. This range is hand carved and hand painted by talented artists. It is not mass produced, so very limited stock enter Australia.
If you are in the hunt of purchasing a Doll House or Play center, I thought I share a few tips with you to help you make up your mind.
I had 2 kids of my own and worked with other children for 25 years, so I have been on both sides of the fence. On my On-line store as some of you know I do stock doll houses and various play centers in different shapes forms and sizes. When I am doing various events around Melbourne, my question to a person concerned who is in the market of purchasing one is…..
Market day happens every 3rd Thursday of the month for Bulleen Plaza. It will be nice to catch with the local people and anyone who passes along that way. Bulleen Plaza is known for all the different cafe's, that it has, so why don’t you stop by have a coffee with a friend and browse around the shopping center and the stalls that exhibit on market day. One of them of course is me…so who knows I might see you there.
I personally attended the Melbourne show last February, and as I expected, I ended up gathering quite a few information on some home projects that we were entertaining to do at the time. The show was buzzing with lot of activities and live shows with the lovely personalities we are so used to on the TV Show, “ Better Homes & Garden”.
Wooden Rocking Horses are always a fascination of mine…..!
Ever since I was a child I had always this fascination with Horses. Unfortunately I am not game to ride one, so if you are like me the next best thing is to offer young children…the enjoyment of a rocking horse.
Rocking horses have been in existence since probably the 400BC. In the age of Chivalry in the 1300’s wheeled horses were made for children to re-enact, and by the nineteenth century, pull along horses were created in England, Europe and America.
As some of you have noticed our store,
is booming with new and exciting products, more will come in the near
future. I am always on the hunt for something special for you to enjoy
or to pass on to someone dear to you.
