Coming to the Green Room in Ipswich…

The Green Room Ipswich

As part of the Green Room’s Pop up Events for 2019 we are delighted to be showcasing our products in this wonderful location.

We will be at the Green Room in Ipswich from Tuesday 5th November through to Sunday 10th November.  During these dates you will have a chance to view our wonderful range of Moulin Roty, Maileg and other products.  We are the only stockist of Moulin Roty and Maileg in Ipswich so don’t miss out on this chance to see the products.

In addition to this you can grab a bite to eat along with a fantastic coffee or two at the Green Room whilst viewing the range.

We will be posting more details closer to the time.  In the meantime why not familiarise yourself with the Green Room at https://thegreenroom.coffee/ and pay them a visit?

500 + reviews and counting!

We have been so busy preparing orders for our lovely Moulin Roty and Maileg products that we almost forgot to celebrate the fact that we have received over 500 reviews (in fact it is 527 reviews as of 19/03/19).

Looking at the statistics below we can see that 98.9% of all the reviews received are rated 5 or 4 stars:

Review Statiscs

One thing we pride ourself’s on is being open and honest and we think by sharing the stats above we are doing just that and hopefully doing a pretty good job in terms of customer satisfaction.  It has taken a lot of hard work from us to achieve the above reviews and we are very grateful for ALL the customers that have taken the time to leave a review (good or bad).

Looking back we realise that our customers are not after miracles, they just want us to do what we say we are going to do in terms of product quality, speed of dispatch and general customer service.

One thing we definitely don’t take for granted is 5 star reviews and we are always looking at ways to improve the experience our customers receive from from us.  In an ideal world we would want to receive 100% 5 star reviews but appreciate that not everything is perfect for everyone 100% of the time.  In our opinion it is how we deal with those not so perfect orders that makes the difference.

So if you are looking for a 5 star rated Moulin Roty or Maileg retailer I think you know where to come.

Lettice Ballet Practice Book

We are delighted to be stocking this beautifully illustrated book, Lettice Ballet Practice by Mandy Stanley.

We haven’t stocked any books before but when I received a telephone from the author herself it didn’t take much persuasion.  Having a young daughter that is currently taking ballet lessons there was lots about the book that made me smile.  I’m sure lots of you will recognise ‘good toes, naughty toes’!

Having written over 200 children’s books, Mandy is an award winning author and illustrator and like us here at Little Tigers, is based in Suffolk.  For some background information take a look here – https://mandystanley.com/all-you-need-to-know-about-lettice-rabbit/

Lettice is one of her most popular characters and is known for her love of dancing.  In this instalment, we learn from Lettice how she warms up, practices her positions from first to fifth and cools down.  It uses technically correct ballet terms and positions and includes the subtle message that practice and determination can bring delightful results.

Let Toys Be Toys Good Practice Award 2017

Let Toys Be Toys Good Practice Award

We were pleased to be informed that we have been awarded the Let Toys be Toys good practice award again.  This is the fourth consecutive year we have been ‘mystery shopped’ and awarded the title.

Although we don’t publicise the good work Let Toys Be Toys are doing enough, they continue to challenge retailers to stop boys and girls labels, signage and website filtering to encourage products to be displayed in a welcoming and inclusive way to all children.

They are doing a great job, take a look at their website for more information on their good work and success stories – http://lettoysbetoys.org.uk/
