Bargains.

We all like value for money – and this is what most businesses want to offer, particularly smaller shops and service providers.  The people making the decisions in small businesses have pride in what they do and want to offer you their very best. They also know  that if they DON’T offer good value, their customers will not come back or recommend them.   Some slings appear to be relatively expensive, so I completely understand why some people will be taken aback by the price of a new buckle carrier, or a high end woven wrap, even second hand.  It...

And the award goes to......

US! We are on a bit of a high here at Slingtastic. We were encouraged to enter the South West Business of the Year Awards (#SWBOYA17), which has 13 categories covering everything from large manufacturing through to micro-businesses.  I have never entered anything like this before, and I had no idea what to expect, but was encouraged by lots of people as purely entering and being part of it would get us some networking and publicity in the local area.Most of the categories were not applicable to Slingtastic, but I entered two, the Micro-Business award and the Sole Trader award....

Ten years of bedtimes means that I can probably count on our combined hands, the number of times I have gone out in the evening without children.Tonight, I am going on a Hen Night – I don’t think it will be the like the hen nights I used to go  on (it seems I can’t find any ‘suitable’ photos to share here), but actually going out is pretty exciting, so much so that I am tying it in to my blog post on slings just so that I can tell...

Carrying Toddlers – Do I need a Toddler Carrier?

Most of us think as toddlers as, well, babies who are learning to walk. Many babies go from crawling to toddling before the age of 1yr. The time when we stop calling them toddlers depends from person to person, but by the age of 3 they are often called ‘pre-schoolers’ rather than ‘toddlers’. I am not going to fuss over terminology here – the point is that it is very confusing when looking at slings.
