Introducing …. Mummy Bunny
In a nutshell, tell us about your business
I started Whispering Hallows as a hobby, a way for me to express my creativity. I have two children and have always loved to make quality handmade toys. The Bunniekins family from Whispering Hallows are different from everything else on the market, as they are each unique, with their own personalities and style.
What inspired you to set up your business?
I like to make and try different things! I also make jewellery, such as earrings, necklaces, brooches and sometimes natural baby chews. I will give anything a go at least once.
What do you love about your business?
I love the fact that I can choose what I want to make, although the best part is seeing the looks on little people faces when they see, feel and hold the bunnies. I love the feel of the felt bunnies and how each one is different with a different personality and love seeing children discovering this too.
Where would you like to see your bunnies?
I would like to see my Bunnies go travelling all over the world. We have such an influx of mass-produced toys and electronic games. Children need the encouragement to play with toys and create imaginary games and adventures with their toys.
Favourite toy as a child and why?
As a child my favourite toys to play with were dolls. I remember having so many dolls. I had tea parties and adventures with my dolls, and pushed them around in a pram. They were my babies. I had a doll that I was able to wind up and she played music and rocked her own little baby. I still have that doll!
