The beginning of the year is always quite busy with few big French Trade shows and my mission is to find there the Best French children’s products and bring them into the UK.
Last week-end, I was in Paris at Maison et Objet, the key meeting place for professionals in the art of living. That’s the second largest exhibition center in France with 246,000 m2 of convention space and 8 halls. You will find everything for your home: Decoration, design, furniture, accessories, textiles, fragrances, tableware… but also the world of children. I would have loved to explore all the halls but I stayed in the hall 6 to find some French treasures for little-ones.
Here is a small selection
Doudou et Compagnie, the French specialist in baby comforters and soft toys are now developing their range of soft dolls.
Superhero or Pirate with a cool gift box
or this adorable cupcake’s dolls
Histoire d’Ours is part of the same group and usually offers more classic and realistic Plush Toys. They now dare to bring colours and the result is great!
Bright Green for the Crocodile or the frog
The Bunny : Blue or Pink/Liberty?
Moulin Roty is traditional French children’s brand which started with toys and has now everything from the furniture, decoration, toys to clothing. I love particularly the world they create.
In the world of Nursery Rhymes
or the world at School
But finally, we don’t always need to guide the kids towards an imaginative world. Keep it simple and subtle and your child will create the characters and will tell you the story. That’s Pigmee‘s direction. This brand leave more room for the imagination.
