Touchy feely – Customers like to see it in their hands.

Good afternoon all,

First of all I would like to apologise for the huge gap in our blog posts, we have been quite busy, and in honesty I think I suffered a bit of writers block. I try to make every post interesting, and just rambling on about nothing to do with Little Acorns is pointless.

But I wanted to share with you what we recently experienced, and is a key factor between big toy companies and little ones.

We had a little stall at our children’s school to raise funds for school projects, which went very well, and we sold quite a few toys, but more importantly we had some great feedback and made some new friends.

Anyway get to the point Amanda, we sold more toys that struggle online, and this took us back a bit.

The toys that have done well for us online went well, but the toys that we have struggled to sell went like crazy.

The toys I’m talking about, are the Waybuloo Picture Magnetic Board:

Peppa Pig Camping Theme Make and Play Card Playset:

The boxes these toys come in are very attractive, they are a perfect size for birthday presents, and they are reasonably priced. We in fact havent sold many of these at all online, and on that day we sold every one of them, and some mothers asked when we getting more in, so all in all it went well.

It’s a shame that we can’t demonstrate the toys better online, so that customers can see how nice they are,  and that is the advantage that shoppers have when they go to the high street.

Just thought I’d get that off my chest, and hopefully I will get back to posting more often.

Come on sun, where are you! Typical, as soon as summer holiday start, the weather turns for the worst.

Shaun The Sheep Is Top Spot For March!

Little Acorns Top 5 Best Sellers

Little Acorns Top 5 Best Sellers

Hello all,

As I’m writing this I’m looking out and its pouring down with rain, and I have just heard on the news that this summer is going to be the best on record – Funny thing is they said the same last year, and I can remember we had one good week!

Anyway, I thought you might be interested in our “Top Five” for March, and the top five being the top five best sellers for us this month.

1. Shaun The Sheep
2. Elmer The Elephant
3. Wallace & Gromit
4. Mr Maker Making Kits
5. Waybuloo

The number one seller Shaun The Sheep, is no shock to us in honesty, as it fills that position nearly every month. We have a good customer base in the UK, and a very good customer base in Europe & America.

Elmer coming in second is due to our European customers, whilst Wallace & Gromit does well in the UK and America. Mr Maker seems to be a UK market toy for us, I actually don’t remember one Mr Maker toy being sent overseas, but as it’s a CBBC show, that would make sense really.

And last but not least is our brand new Waybuloo toys, as we have sold quite a few of the very nice wooden toys to customers in the UK and America.

I hope you found that a little interesting, as it was a quick blog entry really.

Thanks again for reading, and I hope we can all enjoy a nice summer this year with the children.
