Posted on June 29th, 2012

The lovely  who blogs at  All About The Boys has set up Independence Day to support small family businesses trying to make their way in the world. I am delighted to join in again this month with a shout out to 3 businesses with great products worth sharing with all Parents out there.

The Land of Sometimes

Discover the magical far away Land of Sometimes in book and CD. A beautifully told story in songs that encourages imaginative play and make believe in children. It is perfect from toddlers up to around age. We have a copy of the book and CD here at Coombe Mill, where holiday makers can read, listen and enjoy creating their own adventures out on our farm. Do read more about The Land of Sometimes on the competition we ran earlier this year to win a copy of the CD..

The Play Wrap

The second company I would like to recognise this month is Bondie Bird. Two Mums who saw a gap in the market with their babies and have created an impressive product to fill that gap! The playwrap is essentially a portable, wearable, attachable play mat with clip on toys suitable from birth upwards. It is perfect for travelling with its own little draw string bag. We were delighted to host a competition to help promote the Playwrap, and have one here at Coombe Mill to borrow when staying. Better still if you try it here and like it as much as I think you will there is a Special one off 15% discount code for Coombe Mill followers to purchase their own! Just Like  on twitter and drop them a DM

Roobub & Custard

I had been following from Roobub & Custard on Twitter when she told me she was coming to Cornwall on holiday. I just had to meet her and see some of the lovely toys she had been telling me about. Following the birth of her son Alex, Shelley saw a gap in the market for parents wanting to buy toys and room accessories ethically made from sustainable materials; hence Roobub & Custard was born. We spent a sunny few hours together here at Coombe Mill, while Shelley shared 3 lovely products from her range which are here now for guests to borrow and following soon on the blog will be a chance to win one too!
