Welcome to Little Ones, our traditional wooden toy and children's gift store.
Having moved home after a stint abroad, I decided (on a bit of a whim) that a venture of this nature might work. Running my own business would be more flexible and better than going out to work right? So, after a few months preparation, in September 2007, I opened the doors of Little Ones and launched our original website.
At the time my kids were 4, 3 and 11 months. Today Cian is 17, Millie 15 and Owen, my baby is 13. I have been my own best customer down through the years and I love sourcing products based on the stages which our kids and nieces and nephews are going through. With 3 kids, 11 nieces and nephews and plently trade shows thrown in, I think most areas and stages are covered! Well, I hope!
My original aim, which still applies today, was to supply our valued customers with a wonderful selection of high quality goods at affordable prices. With this in mind, we have sourced a fantastic selection of toys and gifts that will be treasured for many, many years. I think it is a testament to the quality of our stock that we survived the volatile economy in which we opened.
Online you will find classic toys which are fun, well designed and excellent quality but, above all, we ensure our products provide excellent play value and will spark your child’s imagination. Wooden toys are proven to improve a child’s development, such as motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination. Our renowned suppliers select environmentally-friendly materials to produce these gorgeous products which are then treated with non-toxic, water based dyes to add colour and vibrancy. We also stock a beautiful range of unique and practical gifts for a new baby or christening.
In 2019, we launched our own baby range, branded 'Millie and Me' after my daughter Millie. We currently have a lovely range of baby bandana bibs in store and we have a range of organic cotton babygrows and accessories in production. We are excite to extend this range, bringing you quality, organic ranges using on trend pantone shades and prints. Keep and eye out for us. Our dediciated website will also be launching soon.
We believe excellent customer service is imperative and we offer this in store and online via friendly, knowledgeable staff who are more than happy to help with suggestions or choosing the products. Whether you choose to visit our wonderful shop in the heart of Ennis, or simply shop on-line, you’ll find beautiful gifts that are as delightful to give as to receive. We rotate our products on display in the shop so you can see the fantastic quality for yourself.
