The Norfolk Bump, Baby and Toddler Show – 6th April 2014

Held at the Sportspark at the University of East Anglia, this was the third Norfolk Bump, Baby and Toddler Show and a chance for visitors to try before they buy on a range of goods from pregnancy through to 5 years.  Over 100 exhibitors took part at the popular event including:


  • Babygrow Keepsakes, offering a chance for parents to turn a precious babygrow into a cute stuffed animal, providing a treasured keepsake from their baby’s early wardrobe.


  • Doddles who provide art and craft themed workshops and parties were on hand with an opportunity for little ones to create a masterpiece with free taster sessions at the show.


  • Motherleylove showcased their range of natural oils for mums to be, allowing for pampering and relaxation during pregnancy and beyond, with Bouncing Baby Natural Massage Oil ideal for use when soothing your baby with a comforting massage.


  • Tiny Talk who run singing and signing classes for babies and toddlers were demonstrating the benefits their sensory classes can have on little ones, with instruments, bubbles, scarves and sensory balls used with action songs and nursery rhymes to help with communication and language skills, as well as a fun and relaxing chance for parents to meet up.


  • Baby Leek gave us a range of pramsuits and jackets compete with zippable sleeves, enabling parents to dress little wrigglers without the usual struggle when getting ready to go out. For those looking to get active with their little ones, Tiny Soccer Stars, Mini Monkey Gym and Water Babies were also in attendance.


Helpful advice and guidance was the focus of events held throughout the day including talks on Hypnobirthing, Baby Led Weaning and Baby Sleep.  A fashion show including Mummy & Millies Boutique, Coccolino and Krisella Kids was also held for the latest outfit ideas for little wardrobes.

The 2D dance company were on hand to finish the afternoon’s events, taking to the stage with dancing sessions for the little ones to enjoy and take part in.

Global Children’s Day Celebrations

There are many countries celebrating Children’s Day in April, we take a moment to look at the special ways in which countries honour and celebrate the lives of their children.

Happy Anniversary Teletubbies


On this day in 1997, the first episode of Teletubbies was screened which became an instant hit with our little ones.  The Teletubbies series brought us the lovable, colourful and curious characters Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po together with Noo-noo, and of course the adorable giggly baby which featured in the Sun at the start of each day.

The successful BBC series featured 365 episodes and was originally narrated by Tim Whitnall, and also included voiceovers from Toyah Wilcox and Eric Sykes, with CBeebies presenter Pui Fan Lee playing the part of Po, the smallest of the Teletubbies.  The endearing characters and the whimsical nature of the production immediately appealed to those of a pre-school age and older, and also provided an educational element with the repetition of certain tasks in each episode and also through the short programmes which were shown on the characters screens featuring real children.

Such was the success of the series, the work of Ragdoll Creations, that it won a BAFTA in 1998 and a Children’s BAFTA in 2002.  Teletubbies also enjoyed extensive international success, becoming a hit in America as well as here, and a vast array of merchandise featuring the children’s favourites followed and even a No1 in the charts, a song which we can all recall.

In 2007, 10th Anniversary celebrations of the Teletubbies included appearances in Times Square, as well as on the Today Show, and a European tour also followed.  The high profile of the children’s favourites also supported fundraising events in New York which in collaboration with American designer Isaac Mizrahi saw teletubby bags and new clothing ranges sold to benefit children’s charities.

Although the original series only ran until January 2001, repeats of the show continued to be enjoyed for many years both in the UK and USA.  Teletubbies proved a winning formula, which would be followed in later years by In the Night Garden, which again was created by Andrew Davenport and Anne Wood of Ragdoll Creations, and amazingly proved another instant hit.
