Henry’s New Shoes!

Geox Kiwi Canvas shoes have surely stood the test of the toddler! Most weekends the suede everyday shoe has, without fail, stomped around the garden and peddled furiously on a ‘three wheeler trike’ and all thanks to the sturdy sole; not given in… The easy strap on design allows for a quick slip on and removal during the busiest of the Buxton summer (ish) days. Even if the weather has been not so great, the shoe has a waterproof sole designed perfectly for the two year old who absolutely must jump into that puddle at the side of the street!


Bargains at Minibugs’ flash sale

High Peak Parenting

Minibugs, the awesome children’s store in Buxton, has a flash sale until Monday with 25% off all full priced clothes. I can’t resist a bargain so popped into the shop.

I bought these gorgeous Frugi dungarees which are perfect for a crawling baby. We already have a pair in 6-12 months which baby A wears constantly, she looks so cute in them and that makes me happy! They’re soft, easy to put on (and take off with pootastrophies) and have washed really well – no shrinkage or colour loss.


They come in a number of designs, but this was my favourite.


I also sneeked a peak at their discount rail (see Sale section online) and picked up another of the Little Green Radicals’ cotton jumpers. Soft, comfy and on the big side – so they last ages. A cute jumper which keeps baby warm and as its not too…

Bogs: brilliant snow boots!

One of our lovely customers happily road tested a potential new brand BOGS…….

High Peak Parenting

Living in the Peaks you need a coat for all weathers, but what to put on children’s feet? We found ourselves always taking wellies AND sturdy boots with us when we went out for the day. Boots are always better for running in and wellies better for splashing in puddles! Was there one brand of footwear out there that could be great for running and give welly protection? The good news, there is!

Nichola at One Small Step asked us (well, E really) to test a new brand she is thinking of stocking – Bogs. E was really excited when we picked them up and loved the cute animal design.


Apparently they are all the rage in America, but not that well known in the UK. At first glance, I have to admit, I was a bit sceptical as they look just like wellies. But after two weeks of…

4th Birthday Celebration

4th birthday party

It’s our 4th Birthday Party Thursday July 16th 4pm-9pm. Wow I can’t believe it’s 4 years since the day we opened, we’ve had highs and we’ve had lows but overall it’s been an amazing journey. The most important and the nicest part for me has been all the lovely families that I’ve met and how supportive people have been. I don’t suppose I realised when I opened just how important the relationship with the children and families would be. Doctors, dentists and health check ups are always promoted and everyone knows the importance of them, whereas foot care can maybe sometimes take  a back seat. It’s so lovely to be able to offer a service where people trust me and have the confidence with fitting their child with properly fitted and quality footwear. I hope you will be able to join us to celebrate, look out for the email/facebook invite. It will also be the start of our huge sale so be prepared to bag a bargain!! We will have a raffle on the night too with all proceeds being donated to Buxton Mountain Rescue.
