We've just launched in the UK!
Our mission is to inspire a playfully sustainable world - so while we started in Ireland we've always wanted to bring our eco toys to the UK also.
We actually launched there in January / February 2020, exhibiting at the London Toy Fair and Birmingham Spring Fair. We took orders from gorgeous independent gift and toy shops, and from some of the UK's leading destinations including the Eden Project and Chester Zoo (the UK's single most-visited attraction). Then they all closed for a year. And then Brexit.
So we had to re-think! Sending orders from our warehouse in Ireland became much more difficult after Brexit. And people in the UK are used to very low-cost, next-day delivery (whereas sending from Ireland is expensive and takes about a week).
So we decided to open our own warehouse in the UK - in Bedford. We've started with just 4 of our most popular products - das.Brett bouncy balance boards, and BubbleLab plastic-free giant bubble kits. And until we grow our range enough to make jiminy.co.uk a great online toystore, we're just selling on eBay, here.
We'd love your support! You can help us by:
- Following us on eBay (if you're outside the UK you won't see any products available but that's ok, a follow still helps!)
- Following our UK Instagram @jiminy.co.uk
- Telling your friends in the UK
...thanks so much in advance!
We're nervously excited - it's a big move for us!
Looking forward to inspiring a playfully sustainable UK!
