Are your toys made in Britain?

Are your toys made in Britain?

Some months ago we saw a couple from Kent, the Bradshaws, interviewed on TV as they had determined to buy only British made products.  We were reminded of the “I’m Backing Britain” campaign of the late 1960s (which shows our age) and wished them luck with their quest. We sent them a message to this effect but did warn them that finding British made toys might prove difficult.  Our only suppliers that produce everything in the UK are Orchard Toys,…

Warehouse Sale – Update – 2nd Day cancelled

This was our first ever sale at…

Toys Made in Britain??

Toys Made in Britain??

The BBC Breakfast programme is featuring a family who are trying to buy only British made goods.  How good to see that idea back I thought as I watched, reminded of the We’re Backing Britain campaign of the late 60s.   Then I choked on my cornflakes when I reflected that, if they were looking to buy toys for the couple’s young children they might be hard pressed, remembering what we sell ourselves that is made in the UK which, I’m…

Christmas Toy Prices

Christmas Toy Prices

Are children’s toys and Christmas presents about to become more expensive ?  Last week The Times carried an article suggesting that manufacturing costs in China were climbing as workers look for ever higher wages, and materials costs are rising too.  It seems certain that those costs will be passed on to Western consumers, and here at Mulberry Bush we’ve already seen a number of proposed price increases from importers.  Needless to say we’re negotiating hard to keep increases to a…
