How I started in business: I started Little Crab Designs, creating and producing art for little people, just over three years ago.

After looking online for ages no no avail decided...

We used the words to make a game of pairs, snap and lotto which we played together. She and her friends enjoyed the game and learnt the words. Spurred on by the warm reception, it wasn’t long before...

Just a couple of weeks back I introduced my (you could say 3rd baby) company Izzy melody to the world and with that I.M. BabyBangle....
