Arlo’s Toy Shop is run by a husband and wife team, Emma and Andy with a little help from 2 year old Arlo and a lot of distraction from newborn Zack.
We always wanted a family and struggled to conceive naturally, so we had to go down the route of IVF which was the hardest journey we’ve ever had to endure but we were lucky and we had our 40% chance miracle boy, Arlo. Which is one of the reasons we named the shop after Arlo, if it wasn't for him we wouldn't be doing this!
We have always wanted to be our own bosses (although one of us is a lot more bossy than the other!) and as we are both childish in nature we adore playing with toys and being creative and imaginative with Arlo. Spending hours searching the internet for toys which were different, high quality and educational for Arlo made us want to create a website where parents or gift givers can find these things!
Emma has a background in teaching which is why we really wanted to have a developmental aspect to our shop. A lot of people don’t realise all the benefits of toys and play with babies and children. Make sure to look at and follow our blog where there are tips of how to play with the toys and their developmental benefits. We are all parents who sometimes feel stuck on what to do with our babies.
We really hope you enjoy browsing our shop and if you have any feedback we’d love to hear from you. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Emma, Andy and Arlo
