‘Ottie and the Bea’ is a modern children’s shop in Blackheath, SE London. Since opening 5 years ago, their core belief has been that ‘playing and having fun is a very serious business, no matter what age you are’. They offer many of today’s finest children’s toys from around the world, which all have to fulfil their key criteria of usability, design and value. They also offer a wide range of regular events and workshops with illustrators, makers, and authors, attracting children and adults from their local community. If you can’t get to the shop in person, you can still experience some of the ‘Ottie and the Bea’ magic and order great gifts from their new website.
