Top Toys Christmas 2017

04/10/2017 15:01

I would like to recommend my favourite toys for Christmas!

These are toys that will stand the test of time and inspire children to be creative.

Most of them are wooden toys as I think they offer a lovely touchy/feely experience.

They do not make any noise, which leaves it up to the child to make something out of it! this can only encourage imagination and creativity.

Mimitoys Christmas Club 2017

15/09/2017 12:11

For the past 14 years, I have offered a range of good quality, entertaining, unique and mostly wooden toys.

I don’t really propose a range of heavily branded toys or plastic toys. My passion and interest is to source creative toys for all ages that can encourage children’s development and well-being.

I haven’t started to think Christmas yet, however, as a parent of 4 children, it is in the back of my mind. There are so many other expenses around Christmas (food, drinks, visiting Santa somewhere and maybe socialising...) that planning and budgetting sounds like a good idea.

Smelling games and sensory toys, bring back your sense of smell in a fun way! From a very young age I have been sensitive to smells. My grandparents used to mind me after school on Wednesdays and I remember the smells of lily of the valley, parsley, garlic and fresh tomatos from the garden (I am from the South West of France!). These smells always bring back lovely memories. I am sure we all have these smells from our childhood that,

Valentines for children

14/02/2017 08:21

What does celebrating Valentine mean for children?

For my 9 and 10 year old it is all about "giving notes to your friends and being nice to your friends. In fact you have to be nice to everybody!" The "have to" probably means it is not like that throughout the year but it is a start! It is good to focus on kindness and love and encourage our children to behave that way. Sometimes I feel I focus too much on how...

Games for Family Days

19/09/2016 11:38

I like Sundays. Sunday is what I call "family day", no friends over, no phone, no computer, just us. It sounds head wrecking with 4 children (aged 8,10,16 and 17) but it actually is a day that the whole family looks forward to. There is so much going on during the week and Saturdays that Sunday is a real "cosy" day! We are into games and board games. However, I am the one who initially pushed it because it can be done sitting down! Our house favourite is the Monopoly Millionaire,

Wooden Construction Toys

05/09/2016 14:00

I am delighted to introduce a new range of construction wooden toys from a French company called Jeujura. It is not because I am French! but because I love that type of wooden toys. I love toys where I can sit with my children and play with them, we may not get to the end result but have fun trying and we talk too! Jeujura is more than 100 years old and makes construction/building toys (amongst other toys) in France. I have picked few models from their construction range where the pieces just slot in. The project is always challenging and can involve parents, siblings, friends. It is not something that will be done overnight but...

New Website

23/08/2016 07:35

It is finally happening, the new mimitoys.ie website is up and running. It takes a while, it is a long project and for anybody who is looking at the online route or who has already gone through that, it is a project you do not forget! It is exciting at first, then complex, mind-buggling and very challenging. It requires a lot of patience and attention to details but pays off, eventually. I have also been very lucky with the partners I have used. I suppose when you decide to go ahead with an online shop,
