Get your Kids sorted for Christmas - Cobalt Heights & Squoodles

One of the coolest things about being a "small business owner" in NZ is that throughout my travels to different markets and online I have made some really awesome friends. 

Its been a really long time since I did any major shopping at a huge retail store like the Warehouse. Now - Don't get me wrong, this isn't because there is anything *wrong* with these big stores, its just that since I'm a small bizz owner myself I like to support other people like me - Hey if we don't help each other out then who will? 

I have had this blog in my mind for a while and wanted to let some of my ladies with little kiddies in their lives in on my biggest sanity saver - Squoodles

Constructive Eating Set

Squoodles are an online toy store based in Auckland, New Zealand. The company is owned and operated by a good friend of mine called Tracy and her hubby. They stock a huge range of quality and educational toys and activities for children of all ages. 

                 21 Piece Tool Set

I have 2 little boys aged 4 and 5 at the time of this blog. I'm pretty sure these kids have had "Squoodles" Birthday and Christmas presents for the last 3 years if not more. When buying pressies for my boys I prefer to go down the path of "legacy" toys - by which I mean toys that will last a long time (hopefully to adulthood) in the hopes that one day they will still be in good enough nick for their kids to play with (haha I'm such an old softie right?).

Anyway - Their range starts at $1.95 - Doesn't really get much cheaper than that. The delivery is reasonably priced and FAST - As in "holy shit I have a birthday party to go to tomorrow and I haven't fecking bought a present yet" FAST, and the range is huge! There is tons of good quality options to suit kids of all ages.

I challenge you to put your money where it will be valued this year and support small, New Zealand owned companies. When you buy from them your money makes a difference. Its such a good feeling. Tracy has kindly given me a code for yall to use too that is valid right through until the 1st of October 2017! There is no limit too so you can use it more than once - simply head on over to www.squoodles.co.nz  and use the code " CHTOYS917 " at checkout for 15% off your entire order! 

They are also in the running for the Network New Zealand Business Awards - Finalists in the "Customer Service" category and also in the running for peoples choice. This is a huge deal and I know they would apreciate your vote x 

Thanks for reading guys xx see ya next time! x
