Ready for lift off? - We head to Kind & Jugend in Cologne

It’s less than a week until the formal launch of DoddleBags at Kind & Jugend, the leading international trade fair for baby and toddler products which takes place in Cologne. Strange as it may sound, it turns out that Germany is the best place to meet British retailers. We’ve got appointments with some of the leading high street names and we’re hoping to meet some European and Asian retailers too.

Our exhibition stand is nearly ready (Nadine has designed this with the same enthusiastic attention to detail as DoddleBags!) but we’re fretting about it all arriving safely in Germany, plus we still have a load of felt flowers to make to decorate the stand.

We’re excited, nervous and ever so slightly delirious….
