August already? Where did July go?

Can you believe that its August already? And now spring is almost upon us again. I don’t know about you, but I must have blinked and missed the first half of the year. Such a shame that the older we get, the faster time seems to pass, especially now we are prepared to appreciate it more.

Thanks to everyone who has supported Monkeytail and Wellington in its first full month of trading. It’s been very stressful, but very exciting. I’ve been so pleased to meet so many of you and receive all the wonderful feedback on the site and products. It was also great to meet everyone at the Strand Night Markets in Townsville last Friday night. It was a last minute decision to attend, but I think well worth it!

Our summer range of Monkey-Do stock is here. I met Jane of Monkey-Do at the Life in Style trade show in Sydney earlier this year and fell in love with the simple designs and luxurious fabrics that she uses in her designs. To me, this range epitomizes “celebrating kids being kids” because it is all about hanging out in your PJ’s! There are no gimmicks or advertising and kids look like kids in these clothes and not mini adults. All sweetness and innocence.

I’m most excited about our Little Hero capes, masks and power cuffs which arrived last week. Monkeytail and Wellington are exclusive stockists of this range in Australia and they really do look as good in the flesh as they do in the adorable photos. Young Wellington is a huge fan of her cape and only answers to Super Welli when she’s wearing it!

Good news... We will have more Owly Shadow Puppets available within the week. Their popularity has been quite overwhelming and we had to put in a rush order to keep up with demand. So if you’ve been eyeing one off but haven’t let me know, drop me a line to reserve one because I don’t think they’ll last long.

We’ve also introduced a new Sale category where we’ll be listing great bargains. Currently you can find Anamalz bonus packs there. Each pack includes a FREE Anamalz figurine, a FREE Wild Anamalz CD and a complimentary calico storage bag and collector cards. You can save up to $29.90!!! Also on sale are party invitations from Zoomerang. At $7.95 each you save $2 a pop!

Don't forget if you are a VIP you get ongoing discounts even on top of our sale stock!

And lastly, something a little fun. I am usually the last one to pass on an email joke, puppy collage or chain letter damning you to tarnation if you don't pass it on to your entire address book within 3 seconds, but this I found quite cleaver and worth a giggle.

The other night Monkeytail wanted to watch a puppet show rather than read a bed time story. So, resourceful Dad pulled up You Tube and this is what he found... now you can imagine how our bedtime song goes!

Bye for now, Vicki xx
