We have also decided to remove ‘Children’s’ from the Dolls and Collectables section as we have a section for Toys suitable for Children within the Children and Baby category.
Tags for June/July
With all the great summer events coming up this month, some of our featured items on the homepage will be chosen around Wimbledon, Summer Solstice, Henley Royal Regatta and the Tour de France. We choose our featured items based on a number of tags for each collection but items tagged with tennis, summer, boats, cycling and bikes will be featured in this selection.
Until June 17th our gift guide will feature items tagged with the keyword fathersday.

We’d like to know if this sort of update is useful, so do give us your feedback on how we could improve. See you next month!
