Well it’s been a busy month how glad I am the big events are over. They are amazing but really hard work at the same time but we would like to thank The disabled Living team from Kidz to Adultz up North and The OT Show team and all at the NEC for all there help and guidance on these big events. We learn every time we do a big event like these what we are doing well and what we need to learn from (we’ve certainly learnt we need a proper trolley to carry all our items!)
The biggest thank you has to go to my parents my mum being teacher for my little man who is now homeschooled, and helping get me organised and my dad who did both the events with me on his days off from his other business (and lent us a member of staff), I really am so lucky to have this amazing support network around me a little brother who helps me set up and ropes in a friend to help us out too, It really is a family business.
It’s also great getting to meet other exhibitors we had a great guy Ben from Integrex next to us at the OT show who gave us some very valuable tips on where to park and even gave me sweets (much needed) and let me play on the amazing interactive games they sell.
So I think our most popular products have been the unusual magnatabs have been a sell-out everywhere for kids with confidence issues around writing for whatever reasons (motor skills, autism, dyspraxia or just bored of the usual hand writing sheets) these are perfect.
Our glitter lamps have also been a big success as they are the first type like that which don’t heat up at all so perfect for babies up to elderly and everyone in between.
We love meeting all the families and love finding out what kind of things they want us to look out for, if you have any suggestions we are more than happy to try and find them. We even have a few people interested in designing things we know people are looking for now so it’s a very exciting time.
Now to decide which shows to do next year……………..
