I recently interviewed Tracy about her lovely children themed business.
What is the name of your business and what do you do?
The name if the business is ‘The Bear and Miss Rabbit’. I sell traditional toys for children – toys, gifts and arts and crafts that everyone will love. Toys that children will love, learn from and that also allows them to use their imagination.
What made you start your own business?
I was made redundant whilst on maternity leave with my daughter (the real Miss Rabbit). With 2 children under 3 I was struggling to find employed work that would cover the cost of childcare and offer the flexibility needed with a young family.
If there was one piece of information you would pass on to someone thinking about taking that leap, what would it be?
Believe in yourself and take things one step at a time.
What have been your biggest obstacles
My biggest obstacle is time. Time to do everything that needs doing! However I know that this will change as The real Bear and Miss Rabbit start school and preschool – so one step at a time!
Anything exciting coming up?
Our summer range is now in stock, and I hate to say it in April – but we are now looking into new ranges for Christmas!
