Marjorie Minnie is a small brand of contemporary blankets and cushions for cool kids and modern families founded and run by me, Gaby Durnford, a machine knitter, Textile Technician and Mama to 6 year old boy/ girl twins.
I aim to produce heirloom quality, gender neutral designs for children that also hold grown up appeal. I understand that there are a lot of design conscious parents that want to invest in a quality product that will see their child from toddler to teen and not look out of place in the adult spaces in their home.
All my products are designed and hand finished at my home studio in Bath. My blankets are knitted in a small family run factory in Scotland from fine spun Scottish Lambswool, making them soft, natural & 100% British Made.
Our bumper themed boxes are perfect for Birthday and Christmas presents or some fun family time. And our mini kits make a great party bag with a difference!
Ready? Steady? Yippee! Let’s adventure!
At Yippee, we believe experiences matter way more than stuff, and our whole ethos is centred around facilitating fun adventures every child should do before they grow-up.
‘I made a rocket! I went on a bug hunt! I was a pirate for a day!’
Designed with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) in mind, we create a range of high-quality activity kits that give the green light for special times with your little adventurer.
• Be a space explorer by making your own planet and constellations!
• Plant, grow and eat your own food!
• Make your own campfire and shadow puppet theatre!
• Create your own castle and peg princess, dragon, king and knight!
• Mini Kits: for one super adventurous activity or as unique party bag alternatives.
• Bumper Kit Box: at least three themed activities for a whole ton of play and fun, or for an unforgettable birthday or Christmas gift.
And because we understand how busy life is, we work hard to take the hassle and headache out of things, leaving you to make the most of precious family moments.
Whether you’re looking for unique party bags or themed activity boxes for fun and learning combined – we’re here to help you celebrate the everyday and build memories to last.
