Is your child the Face of Cheshire Toy Shop?

I’ve been working on updating the Cheshire Toy Shop website recently as it’s 3 years since its last revamp! It’s an ongoing process, but I’ve pretty much got the bare bones done now – I hope you like it.

I’ve already got some gorgeous images from some of my favourite brands, including Brio, Sylvanian Families, Bigjigs and more. But I really fancied the idea of using “real children” – children who visit the shop and play with our toys.

Luckily for me, our next door neighbours here at Glebe Farm are Firebird Photography, Alex and Katy are fab photographers who specialise in child portraits.

Photo shoots at Firebird Photography

So, we’ve run a joint competition over the last few weeks to find The Face – well Faces actually – of Cheshire Toy Shop and Firebird Photography have been photographing lots and lots of children, using some of our hand picked toys as props.

Alex and Katy have kindly whittled the photos down to a mere 199! pics for me to go through to choose the ones I’d like to use on the website.

Oh my goodness, they are amazing! It made me quite emotional looking at them all. I can only imagine how pleased all you Mums and Dads must be with the pictures and I’m sure you’ve got some beautiful portraits to treasure.

Can you spot your child?

I’m going to start selecting the first few images to use on my website over the next few days, and over the next month or so, you’ll see more and more pics being used.

So, keep an eye out – and if you see that your child has been featured, pop me a quick message as I’ll have a little gift for your child – you can email me, or message the Cheshire Toy Shop Facebook page.

I’m so excited – here’s a little peek of some of the toys we used – and I know some of you love them so much that you’ve already bought them!Click to browse


So, I’d like say a massive Thank You to Firebird Photography for offering the free photoshoots for the competition and a huge Thank You too to everyone who has taken part.

Watch this space!
