Nursery Industry Awards

Friday, September 5th, 2014

If you are in the Nursery business (in any way, shape or form!), have you voted in the Nursery Industry Awards yet?

Nursery Industry is a monthly UK trade magazine containing  industry news, developments and new product information.

The magazine rums an annual awards event, and voting for NI 2014 closes on the 9th of September. We are delighted that Chiggs has been nominated under Best Feeding Brand, and we will be voting for our stockist Angel Wholesale as Best Wholesaler, and another stockist Pure Nappy Cakes (who make the most fabulous nappy cakes containing Baby Feed Wheels!) for Best Online Retailer

Greeting Chiggs stockists.

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

We have had a real variety of wholesale orders so far this year; re-orders from our regular retailers and we also have some brand new stockists of Chiggs Wheels.

The ‘Stockists’ page on the Chiggs website has been updated. This page  lists our retailers, ‘bricks and mortar’ shops county by county, and also has  ‘jump’ links to our international stockists, and to the online retailers who also sell Chiggs Wheels.  This is an incredibly diverse range of companies, including businesses offering baby gifts, greeting cards, children’s clothing, new baby hampers, nappy cakes and baby shower goodies. Phew!

New retailers to join the Chiggs family since our last stockist update in January include Smartieprints who specialise in personalised gifts, Lemon House Gifts, based in Preston, and Baby Cakes to Celebrate have added Baby Feed Wheels and Baby Medicine Wheels to their range.

A new shop recently opened up in Darlington, County Durham, Love Style Home, are selling Baby Feed Wheel ‘new baby’ congratulations cards and also the Get Well Wheel ‘get well soon’ cards.

We’ve also made deliveries to fellow Yorkshire businesses recently, Pots 2 Go ceramic cafe here in Harrogate (pictured above), Appleby Cards and Gifts in Otley, and Magpie Greetings (also in Harrogate, and incidentally our very first stockist way back in 2006!) have all reordered Chiggs Wheels for the delectation of their customers.

If you would like to sell Chiggs Wheels through your business, have a look at our Trade and Wholesale page, and either fill in the trade enquiry form or send us an email for more information. We’d love to hear from you!

New Year, new business?

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Here at Chiggs we’ve been around for a while now (some may say it shows!) and we find that the New Year leads to an increase in the number of enquiries we receive about our products.

Baby feeding product

The majority of our business is supplying our baby feeding products, medicine timers and greeting cards to a variety of retailers- we have some information about our trade and wholesale terms on the (you guessed it!) ‘Trade and Wholesale‘ page on the Chiggs website. All but the trade price is detailed there, and interested parties are invited to fill in the trade enquiry form to send us a message. We will, in turn, reply with not only the trade price, but a lovely email with pictures and everything.

Many people must make a  New Year Resolution to start their own business, or even just to find new products for a business they are already running, as we always see a spike in trade requests in January. And with this in mind, we are delighted to announce that we have a grand total of not one, not two, but three new stockists this month!

Medicine Timers

Medicine Timers

In the last few days we have sent out orders to Oh Nappy Days (what a great name!) who make some incredible crib and even motorcycle shaped nappy cakes;  Clickandbuygifts, a onestop online gift shop, and Little Tiddlywinks ltd whose fabulous tiered nappy cakes are works of art. We are delighted that these lovely businesses have chosen to add Chiggs Wheels to their product ranges!
