Kensington Mums’ Pick of the Bunch

Trotters

Trotters Childrenswear was founded nearly 30 years ago by Sophie Mirman and her partner Richard Ross. Their aim was to create a fun and inspirational shopping experience for both parents and their children which encompassed exquisite clothing, shoes, toys and books for 0-11 year olds.

Trotters has become somewhat of an institution in Kensington. Customers who had their first hair cut or first pair of shoes fitted with Trotters many years ago are now parents themselves, returning with their own children for the same experience.

It has always been important to Trotters, to create a fun and magical environment for customers visiting the store during the festive season. This year, their namesake and mascot, Mr. Dunwoody N. Trotter will be making regular appearances across their 6 store locations. In addition to this, their Christmas windows are already twinkling with a magical Nutcracker scene topped off by their pièce de résistance, a beautiful floral arch.

Whether you’re looking for that special Christmas Day outfit complete with smart haircut, an original Christmas gift or a new pair of cosy tartan pyjamas for Christmas morning, Trotters is your one-stop-shop!


Spun Candy

Have you been scratching your head as to what to give your family members this Christmas? Then why not gift them (and yourself) a candy making masterclass at Spun Candy in the heart of London!

During a Spun masterclass you will be taught the art and science of ‘candy craft’, where their famously fun Master Candy Makers demonstrate how candy is made and then it’s over to you, the kids or the grandparents to choose the natural fruit flavours and colours you’d like. From there, your imagination is your only constraint! You can design, mix, cut and roll your own lollipops, and the best bit? You get to take home everything you’ve made.

The classes are perfect for all family members and they have been consistently rated 5-star on TripAdvisor. Booking the classes is easy online or you can buy a voucher instead, allowing the recipients to choose the best time and date that’s suited for them to attend.

Family classes aside, Spun produces amazing personalised lollipops that can look like whoever you choose but in candy form! All you have to do is upload a picture of the person you wish to give it to and they’ll work their magic. And now they even do pet faces!

This month, Spun Candy are offering Kensington Mums 20% off everything online including masterclasses, personalised lollipops and vouchers using the discount code “Kensingtonmums19”.
