We’re really proud of our stockists.
They really care about children, the environment and our clothing. Babi Pur is one such company which sells Pili
Pala clothing online and in their lovely Porthmadog store.
The company was established in 2007 by husband and wife team Peter and
Jolene. Following the birth of their
first daughter, Harriet, they found city
life quite challenging and decided to leave the insurance companies they worked
for and return to Jolene’s home town of Porthmadog.
Inspired by their daughter and the need to ensure she was dressed in
ethically produced clothing and played with toys that would stimulate and
educate her without damaging the environment, they set up an internet company sepecialising
in ethical babywear, childrenswear and accessories. 2007 was a particularly busy but exciting
year for Peter and Jolene as Isobelle, their second daughter was born and
cemented their belief that children should be brought up in a world which
encouraged fair trade.
If you’re looking for a gift for someone special, or fancy a peek at their
shop, take a look at their online shop.

Did we scare you? No?
Didn’t think so. We’re more Casper the Friendly Ghost than Nightmare on Elm Street over here!
had a great time this Halloween. We’ve
been pumpkin carving, dressing up as witches, vampires and ghosts and had
friends over for a spooky tea. We’ve
been apple bobbing, trying to grab sweets from the top of flour mountains using
our mouths (and getting covered in flour in the process), telling scary stories
and generally having a great time.
the sugar rush of today, we’re planning on turning the glut of pumpkins we have
into some tasty pumpkin
soup – ideal as a warming lunch on these cold days. Yum!
Hope you’ve had a great Halloween. Keep sending in your spooky photos, we always
love receiving them. You can also post
them to our Facebook page!

We just had to share this brillant review of our organic bird print T shirt. It truly made our day. Thanks Marius!
“I’d chosen a In the Night Garden top that my mum had bought my daughter for her to wear today. She refused point blank saying ‘quack quack’. I thought she’d lost the plot until she went and pulled ...out your birdprint top and started to put it on. She never turns down the opportunity to wear Night Garden clothing! You’re bigger and better than my daughter’s favourite TV programme!”

busy collecting conkers this week. We
spend ages scavenging through leaf litter under the huge Horse Chestnut trees
to find the spiky green balls. Minding
our fingers we carefully peel back the prickly shell to reveal the brown shiny
seed. It’s one of the great joys of autumn! We don’t know about you, but we also love
wandering through the woods, collecting bright orange leaves to make collages
and running through the puddles of leaves everywhere. When the rain stays away, it’s a great time
to be outside don’t you think?
back to conkers. We’re out and about
searching for the biggest, fattest ones. We then line them up and select our
best ones ready for a conker battle. By
the way we’re not allowing any sneaky tactics involving vinegar dunking or nail
varnish to harden them! We’ve just been making a hole through the middle(ish)
and threading shoelaces through them before going for gold and taking it in
turns, walloping each other’s until someone wins! Great fun!
on, send us your conker battle photos to firstname.lastname@example.org

The nights may be drawing in and
there may be a nip in the air but the call of the great outdoors has never been
louder. With piles of leaves to run
through and shiny brown conkers to collect it’s a great time to pull on some
wellies and get out there! Building a
den or playing hopscotch on the pavement - hurtling around in the fresh air gets
the blood pumping and blows away the cobwebs!
Playing outdoors is hugely
beneficial to the physical and mental health of children of all ages yet
there’s increasing evidence that we’re doing less of it. We’re therefore lending our support to the
Love Outdoor Play campaign – a great initiative which encourages people to get
together within their communities and look for ways in which we can all help
children play outdoors safely.
Daniel Raven-Ellison, one of the
Love Outdoor Play’s organisers explains the aims of the campaign: “We are asking people to take a very simple action.
Make or get a Love Outdoor Play sticker and put it up where you live or work.
Research shows that in many communities we’re afraid of what other parents will
think of us if we let our kids out to play or walk to school. By putting a
sticker up you not only show that you support outdoor play but can start a
conversation about how play can be improved for children where you live”.
come on, get involved, sign up,
make a sticker and get out there and explore!
