I was contacted a little while back by Islington mama Lydia to see if I’d like to feature her shop, Tinker Tailor.
After a quick browse of her online store, I was hooked on her charming art prints of nursery rhymes. It’s such a simple idea, beautifully executed.
Classics like Incy Wincy and This Little Piggy are craftily designed so the words create animal shapes. My favourite is Here a Moo, There a Moo with the Old MacDonald chorus spelt out in a series of cow motifs.
The prints come in A3 size and are available framed or unframed and in a choice of 5 colours to blend easily with any nursery or child’s bedroom. For every print sold, Tinker Tailor donates £1 to the National Literacy Trust, helping disadvantaged children get access to books of their own.
Tinker Tailor featured on my 10 Best Gifts for New Parents, one of my most popular posts for the Lazy Daisy web site.
Lydia’s prints make a fun introduction to poetry for little ones and a sweet, nostalgic trip for hip mamas and papas.
