- Seedlings toys are for developing full motor skills/ sensory and imaginative play to help young children and babies in reaching developmental milestones.
I had a baby girl during lockdown and my partner worked away. My parents live in Wales so weren’t allowed to visit. I believe the ladies at Seedlings saved my life. I was so low and so lonely, but they offered tea and toast and a friendship like no other. They never once made me feel like a nuisance or silly. They were all so lovely I will be forever grateful for the kindness shown to me and my baby during that time. I have since gone back to work and miss them all so very much but know that if I have another baby, it will be the first place I go.
