About Us

 

​​​​​​​We are Celebrations and Toys, a family ran, enthusiastic, traditional toy shop. We specialise in wooden and fabric toys. We have traded since 2006 initially direct sales and events like baby fairs, then traded online followed by a retail shop which  is based at Stonham Barns, near Stowmarket, Suffolk,  in the Heart of East Anglia.

We also sell locally at fairs, special events and private parties. However as word has spread and as we specialise in WOODEN TOYS being one of a few distributers we are now selling toys online nationwide and on special request around the Globe...


We also offer "party" events. Be it a coffee morning or an evening arrangement, where we can come to your group (either at home, hall or school etc.) and exhibit these lovely products.

Private shop viewing evenings are also available by prior arrangement.

Established in 2006 originally trading as Louise Chambers Cards and Crafts, the initial intention was to sell distinctive handmade cards, as the cards took off we decided to also offer gift wrap and gift bags to complete the special event. Following this we added children’s party gift bags for children’s parties made to suit a customer’s budget and age. With the supplier base in place for the party gift bags we soon decided to retail the toys at local events, finally specialising in quality wooden toys and now extending the service to offer online sales.

As of Summer 2007 we are now members of the FSB (Federation of Small Business)

2008 - Celebrations and toys started to communicate to customers using Facebook. we can be found at:

Spring 2009 we open our first retail store at Stonham Barns, by the end of that summer we extended the shop and in early 2010, moved to an adjacent retail outlet to allow us to display more of our toy range. Whilest continuing to promote the business through direct sales events like baby fairs and private parties.

In Spring 2010, we moved to a larger store at Stonham Barns to cater for the additional ranges we had to offer.

Summer 2010, we introduced Celebrations bears, a make a bear outlet within the shop, so you can pick, make and clothe your bear, we even offer bear building parties.

2012 - We became the first large scale make a bear retail outlet in Suffolk and in 2014 still have the largest selection of make a bear animals, outfits and accessories possibly in East Anglia!

Easter 2014 - We are celebrating our 5th anneversary at Stonham Barns, growing our range of toys and gifts along the way!

Winter 2015 - We moved again... to a larger shop with a dedicated Fairy room, bear making room and plush area.

2018 - The fairies are taking over... we now have one third of the shop dedicated to fairies, fairy garden and mystical accessories.
