Hi I’m Hannah, Founder of Toddle and Mum of 2. I was in the RAF for 9 years and loved the travel and adventure. I then became a Mum in 2014 and couldn’t find products that would protect my son’s skin when he came on adventures with me. Specifically, his lips would get chapped from the cold air and his cheeks would get sore from the wind. So our dribbleproof® lip balm and Sun and Wind Balm were born!
You can see more of my personal story here on Woman’s Hour- Radio 4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p093hf53
Since making that lip balm in my kitchen in 2017…we have gone from strength to strength, I got 150k in our first investment round last year and we’re now stocked in 17 retailers including Friends of Joules.
Come and join our adventure 🙂
2017– Business plan is first written! Just a dream at this stage.
2018- Product design, brand design, testing and development, and starting the investment round.
2019– Secured 150k and used commercial labs and Glyndwr University to make our products truly innovative. Found UK suppliers for our ingredients and packaging. We buy every ingredient and formulate ourselves.
2020– Launch! We officially launched in March. Nothing like launching just before a global pandemic!
On Thursday the 3rd of March at 8PM, Toddle made an appearance on BBC1's Dragon's Den.
This was filmed in June, and as you can imagine, was a nightmare to keep quiet! I truly appreciate all of the support from everybody, as this would never have been possible without it!
Natural vegan children’s skincare is our passion, did you know their epidermis is 1/3 the thickness of an adult? Chemicals can also be absorbed more easily – so it’s crucially important we get it right. Some of our products have been 2 years in development to ensure we do!
We also love to be innovative and help parents at every turn, like our Toddle Toggle... You can clip this quickly and easily to your pram, or backpack, ensuring quick access wherever you are. Or our refills which are helping the planet and your wallet too.
