Hickory Dickory


  Now you might think that I am about to write a blog about the well known nursery rhyme, Hickory Dickory Dock The Mouse Ran Up The Clock, and you would be wrong.  Instead I wanted to start sharing with you a little about my suppliers and the reasons we have chosen to sell their products. I came across Hickory Dickory during an internet search for beautiful children’s personalised gifts when researching my decor category.  I immediately loved their range of personalised additions to the nursery.  These stunning gifts make great newborn gifts, Christening gifts, birthday or Christmas gifts, each personalised with a name and or date to make them extra special.  I was also drawn to the fact that none of the pieces are made using MDF, but are made with solid pine and birch ply wood.  Each piece is individually made in the UK so you know you are getting something truely unique! Hickory Dickory Clocks Every child’s room needs a personalised clock – whether it’s for Mum’s feeding in the middle of the night not sure when they got up and how long they have been feeding for, or for toddlers learning to tell the time! There is a beautiful range of girls and boys clocks available with Hickory Dickory and each can be individually designed so that you can incorporate a name and message or special date – perhaps the birth and weight for a newborn gift, or just a birth date for a special birthday present.  These magical clocks are a keepsake forever.  For girls choose between white and pink butterflies, or a gorgeous white heart clock.  For boys there is the white and blue star clock, a paper boat clock, the cream and blue rocket clock or the digger wall clock.  Little ones will love their new addition whatever the design! Hickory Dickory Door Plaques Little ones love to let you know which room is theirs, and it usual requires some sort of outward symbol to say as such. Specially designed children’s door plaques make lovely gifts again whether it be new baby gifts, Christening gifts, birthday presents or just as a finishing touch to the nursery.  Each of the Hickory Dickory handmade door plaques are made with care and attention to detail.  Just advise your childs name and choose your unique design.  Each door plaque is made from birch-plywood and are hung with a ribbon of raffia.  They measure approximately 8cm x 25cm.  Only water based glues and paint are used on the door plaques.  For the girls choose between cream and vanilla, pinks or lilac and white.  For the boys choose between red and blue, pale blue and vanilla and blue and white. Hickory Dickory Height Charts All children love to see how quickly they are growing and compare and compete with siblings!  Rather than use the traditional pencil scribblings lined up on the wall why not take a look at these fabulous height charts from Hickory Dickory, they are a great way to watch your little one grow.  Custard & Crumble love the fact that each motif has been individually cut, painted, decorated and applied to the height chart. Once again personalise your height chart with a name if you wish.  Each height chart measures a range from 35cm – 145cm (approx 12 years old).  Boys will love the paper boat height chart which has the matching clock, or why not choose between the rockets or sailing boats.  Little girls will love the ballet shoes height chart or the lilac butterflies! There are lots more designs available from Hickory Dickory so please keep a look out some more beautiful products will be on the website soon!
