Belle & Boo: the perfect friends
Every parent wants to see their child happy and have a good set of friends to grow up with. Some have imaginary friends; some have the next door neighbours’ child as their buddy, but what about a pet as a pal? Let’s say a brown fluffy bunny?
Let us enter the world of a bob-haired little girl called Belle and her adorable bunny friend Boo. The two live in an enchanting world of innocence, warmth and adventure. Originally, Mandy Sutcliffe, the creator of Belle & Boo, began the tale of these two friends as nostalgic story book illustrations of children. The collection now contains gift items, books, framed artworks, stationery, home wares and a beautiful collection of girls’ clothing.
To keep your little girl warm and fashionable, take a look at this 100% lambswool Fly A Kite Cape. This snug little design is priced at £68 and ranges from 18 months to 6 years old. The perfect dress to wear underneath is this Windy Day Dress with Belle & Boo printed by the hem, and with beautiful embroidered leaves flying towards the sky.
Mandy studied illustration at Leeds Metropolitan University. While on a university exchange trip to France, her passion for illustrating children truly blossomed as she spent many an hour in the Parisian parks drawing the beautiful French children.
Belle & Boo also contains other characters such as Ava and Sophia and their adventures altogether, which can be seen here on this delightful biscuit tin. Fill it with cookies, treats or just bits and bobs to keep your child happy.
Or why not choose something from Belle & Boo’s interior range of items. Mix this enchanting lamp shade and cushion cover together and create the ideal Belle & Boo bedroom. Belle & Boo have collaborated together with a local Bristol designer to produce these wonderful creations.
After a full day of excitement, every child realises it is bedtime. “It’s also bedtime for Belle and Boo; time for their bath, time for their milk and cookies, and time for a tale to be told. ‘Goodnight Kiss’ is the second delightful picture book starring Belle and Boo. This 32-page story book in beautiful full colour follows their adventures as they explore the simple pleasures of childhood, thus drawing the reader into a magical world of imagination and discovery. ”
Mandy has very ingeniously and skilfully put this inseparable duo together, making Belle & Boo a must-have in every child’s life.
