Something for the little people…Bumble & Mouse

Posted on: January 15th, 2014 by Carolyn No Comments

You can imagine my excitement (coming from South Africa and treasuring any opportunity to visit a game reserve) when I stumbled across this stall at the Ripe Foodie market one Friday morning…Bumble & Mouse.  Well, actually, it was my little niece of three who spotted it first.  Who could possibly walk past this unique brand of animal graphics without stopping and wanting to take one of the characters home.  With so many friends having babies soon I could think of nothing more delightful than a gift from Bumble & Mouse to help add the finishing touches to their nurseries, especially the personalised art prints announcing their babies` birth details.  It is extremely refreshing to have found products that are designed and created with so much thought, care and love, especially in a city which can sometimes become a little bit overwhelming with all its glitz and glamour (don`t get me wrong I love this city!).  With a wide variety of products, including clothing and home furnishings, you are sure to find something your little one will adore.   You can find the Bumble & Mouse girls every Friday at the Ripe Foodie Friday market in Safa Park between 9am – 2pm.  I look forward to sharing more from Bumble & Mouse soon…

What do you love about Dubai…
A friend once described Dubai as a kaleidoscope of attractions and it’s a fantastic description!
From the eclectic mix of people and cultures to the contrasting appeal of the desert calm and bright lights of the city, the very history of Dubai is an inspiration for all budding entrepreneurs to dream big and believe that aspirations can become reality!

Where’s your favourite place to go for a cup of tea…
For something that little bit different, try The Roseleaf Café in the Dubai Garden Centre, which offers arguably the best brewed coffee in town!
The Dubai Garden Centre hosts a Farmers market in conjunction with the Organic Foods and Café every Saturday between 9am-2pm, where you can always find the Bumble & Mouse girls!

What’s your favourite store in Dubai…
Nothing beats the thrill of finding a one-off gem at a bargain price and for that you have to head to Satwa, which has everything you are possibly looking for and the most exciting bit is finding out where to look!
If browsing is something you prefer doing from the comfort of your own home, the Little Majlis (www.littlemajlis.com) is an online market home to aspiring local designers, where you’ll be sure to pick-up a one-of-a kind piece.

If you could choose one item from your products what would it be…
It’s so difficult to choose between the individual animal & letter prints that we’d have to buy the full alphabet and hang them individually framed across the nursery wall.  As a collection, it has such a powerful visual impact and the vibrant colours and design ensure it stands apart from other brands!

What’s your favourite destination…
As the age old saying goes, there really is ‘no place like home’ and for the three of us, home is Scotland. Although our hearts and loyalties are split between the east and west coast, it’s a small enough country to cover both off in one day … just remember to pack your thermals!
