5 toys that your children won’t already have feat. Honeyjam

 

In the famous Portobello shopping borough among the subtly cool shops and vintage buildings- you will find the whimsical toy shop, Honeyjam. Named after owners, childhood friends and Mums to seven between them (Honey and Jasmine, Honey + Jam) Honeyjam specialises in selling a unique selection of toys that encourage children to find inspiration and learn through play.

Honeyjam’s stocklist takes children back to the days of traditional play with a range of classical yet modern toys. The toy categories, now few and far between in most big brand toy shops, include role play, dressing up, puzzles, a range of wooden toys and ekmPowershop’s personal favourite- toys to buy with ‘pocket money’.

 

“In the days of giant shopping malls full of only the same old high street brands it is so nice to be able to browse the market and find little gems…”

 

Exterior 2015

 

Honeyjam was born from the passion and common interest of two Mothers who noticed a huge gap in the market as they attempted to purchase the traditional toys that they played with as children. With some solid ground rules in place: Honeyjam became a hit with the vibrant Notting Hill shopping community.

 

“We won’t ever buy anything we don’t agree on and all decision have to be joint. When in doubt do with out”

Both the shop and Honey and Jasmine (who is a former model) themselves started to receive a lot of coverage from a long list of big names including The Independent and Hello Magazine as interest in the shop only continued to grow. Honeyjam even has some celebrity customers including Kate Moss who was photographed entering the store by  the Daily Mail a couple of years ago. However, when asked about this Honey and Jasmine were very keen to stress the importance of every single customer- not just the celebrities! Customer service is in fact very important to Honey and Jasmine who equate the success they’ve had to ensuring that customers buy the product that is most suitable for them.

 

“It’s such a great feeling when a customer comes back or emails to say ‘Thank-you, it was perfect!'”

 
Honey and Jasmine joined ekmPowershop a year ago and have brought a selection of the toys sold in their Portobello shop online. The selection of toys sets Honeyjam apart from most of the big name toy stores and really offers customers a reason to choose to shop with a small business:
