Discover Kate's Toy and Linen Recommendations

Have you ever wondered which products the staff here at Boswells would personally recommend? Kate has shared some of her favourite ranges with us, which she's discovered over the past year of working in our Toy and Linen Departments. 

 

Schleich Model Animals

Schleich ImagesThe range of Schleich animals at Boswells has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Here is a collage showing the beautiful detail given to both ancient and modern animals. The dinosaur collection is particularly impressive because their jaws can open and shut! Schleich models are hand-painted and attention is given to creating as realistic a representation of each animal as possible. The Schleich range includes domestic pets, farm animals, birds and dinosaurs and wild animals from around the world.

Get Knitting!

Wool ImageOn the occasions when I work in the Linens Department I spend many happy hours choosing from the wide range of wools that form part of the haberdashery on offer at Boswells. I have gradually stock-piled balls of wool in a huge variety of colours, textures and blends, and my family are beginning to enjoy wearing my knitted scarves. I’ve bought craft books stocked at Boswells and refreshed my memory for different stitch combinations, and so have been able to add extra textures and patterns to my knitting. There’s nothing nicer than sitting in front of a fire as the nights draw in, watching a bit of telly and knitting a special scarf to keep you or someone you love warm!
