Hi everyone. I'm a stay at home mum with an 8 month old and the idea of going back to work is unthinkable as well as unpractical so I've decided to finally start my own business. I would like to make baby toys, doll clothes, pincushions, scrapbook layouts/albums, burp cloths, etc but I'm not sure if there is a market for such items. I've made some surveys using Survey Monkey and I was hoping that some of you lovely mums could help me out and complete one or more of them for my market research. Each one takes about 5-10 minutes and are multiple choice with a couple of comment sections.
What about doll bedding? My DD went through a phase of putting everyone to bed, wrapping them up. She still does sometimes when she plays.
Doll clothing seems massively overpriced & not much choice on the high street.
If you can knit, another fab item for small children is a snood. I paid an eye-watering £28 for one this winter!!! The previous year I bought one for £18 from etsy but I left it on the bus and now the seller has shut down. It'd have to be well made though.
Thanks for your replies, I really appreciate it. I never thought about doll bedding before, it's something that wouldn't be too difficult to do. Unfortunately I can't knit very well only sewing and paper crafts. I tried knitting a scarf when I was younger and it ended up a different width from the starting size with multiple holes, so probably not a very good idea for me
Thank you to anyone that has taken any of the surveys, I really do appreciate it. The surveys are still available if you wanted to fill one out; probably wouldn't even take you a minute to complete. Thank you again, you're all stars
