Posie & Bear was set up in February 2017 to create beautifully designed & practical solutions for modern parents. Here’s how it all began…
Owner and inventor Charlotte encountered numerous challenges whilst on maternity leave with her first children, twins Rosie and Teddy.
‘As any busy mum knows there are lots of challenges every day. I was really pleased to find some useful and clever products that helped me get though the day. I like to be organised and efficient anyway, but now as I had two babies to care for it was even more important to me and my family. Where there were no solutions, I wasn’t really happy just muddling through, so I started trying to solve the problems myself. I’m used to troubleshooting and managing projects in my role as a Producer in adverting agencies so I just thought I’d use just those skills in a different arena.‘
And that was the start of Charlotte’s adventure…
Her invention TinyTimer was shortlisted for the BPA concept and innovation awards 2017. This prompted her to set up Posie & Bear Ltd – named after her twins who had been her source of inspiration. The BPA awarded Posie &Bear a stand at the Harrogate Nursery Fair, which was a great way to introduce TinyTimer as a concept as well as showcasing another product.
With the arrival of new boy Zac and the twins getting older, louder, faster….the family faced new and exciting challenges.
‘It’s a very busy time for us, but I’m embracing it! Everyday there is a new challenge and a new insight‘
‘For me, maintaining a sense of who you are and having a home that reflects your tastes as well as keeping your children safe in a ‘baby-proof’ environment is tricky. I intend to tackle this head on in 2018’
And so the journey continues in 2018 with some new and innovative product designs already underway.
