Yes, like many other baby-related businesses, Fiesta Tots was started by a parent. I have three children and experience all the ups and downs that parenting brings. But, of course, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I love to travel and just because my husband and I are now parents doesn’t mean we can’t still indulge in it. Plus, travel is such a great experience for kids of all ages. The same goes for days out – these should be fun and most definitely as easy as possible on parents; hence clever ideas that save time, or even space in the change bag! As a family, we love our days out and travelling to new places. It’s the perfect way to let off steam and spend quality time together without the stresses of home life and the distractions of the TV & computers.
I wanted to bring together some of my loves; my children, travel, family days out and of course shopping for clever ideas that save me time, space & weight.
So, this brings me onto one of the reasons for Fiesta Tots. I’ve been to many outdoor events advertised as 'family friendly'. Then, when you are there you realise that there are few (if any) places to purchase forgotten infant and child paraphernalia. And so the Fiesta Tots dream was born: to make available baby and young child essentials at events such as air shows and festivals. In addition, I want to enable everyone to find useful products before they go on their travels.
Like all good ideas and businesses, Fiesta Tots came from my experiences; of days out, but also from travelling professionally. Having flown as Cabin Crew all round Europe and the world during my 20s, I’ve seen many good and bad ways of travelling with children. I then worked on the ground in the terminal, adding to my experiences. As a parent I have dealt with planes, trains and automobiles, plus ferries. 'Posh' Hotels, basic digs, road trips or camping:- all are possible and all can be fun with a little planning. I hope over time to put as many of my experiences (both good and bad, may I add) on the website. I would also love to hear my fellow travellers' experiences.
In the mean time, please enjoy looking through the collection of products I have put together and let me know if there is anything you want me to search out for you
Regards and Bon Voyage,
