Hello, I’m Joanne, owner of Retro Kids and mum to two little girls Erin and Florence.

Retro Kids launched in April 2014 and is an independent shop born out of my love of all things retro, colourful and a little bit of kitsch and kawaii!  What you will receive is a professional personal service with fast response and shipping with devoted customer care and gorgeously wrapped goodies to your door.

All products have been especially handpicked from very talented independent artists and established design-led brands and some smaller brands trying to break out into the market, all of which I am proud to promote and sell.  It was important to me that all the products chosen were ethically produced and of outstanding quality too.

I choose items that I love and hope that you will love them too.  I don’t stock anything that I wouldn’t be happy to have for my own children or give as presents to family or friends.

The products make a refreshing change from the ubiquitous children’s TV characters and short-lived fads. If you love retro, kitsch and kawaii and you are after something that will stand the test of time, please take a look through my shop to see the gorgeous products available.

If you want to get in touch, recommend products you think should be stocked, give some feedback or just say hi, I would love to hear from you!  Please email hello@retrokids.com.

I hope you enjoy looking!
