A funny old day...

Good afternoon everyone!

Well it is turning out to be a funny old day here... My 'to do' list is bulging, but I really don't seem to be able to make any head way and so far nothing has been ticked off of it!

I have also been distracted at the slightest whim, although this was beneficial as I ended up unearthing a couple of books that were given to me by friends that I had completely forgotten that I had (the books NOT the friends LOL).  A great discovery admitted, but of course I then wasted time flicking through them when I should have been focused on other things!
It seems I have the attention span of a goldfish today...

But staying positive, IF I can manage to stay focused for the rest of the day, then with luck tomorrow we will be able to email out the latest edition of the PP newsletter... but then again.....!

Happy (distraction free) mini-ing!

And the winner is...?????

Good morning everyone!
When we launched our latest competition last week, here in the PP office we had NO IDEA how popular it would be and we have been inundated with entries ever since!

It also seems that the design of our new 1:48th '360' kit has also struck a cord with so many of our customers too. The names that have been submitted for this new kit were so creative and we really enjoyed deliberating them all...

However, there can only be one winner and following a (very difficult) process of elimination that ended up lasting well into the night, we are delighted to announce that our new kit has been named...*drum rolllllllll*
'Parsnip Cottage'
Here in PP HQ we all thought that this was a wonderful name for our Lincolnshire inspired cottage design (we are surrounded here by crop fields, especially leeks, carrots, parsnips and sugar beet.) and also it will fit perfectly with a brand new complimenting kit that will be launched very soon!

So our congratulations to
Vera Brierley for your winning entry and many thanks to everyone who entered the competition!

Happy mini-ing!

We are delighted to announce the forthcoming release of a brand new 1:48th '360 Premier Collection' kit, which will be launched at the 'City Of London Dolls House Festival' on the 2nd February 2014 !!! 

At this point we would normally give the name of the new kit... but this is where our new competition kicks in!

Our poor little 'cottage with no name' needs naming and we would like your help…

So if you would like a chance to win one of the very first 'currently un named cottage' kits to come off of the PP production line, all you have to do is come up with a suitable name for this traditional Lincolnshire cottage.

To enter our competition simply EMAIL us at with your suggested name(s). 
Please ensure that you add COMPETITION to the subject heading of the email or your entry will not count!
Please also note, entries MUST only be submitted by email to the email address above.

You can enter as many times as you like, however if a name is suggested in multiple entries we will only consider the FIRST entry of that name. So speed of entry is key!!!

The competition is now OPEN and will close at 12 noon (GMT) on Monday 27th January 2014.  The winner and winning name will be announced on Tuesday 28th January 2014.

Good luck  &  happy mini-ing!

Happy New Year !!!

With a brand new year just around the corner I thought I would end the 'old' year with a photo which for me personally celebrates 'new life' and 'new beginnings'...

As many of you know my Grandson entered the world back in February amidst much illness and drama for both him and his Mummy... but thankfully they are both now flourishing.

...And so with a very thankful and happy heart may I wish you all a very happy new year and I hope that 2014 brings you all good health, happiness and much laughter too x
