Last night I went to dinner with Ionela and Ben from Tiny Me and a few other lovely bloggers.
Tiny Me sell personalised items like name labels, lunch bags, wooden puzzles, wall decoration stickers, and calendars.
The idea is you make a “Tiny Me” or computerised avatar of your child, then use this image on your personal items. You choose either an avatar or a theme like cars or wildlife, then colour options and the total combinations possible comes to millions according to Ben. I’ve not counted, but just bags have 11 styles, several fabric colours, thousands of possible avatars, or quite a few themes instead, and then you can still add any name, and change the background colours in the logo. My head hurts trying to guess wether the exact same combinations have ever been ordered by separate costumers.
I really liked the products, and their staff and their style. Ben is one of the bosses but he’s down to earth, and not at all board-room-scary!
Then of course there was lovely lovely food.
Ionela insisted, in a nice way, I should have grown up looking drinks. “Have a mocktail Julie”. As the evenings menu had been shown to us before the event I had informed Ionela of my annoying alcohol allergy. I had asked for a cuppa and it came in many pots and was jolly nice, then I mentioned that normally when eating “out” my only options are J2O or coke which makes me feel childish. That a cuppa was a good alternative for me.
Ionela’s choice was mightily grown up, and I appreciated that a lot that she was that thoughtful. Made me feel right at home.
Thank you for a lovely meal, and pleasant company.
Disclosure: Tiny Me paid for dinner. I’m not obliged to write this, I just want to. I paid for my own travel and hotel.
