If you have to buy a small child a present for Christmas take a gentle stroll down to Niddle Noddle in Crouch End. It is sheer bliss to be greeted by friendly staff and a range of stock which aims to be a little bit unusual. Eilidh Scot and Katrine Dane are both mothers with young children and started the online business to fill a gap in the market for something more original for children. We are lucky to have their bricks and mortar shop in our patch so we can have a look, feel and smell before we buy. If you have children with you they will be amused by the play area at the back while you browse.
