My name is Helen Chapman and a warm welcome to our “dotty fish” website. As a mum of two I know only too well how hard it is to find baby shoes that look good but more importantly are practical, stay on and reasonably priced too! We have tried and hopefully succeeded in creating a range of baby shoes that are stylish and affordable.
It all started in January of 2006, when my son Joshua, was not yet one, and he was given a gift of a pair of baby shoes that were very expensive. I wanted to purchase some more but I couldn’t find anything at a reasonable price. I decided to do some research to see if I could come up with a more affordable shoe. This developed into “ShimmyShoes”, my first range of baby shoes. They proved very popular and went from strength to strength. I decided in July 2009, with things tough for everyone, to introduce a recession friendly shoe, and the “My Twinkle Toe” range was introduced along with a new website.
“My Twinkle Toes” was featured as a successful on-line business and was shown as part of the ITV Programme “Tonight”. You can see a recording of the show below.
We have carried on expanding, introducing more and more designs and all at affordable prices so there is something for everyone!
We are constantly adding new lines to the collection and as we now do more than soft leather baby shoes we decided to re-brand and we have now become “dottyfish leather baby shoes + bibs + bobs”. We hope to continue to offer all you parents out there, affordable, fun and stylish items to suit your little ones!
We hope you find the site easy to use and if you have any suggestions on future designs or you have any requests please use our “contact us” form. We’d love to hear about any new ideas!
“My Twinkle Toes” was featured as a successful on-line business and was shown as part of the ITV Programme “Tonight”. Very exciting!!
How things have changed since then!
