Autumn Update 2019

Plenty has changed at Brodali, as we head into our busiest part of the year here is some of what has happened with us

  • We have moved office! We can now be found at 110 Adrien-Robert, Gatineau. 5 minutes from our old office, we now have more space, more parking and we are on the ground floor so nobody has to worry about getting strollers or wheelchairs in to see us anymore. Come see us if you wish.

 

  • Llamas have arrived! Our first original plush is now in stock and is so far very popular. Thank you to everyone that has ordered so far, we only had a few boxes shipped by air to fulfill orders, the rest of the first batch will arrive by sea in a few weeks. Order soon if you want to avoid delays on Llamas
  • You can probably guess this is when most people order Christmas Stockings. Our stockings are a high-quality plush fabric that has a zipper all the way down. This allows us to embroider but it also lets you cram in a few more gifts if your stockings are bulging this year. Most people order stockings with first names, if you want a special design on a stocking, let us know on the product page and we will arrange it.
  • Many of you are purchasing bundles of items. This saves you money by buying more and gives great ideas for matching items. More bundles will be coming, if you have an idea for a bundle let us know on social media!
  • Currently, we are shipping orders out within one week, in the run-up to Christmas, this delay has to go up due to the huge increase in demand, thank you for your understanding and patience in receiving your orders. Our guarantee this year is ordered by November 30th and you will receive your order before Christmas.

That is it for now, lots of new changes and we couldn't be more excited for our busy season to start!

How a teddy can be a part of his life

How a teddy can be a part of his life

Your little one is growing so fast. Take the time to live every step of his life with him and his Brodali friend.

We can be there right from his birth to quickly become a reassuring and recognized element of his decor and world. There to help discover textures thanks to the fur softer than clouds, little or large ears and perfect arms for cuddles and peek-a-boos. A stimulating friend with colours and softness as well as a welcome distraction during tummy-time.

Tell funny stories to your child about his friend. Brodali teddies all have a distinct personality that can help you make choices about the stories, but they can be personalized so your child can identify himself better to the friend. Our elephants like to fly around with their large ears when they have a friend to adventure with, but can also hide behind them if their friend is very timid.

Whenever your child reaches the age of 2-3, the imaginary world has an important place in their development. Pretend and role play, invent stories and new names with his teddy and him. Manipulating teddies to dress them up or give them a cuppa tea will also help with their motor skills.

His friend can also reassure him in difficult moments that can be hard to understand. Talking in his own words to his stuffie, attributing emotions or behaviour that he doesn't understand or know how to manage can be beneficial and will help them understand the world better.

When he'll be older, moments shared with you and his Brodali teddy will be precious and funny souvenirs to talk about together. He might even have been involved in completing the history and personality of his friend.

Le toutou à l’âge de l’angoisse de séparation

Le toutou à l’âge de l’angoisse de séparation

Le toutou préféré de votre petit est spécial. Il l’accompagne dans sa vie quotidienne depuis plusieurs mois.  Il joue avec, le modille et rit en le voyant.

Puis, bébé vieillit et a maintenant 6-8 mois. C’est la période de l’angoisse de séparation qui commence. Bébé ne comprend pas encore la notion de permanence de l’objet. Si vous êtes hors du champ de vision, vous êtes partis pour toujours. Cette angoisse peut durer jusqu’à ses 18 mois.

Bébé ne veut plus se faire prendre par un inconnu, pleure quand vous êtes hors de son champ de vision.

Comment aider?

Parlez à votre petit pour lui dire que vous reviendrez.

Jouez à cacher coucou (les oreilles du lapin gris sont parfaites pour jouer à ce jeu) pour rendre la séparation courte un jeu.

Donnez-lui son toutou pendant des courtes absences. L’odeur lui est familière et ce sera sa source de réconfort en votre absence.  Ce toutou peut être son point de repère lorsque vous ne pouvez pas être présent.

 

N’oubliez pas, tout est une phase temporaire, même l’angoisse de séparation.
