We are from The North. Not sure how relevant that is, but being brought up in Sheffield on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District did mean that my sister and I spent much of our childhood holidays having fun in the great outdoors…and here, rather embarrassingly is proof!
Some people say, “it’s grim up North”, but we disagree (although it does rain a lot) and with the countryside on our doorstep the opportunities for us as kids were endless. Although taking very different career paths, my sister and I never forgot our childhood and always believed that having fun through sport or activities was a good thing. We also believe that you’re never too young (or too old) to start to enjoy the great outdoors, or learn to swim, or kick a ball around as long as it’s always fun! This ethos is what kick-started us into Sportbaby and it’s what continues to drive us today.
Luckily, Jo has spent the last 15+ years working in the sports/health industry and has a wealth of product experience in these fields. She uses this to buy in to Sportbaby, only the best products from a range of price points and brands. All of our products are either official licensed or branded sports wear.
We never compromise on safety or quality, so all our products are tested to the required safety standards and are from reputable brands. The other thing we don’t compromise on is customer service. It’s where, as a small company, we can be different and to us it’s simple, we just treat our customers as we would expect to be treated ourselves (and our standards are high).
So that’s us in a nutshell. We are a young (at heart), family-run business. We have started small but are thinking big and have many plans for the future. We want you to be a part of this and welcome any feedback or comments you may have to help us on our way.
Welcome to Sportbaby. Julie x
