Countdown to the best Bubble yet!

The winter sun has been shining down on The Business Design Centre today as the coolest brands in the kids industry set up for Bubble London, which opens tomorrow!

Everything's been running pretty smoothly today, with the only arguments being over which CD we're going to be playing tomorrow morning as our buyers walk through the doors. We still haven't decided, but one thing we do know is that just like the show it's going to be fresh, upbeat and fun!

Don't forget Bubble London opens tomorrow at 9.30am!
