About Us

Welcome to Ottie and the Bea - purveyors of playfulness and creativity! We are an independent children's shop, first established in Blackheath, South East London, in 2010 . The shop was established by Julia and is named after her two daughters. Ottie and the Bea offers a curated selection of toys, books, gifts, party supplies and tableware - all of which is hand selected by Julia. Everything in the shop is centred around Julia's passion for imaginative play, creativity and stories all of which she believes are key to childhood.
We are very proud to have been awarded a Love London Time Out Award in both 2015 and 2016. And we are proud holders of a good practice award from 'Let Toys Be Toys' which we have held from 2016 to date! At the start of 2018 Ottie and the Bea was awarded the Independent Retailer Award at the inaugural Royal Greenwich Business Awards.
 We have now moved Ottie and the Bea to Framlingham in Suffolk. Do come and visit! x
