This is the story of two Nutbrown Hares, Big Nutbrown Hare and Little Nutbrown Hare; they are not defined as Father and Son in the original storybooks but are referred to as such in the narration for the animated television series. Little Nutbrown Hare asks Big Nutbrown Hare the titular question, "Guess how much I love you?", and the book continues as the two use larger and larger measures to quantify how much they love each other in answer to the question. A climax includes Big Nutbrown Hare’s touching declaration to Little Nutbrown Hare, ‘I love you right up to the moon – and back.’ The story is simple, but effectively shows the love the two share for each other.

Gyms, Tummy Time and Playmats step in when parents need to rest and baby needs to be entertained. Of all the myriad potential purchases that a new parent can make, a good play mat or activity gym is among the most likely to earn its keep. A safe, comfortable and stimulating place where the infant is happy to lie, and later sit, is likely to prove invaluable.

A recent growth in purchasing large playmats has been observed as tummy time can help babies develop strong head, neck and shoulder muscles and promote certain motor skills. Tummy time can also prevent the back of baby's head from becoming flat. Research also suggests that babies who spend time on their tummies crawl on their stomachs earlier than do babies who do not practice tummy time. With all this essential information is no wonder that sales keep rising. Browse the following pages to uncover more benefits of our baby products that will boost your trade too.
