The East Coast Group was established in 1960 in the UK manufacturing of plastics and expanded with application of their distinction in high quality plastics to baby changing mats and highchair insert cushions. In recent years they have acquired the licences of nursery favourites: Fisher-Price, Tiny Tatty Teddy and The Very Hungry Caterpillar; catapulting sales in these categories. The Company’s success led to the formation of the East Coast Nursery division, which still operates from the original site in Norfolk, UK and is managed by the same family.
The Company is also well known for its beautiful, high quality, modern nursery furniture that is produced from sustainably sourced timber. It offers a wholesome co-ordinating collection of cot beds, cots, cribs, dressers and wardrobes at a range of price points, colours and designs. Wholesaler, Baby Brands Direct appreciates the heritage and caring approach to product development and quality of the award-winning nursery brand; ensuring supply is readily accessible to approved retailers.

The Company boasts a series of nursery awards particularly for their highchairs and design features encouraging longevity of product use including dressers with removable changing frames so that they can be used once baby is out of nappy.
Baby Brands Direct wholesales and supplies the range of East Coast Nursery products directly to independent retailers and offers a drop ship service on the wooden furniture items. Phil Bosher, Account Development Manager at East Coast Nursery comments, ‘We have worked with Baby Brands Direct since 2008 and continue to strength our relationship in order to deliver the best service to our retailers in selling these quality products.’
According to researchers, these playthings have unique advantages over other toys because kids know that a plush puppy or a princess doll represents a living thing; they can relate and attach emotions to. Playing with these "friends" allows kids to explore their complex feelings. Stuffed animals also give 2- and 3-year-olds the chance to master people skills, improve their vocabulary, and much more.
Paediatrics strongly recommend fluffy toys for boys as toys flexes boys’ language, a recent growing trend that has been turning over quick sales in the plush toy market. Baby Brands Direct considers all these facts whenever we are updating our catalogue. Our clients are assured to quickly tap into the latest trends with up-to-date trendy toys.
