Here at Toucan Kids we're really passionate about five key things:
Encourage outdoor play
Demand quality from our suppliers
Be stylish yet practical
Be aware of our environmental impact
Our products are hand selected to fit with these aims & objectives. Our toys for example, are mostly wooden, have an educational dimension and encourage active play, particularly outdoors. You’ll also notice that most of our products are environmentally friendly.
We hope you’ll love the clothes; we have lots of fun choosing them. We endeavour to pick unique products that have something extra special about them. Many of our brands use 100% organic cottons, some manufacture their products in the UK – a rare thing these days. We also stock some very special items of clothing which are handmade.
Lastly, we work hard to find local artisans who hand-make interesting gift products, such as personalised, illustrated wall art, solid silver christening cups and bangles to name a few.

The raw materials available within the whole area are exceptional – beef, lamb, bacon, pork and game in season; fish and shellfish; vegetables; and of course the famous Ayrshire ‘Tattie’.

The hotels and restaurants in the network have the award-winning skills to prepare these special raw materials into a menu of culinary delights – and serve them with knowledge, care, skill and attention.
You also have plenty of opportunity to take food home, by buying fresh produce at the weekly Farmers’ Markets ( Thistle Award Winner). You can visit network members who have farm shops or delicatessens specialising in local foods or by calling on one of the artisan food producers who are able to welcome visitors. Food "hampers "are also available.
