Bonjour! Have you ever wandered the old secret Belle Epoque passages of Paris where tiny toy stores sparkle in fairy lights and burst with beautiful classic toys? Or found yourself in a provincial rustique French cobble-stone village, peering into the window of a small boutique that makes you feel as if you’re in a beautiful dream? Little French Heart exists to offer you the kind of dreamy French nursery decor, toys, curios, vintage clothes and French vintage styled homewares that you would discover in these enchanting moments whether real or simply imagined.
At Little French Heart you will find amazing French and European gifts that capture the essence of childhood in its pure and lovely magic. Each gift has been carefully selected for its delightful blend of tradition and fantasy, art and imagination, and vintage style … elements that make up the precious memories of childhood and develop foundations for children to grow into creative adults.
The items are perfect for new arrivals, birthdays, baby showers, baptisms and other special events and just because. (Some items too, like the French decorative mobiles, bring joy and wonder to those who still dream of childhood 80 years on like our dear customers from nursing homes.) Our homewares have been chosen for their vintage, warm appeal that conjures a sense of family warmth and love. The young girls clothes, well, they are really the most beautiful items with handmade appeal this side of the Champs Elysees.
Reaching all parts of the globe, Little French Heart is based in Australia, and created by a Francophile Sydney Mum. Please contact me to ask any questions about our products or just to say ‘Bonjour’ [email protected] | m: 61 400 007 484
