Our 4 Core Beliefs
nordicstork believes in many things but is essentially founded on four core beliefs. They underpin everything we do. From how we source our products, to how we communicate with our customers. We are proud to be a 'people first' company.
1. People, Planet and Profit
We believe that it is possible to have a profitable, successful business and help people and the planet at the same time. That is why we have partnered with various children's charities. Every purchase you make on our site, helps another baby, child or family somewhere else.
We also aren't greedy and we care about each of our individual customers. We know that wooden, natural and scandi-style toys are expensive (albeit for good reason). And so we price-match. We want you to be able to afford to buy better quality toys for your little one or a gorgeous gift for a friend's new bundle.
2. Fewer Toys = Better Play
We believe in quality over quantity. We think that children can sometimes end up with too many toys and therefore find it difficult to play effectively or develop through play. We think it's better for children to actually enjoy fewer, but better quality toys than lose interest in play because they have too much of what they don't need or enjoy
3. Encourage thoughtful gift-giving
As parents, we have experienced the awkwardness of having received untold amounts of flashing, plastic gifts that we know our children will not engage with. That is why we believe in asking the receiver what gift they may like for their little one, rather than assuming. It may not be 'very British' to do so, but if you don't ask you don't get. We aim to make this far less painful for parents through the design of our site - but one step at a time for us!
4. Support emotional wellbeing in children
Now more than ever is the time to think about the emotional wellbeing of our children. That is why we have a selection of books and toys to help your little ones to think about how they are feeling. It's tough being little, never-mind during a world pandemic. Let's be kind and thoughtful and do what we can to offer as much support as possible.
