With the aim to reach as many families as possible, as well as lend some much-needed support to the local economy, Bonnie Bairn is putting the call out for Lothian-based baby businesses to come on board and try out a new framework that will enable digital visitors from even the most remote Scottish towns to attend on March 6 and 7. From kids-wear to bath toys, swimming lessons to tot safety; if you’re based in Scotland, Bonnie Bairn wants to welcome you to the digital fair family.

Bonnie Bairn founder Deby Rainnie said: “Our focus is to provide businesses with an affordable, interactive method of connecting with expectant and new parents, as well as established families in every part of Scotland.

“We aim to bring together a curated selection of the best independent parenting products and services that this country has to offer, promoting them with the message of #ShopLocal and support someone near you.

“While we appreciate that a virtual event cannot replace the social and interactive aspects of our fairs, or the opportunity of seeing products in real life, it will continue to be invaluable for expectant and new parents to discover and connect with businesses that can support them through this new stage of their life.

“We work hard to make sure that Bonnie Bairn not only benefits the local community, but also offers a welcoming atmosphere to those attending. Taking it online this year means that although we cannot always visit them in person, we are still able to support the incredible local talent in places such as the Lothian region. And now with packages available from just £35, we hope that big or small, new or established, retailers feel they can reach out and see what we have to offer them.”
