A Honey of a Bunch


We were intrigued when we heard that one of our long-time fave online shopping destinations Honeybunch was setting up shop offline, and even more so when we heard the tagline ’beautiful and useful things for kids’, so we figured it was bound to be a worthwhile destination.
When we arrived in Etobicoke to check it out, our first impressions of the bright yellow and white awning outside and the soothing apple-green walls inside definitely did not disappoint.

But when we got the guided tour from shopkeeper Nicole Morell of the birthday section, we were hooked. Lovely felt birthday wishes banners ($26.95), crowns (Why not make the birthday boy king for the day?) and party hats ($4.95–5.95) make gorgeous reusable party decorations. Tuck a cookie or a lollipop into a felt flower bag ($6.95) and you’ve got a ready-to-go lootbag any little girl would love, no plastic, no landfill. In the corner, we found shelves stocked full of great birthday presents, not your usual run of the mill, all priced at $15.95. We stocked up for a season’s worth of birthday parties with the Cagola balancing game (it’s a pirate ship made of bamboo), the eeBoo Time Telling game and the eeBoo Paper Doll game (again no plastic in sight).
