My name is Raga and I am a mum of 3, eight months ago I launched MiniXplorers a brand new online Marketplace/Directory of British Made Children's products and brands.
It has been a success with over 50 brands and over 500 products now on board our platform.
I would to find out what you guys think about the website and our concept. I would also would love some advice on securing investment or whether a business partner is the way to go in order to expand the business.
Thank you I look forward to your thoughts.....

You can also add a stall to our Virtual Christmas Market if you'd like, do take a look at the other stalls from the community too.
So busines funding, have you had any before? Our pioneers may be able to offer some helpful suggestions and ideas.

Oh my word, if my kids were younger I may as well hand over my monthly bank balance. (or my wife would)
What a fantastic site and I love the brand stores. What an excellent way to provide each brand with their own store.
If I had one minor criticism it would be the layout of the site. The brand stores are very neat and aligned but the left hand menu is very tight against the border which can distract from the look and feel. The same with the shop collections, which seem to be different sizes and on differing levels.
Nothing says professional like precision and attention to detail
That being said those are the only issues and I am extremely thankful that my children are well into their teens and beyond.
I now know where I will be shopping for nieces and nephews in future.

Thank you so much for your great feedback, I’m actually aware of the layout and currently working on updating the website and refreshing the look and upgrading the features of the marketplace.
Having said this your your feedback and message actually made my day as that’s the kind of reaction I wanted when I first set up this business and designed the website and came up with the concept.
Thank you so much and please help spread the word to anyone you know that have small Children.
Have a great weekend.
