Miann & Co (formerly La De Dah Kids) has successfully grown their range of well designed and ethically handmade children’s products, to limited edition lifestyle products for the whole family.
Reasons why Miann & Co loves TradeGecko:
TradeGecko saves Miann & Co half a day per week, since they no longer have to check orders before they go out.
TradeGecko keeps Miann & Co’s stock up to date, so their inventory is always accurate.
The TradeGecko platform integrates with various pieces of software, including Shopify and StarShipIT, to create a more seamless operating system.
Terry Meyer, director and co-founder of Miann & Co, started the business shortly after he and his wife, Rebecca, had their second child. Since their son suffered from allergies and eczema, they needed to find toys that were made using natural fibres, such as 100% cotton. When they realized the market didn’t have these readily available, Rebecca started designing children’s toys and the business idea took off.
Their original range of products started with 4 or 5 hand rattles and soft toys. After selling their handmade toys in a few markets, they received their first wholesale order. In 2016, La de dah kids have gone under a massive rebranding to operate as Miann & Co. and now offer limited edition heirloom products for the whole family.
The range grew from 50 SKUs to around 1,000 SKUs and now it would be impossible to manage it without an inventory management system.
