A little bit about us
Welcome to Ottie and the Bea
We are a modern children’s shop in Blackheath South East London. We believe playing and having fun is a very serious matter... no matter what age you are.

About Ottie and the Bea
Once upon a time, there were three of us, Julia, Peter and Beatrix. We lived, laughed and played alot. The years went by and one magical starry night along came Ottie. Which is how the story of Ottie and the Bea begins…As Ottie and the Bea came into being we envisaged a space that was magical.
