Have you ever tried searching for the perfect kids toys and just can’t seem to find them? This frustration was part of the inspiration behind my latest Insta biz in the spotlight – Lucas Loves Cars! Helle Warming has created an amazing little world in Lucas Loves Cars (one my kids would never want to leave! 🙈). She’s gathered gathered an incredible range of high quality toys for car and truck lovers. Today we find about more about the amazing mum behind this business!
⚡️Helle, what are 5 things we might not know about you?
I have an Engineering degree, I have a son named Lucas, I don’t like coffee flavoured anything except coffee. I recently decided to go public that I hate champagne. I can’t count to 5.
⚡️How would you define your personal style?
Usually it’s whatever I can find which then means sometimes it feels like daggy Mummy style, other days I’m rocking it! (I think)
Minimalism if I could get rid of all the stuff!
⚡️ What is your inspiration, or what triggered this business idea for you?
I have a son named Lucas – who loves cars. That’s basically it. Couldn’t understand why there were no stores for boys toys. There are so many gorgeous quality gifts and toys out there for little boys, but never at the stores I went to. Oh, and I was sick of toys always breaking!
I now know Mums of girls who love trucks were also frustrated by the same issue.
⚡️ Helle, what do you love most about what you do?
Finding gorgeous products that I think the kids and mums will love. Then sending presents out to people! I feel like Santa.
⚡️What do you love to do with your son?
Well of course we play cars, we like to wash our cars, we make a car wash and they line up and stop for petrol too. Some days we play dinosaurs, making up fun stories and Roaring around the house. Outside we play cricket or footy.
⚡️What is your idea of an ideal day?
A productive day at work, then pick up Lucas, play and chat and then family dinner. Little things make me happy, like not having to cook and watching Lucas playing.
⚡️What’s a goal for your business in 2016?
I have a big project I’m not sharing, but on top of that I’m working hard on gathering more fabulous products (so exciting) and spreading the word about our online store, which means Instagram, photos and working with other awesome businesses.
⚡️Where can we find you?
Be sure to go have a browse online at Lucas Loves Cars, on the website or social media – you’re sure to find something you and your kids will love!
