Over the past few decades we have seen an obvious shift in the way shoppers buy products, many choosing to buy online with the simple click of a button, having it delivered direct to their door.
Online marketplaces are becoming quite the popular choice, providing a platform for independent sellers to reach a wider market, and buyers the ability to shop from an array of suppliers and brands all in one place.
Loubilou is one such marketplace which sells children's clothing, toys, and accessories from around the world.
The products seen on Loubilou will be hard to find on the high street or anywhere else for that matter.
Here are some of my top picks from Loubilou:
* Make Your Own Retro Doll Kit
The Tilda doll kit is designed by Jane in her studio in Devon in the UK, screen printed onto cotton fabric and full instructions provided.
* Big Ben Model Kit
Build your own Big Ben!! An easy to assemble foam-card model set, flat packed, with 13 pieces and instructions included

Loubiloo started its online life in the UK, has since launched in Australia, and is in the process of becoming a worldwide site.
