little active people

Hi, we’re Jemma & Gill, two mums to five little active people who love nothing more than discovering new and brilliant products to help support busy families.

We created Little Active People as an answer to the modern day pressures on children and for parents keen to keep little minds and bodies active, no matter what the weather.

After years in retail and travel, we want Little Active People to be a one stop shop for Clothing & Footwear, Indoor and Outdoor Activities, Travel Essentials and Gifts, plus some well-deserved treats for grown-ups too.

 

We pride ourselves on finding clever, inspirational and good value products for active families, so whether you have a product you want to buy or sell, get in touch, we’d love to chat!
