Minikin during the Covid 19 pandemic

Some changes to keep your Minikin experience fun, happy and safe...

During the COVID-19 outbreak we have had to dramatically change the business that we love. All sessions must now be booked through our website, this allows us to keep Minikin super safe for all of our guests. Please wash hands or sanitise hands on arrival and wear a face covering if moving around the shop or visiting the bathroom. Please cancel or reschedule your appointment if you display any symptoms on the lead up to your sessions.
If you require assistance to get baby hand and feet prints you must wear a face covering as will our staff. We cannot assist with prints where a face covering is not worn.
We are still bringing the Minikin experience to your home by bringing you Minikin at home kits. We have a selection of kits that can be brought back to be kiln fired and others that do not need to be brought back. They can be shipped UK and Ireland wide.
