Alison started Little Tigers in 2001, when she had just had a baby and was pregnant with her second, and ran it until 2007. From then until early 2016, Dany and Tiffany owned and produced the magazine. In the spring of 2016, the business went full circle and passed back to Alison, who is now the owner and editor again; she continues to be supported by the magazine’s fantastic network of local suppliers, freelancers and distributors.

When Little Tigers was founded, there was very little information for local parents about things to do and places to go with babies and young children. Nowadays, the opposite is true – an online search produces too much information and it can be hard to sift through it, work out which bits are still in date, and find out what you really need to know. Little Tigers is here to help you make sense of it all … with independently researched and well-written articles and listings for local families with young children.
