Baby and Kids Flagship Store Opens in Mango Hill, Now Bigger and Better

A baby and kids boutique has recently opened its brand new (and much larger!) store in Mango Hill, with a kids’ play area and wider aisles for prams to make shopping more convenient for customers.



The twin sister tandem of Ashlea Soto and Lauren Rune has just opened their new Peppa Penny flagship store on 22 October 2022 on Mango Hill. The brand has evolved from a homewares and gift store to a baby and kids boutique during its five-year journey.

Before Ahslea and Lauren finished college with a business management degree, the pair honed their entrepreneurial skills at markets when they were still teenagers. They then explored the world of internet commerce, selling foil prints back in 2014. After three years, the twin sisters opened their first brick-and-mortar store, Peppa Penny, in March 2017.

For about two years, the store has been selling a range of homewares from leading brands including Axel & Ash, Zakkia, Olli Ella, and H&G Designs, along with vases, furniture pieces and other gift items with just a small dedicated space for the baby gift section.

At some point, they thought of closing the shop as it wasn’t doing well during its first couple of years but decided to rebrand it instead as a full-fledged baby and kids store since this section has been quite popular among its patrons. And it was then that things started to turn around.  

“Starting your own business is no joke! There is definitely a steep learning curve, it’s very true when people say you don’t make money for the first 2-3 years. But the journey has been so worth it and we still pinch ourselves that this month we will be moving to our new store that is TWICE as big so we can make Peppa Penny even more worth the visit for all our lovely customers..” – Peppa Penny

And today, the shop has grown bigger and better. Apart from baby and kids products, the new flagship store offers a kids’ play area to keep the little ones busy as you shop plus free gift wrapping and in-store events. The interior is fitted with wide aisles for prams so there’s plenty of space to move around.
