How BlueRock Brought Poppyshop Toys & Gifts To Life

Lisa always knew she wanted to have her own toy shop. She just needed some help securing business finance to bring her ideas to life.

One day, Lisa Kelly had a light-bulb moment that would change her life forever. She realised that she could combine her creative spirit and love of children into something real and meaningful.

That day, Lisa knew that she was going to open her own toy store. A place where kids could come and discover the wonders of play, explore their creative sides, and spark their imaginations.

But achieving her dream was easier said than done, particularly in the face of Covid-19 and the restrictions that would follow. To make things even more challenging, the royal commission into banking and finance meant that regulations were totally up in the air!

Oh dear, there's nothing here. We aimed too high and fell short. We flew too close to the sun... Or this is a simple mistake and we just need to plug a few things back in or jiggle a few cords.
