Soldiers and related - Please prioritise patterns featuring soldiers and grenadier guards (the red ones in London) and we can bulk out with military vehicles and other soldier-related paraphenalia

Child Interests

Oliver loves the colour blue, red or the colour orange but to be honest he is Happy with anything.

We use terms like heart warrior or our little solider which could be used?

He loved the Grenadier guards when we went to London and he also had all the cath kidston London solider print Pajama socks shirt and suit case for hospital when he went so this is why I have also put this design down as well as solider.


Oliver was born what we thought was a healthy little boy. At 9 days old at home he couldn't breathe properly and we rushed to A&E. Tonnes of tests and Drs and 2 days later we were told they found he had a heart condition. Mitral valve stenosis and mitral valve regurgitation as well as coarctation of the aorta.
Oliver had his first open heart at 18 months and an emergency 2nd op to save his life 2 days later. He is now fitted with a metallic valve. He is, however, starting to out grow his valve and is going to be needing more surgery in the near future, how near is uncertain but soon. What the future holds for Oliver I am unsure of as we've nearly lost him twice. He is still to face a minimum of 2 more open heart surgeries.
He battles on every day and for that reason we call him our little Solider.
That's why we have chosen a solider themed quilt.
