Blabla Dolls

The other day I was shopping in my doctor's boutique, Babies by the Sea, when I fell in love with this line of very soft handknit dolls. Much to my hubbie’s dismay, I pretty much want to buy every single animal in the collection.

Blabla Kids started in 2001 when long time friends Susan Pritchett and Florence Wetterwald went to Peru and discovered entire villages of expert knitters who had been keeping their traditions alive for generations. The ladies were so inspired by their talent, they commissioned the artisans to create their own line of knitted products for children.

Many of the products in their collection are under $40, and you can feel good because your money is supporting a business with a heart.

"Blabla Kids has built a relationship with their artisans based on mutual friendship, loyalty and respect. Blabla takes pride in their fair trade ethics and genuine commitments."

Cute, kind, and affordable? Loving it. 

Blabla Kids also includes mobiles, hats, and backpacks. All orders above $50 at online boutique Layla Grace ship free.

  1. I love Blabla dolls! Peruvian(and other Latin American) crafts are just entirely incredible. But these dolls are especially endearing. Kate Spade carried them for a bit when they had a short-lived children's section.
    Also! Thank you for my mantra of the day: 'Gratitude turns what we have into enough'. Thank you!

  2. I know what you mean when you said that you want to buy every single animal in the collection. They are just so lovely and are great for all ages. They are all one piece with no removable parts and soft enough for a baby to cuddle.
