Blabla Kids creates contemporary hand knit dolls, accessories and home décor for children. Designed by Florence Wetterwald and handmade by Peruvian artisans, their products are eco‐friendly, and made from natural fibers of exceptional quality, which makes them irresistibly soft and cuddly.
Blabla Kids was created in 2001 by Susan Pritchett and Florence Wetterwald, two good friends with the same philosophy of life and beauty.
While visiting Peru, they came across entire villages of expert knitters who had been keeping the tradition alive for generations. Inspired by their talent and touched by their gentle spirit, the two decided to start their own company of knitted products for children. They have now been collaborating with the same artisans for over a decade. The product range continues to grow and now includes soft dolls, rattles, finger puppets, mobiles, and a home décor line called Petit Home which includes crib bedding, sheets and blankets, pillows and play pads.
Joined by Florence’s husband, Joseph Strong, in 2003, the company has evolved into a close‐knit group of friends and family with a mission to continue to inspire joy and laughter. With a commitment to fair trade and keeping environmental awareness in mind, Susan, Florence, and Joseph feel very lucky to be able to bring a little bit of tenderness to so many children every day.
These high quality products are currently sold at their flagship store in Atlanta, GA as well as nearly 50 countries worldwide. The company continues to honor the ethical principle upon which it was founded, engaging in environmentally friendly fair trade practices and commissioning rigorous third party testing of all fabric dyes, stuffing and small parts.
The Random House Books for Young Readers imprint of Random House Children’s Books will publish an original board book series based on the property beginning in Fall 2016. The first two titles, Peekaboo Pierre and Sleepy Little Wooly, feature Blabla Kids characters and simple toddler concepts. Two more titles will follow in 2017.
Children worldwide love the animated shorts, created by the Blabla Kids team in their design studio! These shorts can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/album/2862112.
