The Friday Highlight

Today's Highlight goes to.....

Blabla Kids

After an inspiring trip to Peru for the owners of this adorable children's company, Blabla Kids started in 2001 as a small company that made simple sweaters and hats that were created using the same techniques as local artisans discovered on their trip. The popularity of these handmade items skyrocketed quickly and Blabla is now producing not only the same sweaters and hats that garnered their initial following but also adorable dolls, blankets, finger puppets, rattles and mobiles.

When the Little Man was first born we were the lucky recipients of a beautiful hooded blanket from a lovely generous friend (thanks Elise!) and it was love at first sight. The yarns they use to make their products are of the softest quality and come in the sweetest of colors. If their pieces don't charm you then nothing will. Blabla now works with the same local artisans that first inspired them, to help them craft these adorable pieces and did I mention that they support Fair Trade efforts? It's pretty much a hole in one for any modern, socially conscious mom.

Next time you're looking for a special little gift for a friend who's expecting that won't get lost in the sea of onesie's and burp cloths, a bday gift for a special little one or simply a treat for your own little peanut, I encourage you to check them out.
