We are in love with BlaBla kids!

I had dreams when I was pregnant with Connor about having a nursery full of wonderful knit and "homemade" type whimsical stuffed animals all over the place. When I got around to buying everything I looked all over in the department stores to find something even remotely close, with no luck. I ended up getting a few regular stuffed animals and the effect was never what I was after.

When I first came across BlaBla Kids I was browsing through one of the online boutiques and I ended up stopping at this beautiful little black knit dog, who wound up being our now beloved Licorice. I knew even though we already had seven dogs in the house (real ones) it was really important we make room for one more!

My only regret is that we can't adopt them all... just look at these monkeys..
I mean who wouldn't want to bring one of these monkeys home!! Personally I am a huge fan of the green monkey in shorts, Verdi!

BlaBla Kids were founded by two best friends who met while attending Georgia Tech (Ladies after my own heart.. as I always dreamed of attending Georgia Tech!! lucky lucky girls!!). On a trip to Peru they found a village who made great had knitted finger puppets, and soon after they convinced them to make the very first items that would eventually make up the BlaBla Kids line!!

From Peru to your living room you certainly can pick out a BlaBlah item out of a crowd, the bright colors, great little details, and their super hug able nature makes them ideal for newborns to adults. Their knit animals leaves you with a bit of a sock monkey feeling without harming the socks!

Head on over to BlaBla Kids, there is something new to discover all the time!! While your there check out the mobiles!! I would have flipped to have gotten one of those at my baby shower!!

BlaBla Kids sent us over an Dalmation Hat to give away to one lucky winner. Its a size medium and is pretty stretchy, so it should fit most children between 18m and 4 yrs old.

I love the backpacks, so cute for a trip to grandmas or preschool.

My son would be the lucky winner of the hat if we were to win.

Thanks for the great giveaways! You always find the best new things.

I am in love with this store!!! There's so much I would get!! My favorite is the pink flower hat and booties, they are just too cute!!
If I win, I would give the hat to my baby girl, she loves dogs and she would look adorable. I'm sure I would get a million compliments. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Kara said...

Those are too adorable, I liked the garden dolls, but since my husband loves all things monkey and my daughter seems to prefer her monkey toys as well, I'd say the Mini-Mozart or Mini-Lolli would be our favorites!

Shelly said...

I love Peeko Boogaloo. I would give the hat to my daughter. Thanks!

Andrea said...

I really like the Little Monkey's Tee. If I won the hat I'd either keep it in hopes a future baby would be a boy, see if it looked good on Amelia, or I'd give it to one of the several mom's I know that are going to have babies in June. Probably the last! Cute stuff.

Naomi said...

Okay, I know I've told you that we're a cat family, but Jasper would look sooooo cute in the dalmatian hat! Oh, wait, the panda and the orange kitty hat are super cute, too. Rats. Roo has a Bla Bla hat I bought when she was an infant and she's still wearing it at 4. It doesn't look like they make the style anymore, though.

The finger puppets are probably the best way to get all the Bla Bla characters you covet at once... So adorable.

Allison said...

Go Jackets! (My husband graduated from GT).

I am loving the "Catch Me if you Can" mobile. J never really had a mobile, unless you count the one on the pack n' play, but I'd love to just hang this in his room anyway, even though he's way past the mobile stage. I think he'd like it.

P.S. I've linked to your blog on both my blogs. See my profile.

laura said...

I love the veggie and fruit rattle set! Great to use as rattles when the kiddos are little, then again can be used when playing 'shop'. The dolls, mobiles, hats, booties, boogaloos... they are all really great! And we would definitely keep the hat. Too cute.

What a fun store. Thanks for the review. laurachilton {at} hotmail {dot} com

I love the Boogaloos. Mr.X being my favorite of them all. If I won the hat I'd give it to my daughter (who would LOVE it).

Qtpies7 said...

I am so bummed that the Ladybug back pack is on back order! It is sooo cute! We call our 4yo "bug" and give her all sorts of ladybug things.

I would use the hat for my little man, Sam.

Seeryusfam@msn.com said...

I love the Giraffe backpack, but then I adore the Coco blanket as well. I just love all things knitted!

My little Pea would be the proud wearer of that cute hat!

stephiegal16 said...

I think that my favorite character is ROSALIE. I collect pigs so she pretty much tickles me pink.

I would give the hat to my son. He loves hats (and sunglasses but that's another story). I guess he just likes to accessorize and this would be a perfect addition for him.

stephiegal16 said...

I collect pigs so ROSALIE is my favorite character. I'm pretty much tickled pink with her. As for the hat, my son who has a bit of an accessory fetish would adore it. He is only 16 months but he is totally into hats (and sunglasses but that is another story).

Lucy said...

I love the bubbles kitty doll! So Such fun colors! I would give the hat to my niece, who is 2.5 and has a real live dalmatian!

I love the garden dolls, especially Buzz and Lulu. My Grannie used to call me lulu-bell.

I would give the hat to my precious nephew, Richard. He's 2 and learning who I am. I haven't been back to Alabama to visit family since Christmas, and I miss them all.

Hi! I heard about your site giveaway when researching blabla (mentioned to me by a Peruvian friend who lives in Florida). I have the cutest baby godson who would look adorable in the hat. I liked the monkeys on blabla's site and will probably buy one for my not-so-anymore baby sister.

Lilith Silvermane said...

I want the WhOLE set of birdie rattles. I'd actually hang a shelf just for them, so when the girls grow out of the rattles, they can keep them, for their own little ones!

And the hat, would be for my two daughters. They can share it as they grow older. But, I'd have to buy them a matching jacket :)

CRISTINA said...

I love Bla Bla Kids. Someone gave me a Hat and Bootie set at my baby shower for my daughter but when it was season for it, it did not fit her. I was so bummed out because there stuff is so adorable and great quality.

Having a hard time deciding what I would get. But here are some of my favs...

Coral, Lulu and Bubbles are so adorable and the backpacks are too much. I think I wouldgo for either the frog or the dalmation backback.

As for the hat. I would share with someone else. Spread the love so to speak. Pick someone I know and just suprise them.
