Giveaway: Blabla Kids Hand Knitted Hat and Booties Set


Blabla started in 2001, when Susan Pritchett and Florence Wetterwald, two long time friends, went to Peru. They stumbled upon entire villages of expert knitters whose talent inspired them to create their own kids line. All Blabla products are made in Peru, hand-knitted or hand-loomed.

Florence Wetterwald, co-founder of Blabla Kids:

"Knitting in Peru is a way of life, they have done it for years so men and women actually knit. In general the men do the the hand-machine knitting because it takes more strength to push the loom back and forth. The women do the hand knitting and the embroidery. The people with whom we work, either work at home or in coops. The coops we collaborate with are catholic coops. A couple of women are responsible for organizing the knitting, ordering the thread and distributing the work amongst a hundred women. So they really appreciate the regular work that we have been provided for them in the last 5 years. Also we can be very proud of our ethics,they fix their prices and most of the time we agree, unless the market just can't bear it. We pay 50% upfront and our margins are very low, but at least we are sharing .... We also work with a couple of larger companies that basically do the same thing but on a larger scale."

MOBILES



The charming "Farm" mobile has farm animals including pig, bunny, cow all with angel wings. The whimsical "Catch me" mobile has girl chasing dog chasing cat chasing birdie.



RATTLES

Veggie rattles include carrot, radish, cabbage, tomato, pea. Perfect for little ones to learn what's good for them to eat...blabla rattles are irresistibly soft and sweet, perfect for little hands. The Orange cat rattle has a fish in hand, the giraffe rattle has a birdie on his back...

Blabla Kids offers beautifully designed, high quality hand knitted items for babies and children which are bursting with vibrant colors.

These workers are treated fairly and earn a good wage, which enables them to improve their quality of lives. Customers can feel good purchasing products which are empowering the lives of others.

The Blabla Collection includes Rattles, Mobiles, Blankets, Hats and Booties, Finger Puppets, Clothing, Backpacks and Banks and Pillow Chums in beautiful styles for boys and girls. There is something for everyone!

The Farm and Catch Me Mobile are particularly special because the animals face downwards towards baby, giving baby lots to see!

I know that celebrities go crazy for Blabla Kids products. What I didn't know is that they are hand made in Peru and that the company helps to empower workers and pay them fairly. Thank you for giving us substance. Success Through Play is a quality read!

How adorable are these mobiles. I am pleased to learn that the details of the mobiles can be seen from below. I have noticed that most mobiles are designed to be seen from the top and not the bottom.
