blabla: Neat knits for your kid to love

By New CBB Reviewer: Jen W.

I stocked up on way too many knitting materials when I was pregnant. Yes,I was under the very mistaken impression that I’d have the time to createbooties, hats, mittens and stuffed animals for my baby girl while shewould stare in wild wonder at her Symphony in Motion mobile for hours onend. Well, nothing against that truly fabulous mobile, but it only buys meabout 7.5 minutes of freedom. I barely have time to bathe, never mind knit.

BlablaluludollThankfully, there’s a company called blabla that has already madeeverything I could have hoped to create myself. My daughter has fallen inlove with Lulu the Garden Doll, a very silly 24-inch tall colorfulcreation that looks like it could have been knit by a very cool grandma — or at least very close to that. Like all of blabla’s beautiful products, Lulu was hand-made by agroup of artisan women in a Peruvian village that owner FlorenceWetterwald and Susan Pritchett visited on a trip to the country in 2001.At $42, blabla’s dolls aren’t the cheapest toys you can buy for yourlittle one, but it’s guaranteed that she or he will drool over it. And onit, of course, but no worries, the dolls are all machine washable.

You could and would expect such a fabulous line to have a celeb following and they do! Gwyneth Paltrow, Heidi Klum, Tori Spelling, and Adam Sandler are all blabla fans.

Get blabla dolls at local baby boutiques or from the blabla website.

Bronwyn’s Note:
I, too, am a HUGE blabla fan. We have Leopold (the lion) and he’s just so cute and cuddly. The products are VERY well made and I was not disappointed by the money I spent to get one.

I am a 37 year old little girl. ;) I just ordered Sandwich the Cat (Large) for myself. I can’t have children of my own (other than three very spoiled cats) and likely won’t adopt or otherwise due to health problems, but my husband and I spoil ourselves in lieu of the children we don’t have.

PS. Don’t worry, we aren’t totally vain. We have two God sons whom we spoil and love tremendously!

Mom Said It

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
