Giveaway and Guest Blog – BlaBla Kids


Blabla Kids was born from the long time friendship of Florence Wetterland and Susan Pritchett, an inspiring trip to Peru and the talent and gentleness of a village of Peruvian knitters who had kept the tradition alive for generations. Using only natural fibers of exceptional quality grown in Peru, Blabla Kids relies on the ancestral knowledge of the knitters to craft their vibrant and whimsical knit products for children. The resulting colorful collection of dolls, dream rings, backpacks and more reflect the vibrant inner life of a child. Florence, the designer, gives us a peek at the world of Blabla in her search for beauty, authenticity and laughter.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Children books, voyages, memories, the little nothings of everyday life.

Do you have a favorite design related blog that you enjoy or are inspired by?
Studio Violet, they make my heart beat faster.

What new characters and product features can we look forward to seeing from Blabla Kids in the future?
For Fall, Lucky Black Cool Cats, Classy Bears, one named after French composer Berlioz, a couple of loving rockers, a lady fox named Suzette (like the crêpes) and a collection of cards and note books featuring the dolls.

We are also working on exciting children’s storybooks, but it is a long project…

Tell us about Blabla’s philosophy on social responsibility.
Our company prides itself on our relationship with our artisans and the environment… a relationship that is based on mutual friendship, loyalty and respect which has created a better world for all of us. We are certified fair trade by the F.L.O. Organization and everything we do is handmade from natural fiber which keeps us very green.

Let’s get to know Florence a little better with a quick-fire round:

  • Blogs I frequent are: Tas-ka, Poppytalk, The Small Joys, Book By Its Cover, among others…
  • My favorite color is: The color that looks good next to the other color
  • My first job was: Working with Michele de Lucchi in Milano
  • I cannot live without: My head always being up (I have vertigo)
  • The best advice I ever received is: “The one who follows is always behind.” I don’t know if it’s the best advice ever, but is very sensible!
  • My favorite guilty pleasure is: Traveling
  • A cause I care deeply about is: Education, it can solve everything!

It’s giveaway time: One lucky winner will receive a Blabla Kids Wink Owl Doll! To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment here or on our Facebook page telling us about the most unusual doll you’ve seen or owned. Contest ends Friday, August 27th at 6pm EST.
