her comment: Peeko is my favorite, they look SO cute and cuddly!
When I was pregnant with Roo, the first thing I wanted to buy for her was one of the adorable knitted dolls I kept seeing in all of the baby magazines and boutiques. I read about how BlaBla was an American company started by two women and all of their products were handcrafted in Peru under Fair Trade conditions by predominantly female artisans. Very cool. We got the lion and a mini bug doll and, eventually an alien and a monkey, too.
Over the past four years of Roo's life, we've seen BlaBla expand their offerings exponentially, with clothing and accessories along with even more cute animals. It is so hard to pick favorites when I want one of everything! The cotton knits are cuddly, soft and durable, withstanding chewing and washing, and in the case of the baby hat that Roo STILL wears, very stretchy… I love that BlaBlais a company founded on friendship and family, something that is evident in the instantly familiar quality that their toys and garments all possess. It's there in spades for their new offering, a roly-poly squishy bundle of love that they call the Boogaloos:
We received the pink-haired beatnik vixen, Yoko Boogaloo, and scruffy-chinned Mini Billy Goat Doll to review and we were, not surprisingly, totally charmed by them both.
Yoko Boogaloo might have the slight advantage because her rotund figure is perfect for hugging. (Roo said "she looks like you, mommy!" which may or may not have been a compliment.) The other Boogaloos look just as charming. I would like to have a bed filled with them, like a giant ball pit of cuddly cuteness. I have a pretty big crush on the super shaggy Mr. X, don't tell Billy!
BlaBla has so much great stuff, it wouldn't all fit here. But I must include this, from their doll tee line because it makes me smile. I love the cat tees, too.
