Jelly Cat

Jellycat was established in London in 1999 to create quirky, original and innovative soft toys for all ages. The name Jellycat was dreamt up by a child who loved jellies and cats and giggled at the thought of the two together. The silliness of the name was a great reflection of the design and so it stuck!  Jellycat continuously experiments with designs, trying to find the most loveable combination of soft squidginess and quirky which are launched in two collections each year.


Cupcakes & Cartwheels

With a happy, colorful and juvenile vibe guiding its collections, this company focuses on products that enrich youthful ambiances.  Whether playful, quizzical or spirited design, you can be sure to find it at Cupcakes & Cartwheels!  Each of C&C's collections play off of the imaginative & unique sensibility of all hand-crafted products. 

Melissa & Doug

There was a time not so long ago when childhood offered the space and freedom for children to explore their world. To be curious. To be creative. To be bold. To be bored. To just . . . be. Today, our overscheduled and overstimulated children are using their imaginations less than ever. It’s a crisis in the making. And it’s why Melissa & Doug is committed to making products that inspire open-ended thinking and encourage kids to see new possibilities. 



Wild & Wolf (Ridley's) creates unique, on-trend product ranges that appeal to a diverse section of consumers and offer form and function combined with provenance and strong design stories to ensure they are ahead of current market trends.

Cate and Levi

Cate and Levi manufacture one of a kind, responsibly made, and beautifully designed products for children. They created a unique collection of products that are intricately crafted and environmentally responsible. No two Cate & Levi wool products will ever be the same. Each one is made from reclaimed wool whose colors and textures are individually selected. Each item is as unique as the child who adopts it.
