Meet the Candidates – Mr. & Madame President Baby Rattles

By - POSTED Oct 13, 2016


Democrat, republican or independent, it doesn’t matter, we just want to celebrate the freedom to choose that we Americans have.  Regardless of whether you are a Donald Trump fan, a Hillary Clinton supporter, love one of the Independent candidates or are completely undecided, you can still celebrate the birth of babies born during this historical election with this Election newborn baby gift set.

Designed over a year ago, when the current candidates were not yet chosen by their respective parties, these organic baby toys were never meant to make a political statement.  The intent was to recognize and celebrate the US democratic system that allows all citizens an equal opportunity to choose their leadership.

This set includes a Madame President rattle, which of course would be historic in the US, an American flag rattle and a Mr. President rattle.  Like most of Estella baby gifts, each of these infant toys is knit by hand using GOTS certified organic cotton.  This is a must have for the parents who are engaged in the process and are passionate about our elections or for the parents who are convinced that their child is destined to be President.  In years to come, baby will remind their parents of this contentious election whenever they engage in pretend play with their rattle toys.

For those who have a favorite and would rather not have the whole gift set, these baby rattles are also available individually.

Estella Baby Rattles & Gift Set in Buzzfeed

By - POSTED Oct 5, 2016

buzzfeedwpWe’re thrilled to see Estella Baby Gifts featured in Buzzfeed!

The Editors of the hot news site featured our newborn baby gifts and baby rattles.  Specifically, they chose to showcase our New York inspired Organic Taxi Baby Gift Set.  This charming infant gift set comes complete with an organic cotton baby onesie with a yellow taxi design that is silk screened with eco-friendly dye.  It also includes a white hat, a taxi shaped handmade rattle that is made of certified organic cotton exterior and a gift box.  Everything in his unique baby shower gift is machine washable and easy to care for, including the rattle toy.

Also featured is Estella’s Organic Hot Sauce Rattle. These baby rattles are made for the Tabasco, hot sauce or food loving families.  Not only would this baby’s first hot sauce toy bring a smile to the foodie parents, but they would appreciate that it is organic.  Much like many foods these days, this baby rattle is handmade in Peru using super soft GOTS certified organically grown cotton.  Not only does this reduce our carbon footprint, but parents worry less that their baby will come in contact with potentially harmful chemicals in conventional cotton that is grown with chemical based pesticides.  These featured baby rattles also make a soft rattling sound instead of some of the harsher, clunky sounds you may be used to in some of the widely available infant toys.  The hot sauce rattle makes for a very tasteful gift for the littlest future foodie in the house.  We are humbled by the editors of Buzzfeed for featuring these newborn gifts.

Soft Toys for Baby Rooms

By - POSTED Aug 22, 2016

Organic Baby Blankets - Estella Taxi

Whether you are in desperate need of baby room ideas or still in the midst of prepping for your first one’s impending arrival, there’s no doubt that nursery decor is an important final step in preparing for baby. Think about all the time you and your little one will be spending in there over the next few years! Once you have decided on the theme and ordered the essentials (crib, changing table, etc.), check out our collection of decorative pillows, crib baby blankets, and stuffed baby toys that will add a personality-packed finishing touch to any baby room or play space.

Our soft toys and decorative pillows are a supersized take on our popular baby rattles. Hand-knit in Peru by local craftsmen using ultra-soft cotton, these stuffed toys feature graphic prints, soft textures, and unique 3D elements (like the taxi’s wheels or the rotary phone’s detachable receiver) and include NYC-themed taxi, Metrocard, and subway pillows, throwback TV and record player baby plush toys, and sporty football and baseball designs. Whether these stuffed toys remain purely decorative or spark your little one’s imagination as he or she develops into toddlerhood, these baby room ideas are no doubt a fun addition to any nursery.


Additionally, meet the newest member to Estella’s line of organic infant toys and accessories: our taxi crib blanket! A supersized take on our popular lovey blanket, this item is equal parts decorative and functional due to its endless uses. In addition to being part of your little one’s nursery decor, these baby blankets can double as stroller blankets, travel companions, or beloved keepsakes that will be cherished long after baby grows up.
