Here are some more pictures from the photo shoot we did last month for our hand-knit superhero dolls (you can see part 1 here)! Pictured here are Red, Trixie, Flash, & Seymour. Made by hand in Peru by local artists, these soft, 100% cotton dolls are bursting with character. They don’t fit the typical mold for ‘perfection,’ but celebrate their unique quirks & personality traits that kids everywhere can certainly relate to. They are meant to encourage being comfortable in your own skin and loving what makes you different. A wonderful alternative to the mass produced dolls out there, these knit dolls are also great option for those in the market for designer baby gifts.

P.S. See part 1 here, which includes bios on each of the soft dolls.

Super Bowl 2011 :

Baby Party

POSTED Feb 3, 2011

Super bowl 2011 Baby Football Toy Hand-knit Rattle

Well, our New York Jets didn’t make it into the Super Bowl, but we’re not too bitter. We’ll still have the chips and dip ready this Sunday and watch the Steelers and Packers commercials. Our babies, though, will undoubtedly be a little less into the party and a little more into causing a ruckus. So how do you get your baby Super Bowl party-ready?

The answer is bribery, and with a little luck, you can get the babies to have their own party. Pacify them with a Hand-Knit Football Rattle Toy. Stop by the Estella shop in the West Village to get it or visit our website. Available for $16.

What do you use to pacify your baby during an occasion like the Super Bowl?

Top 10 Reasons We Love Eco-Friendly Bamboo Baby Clothes

POSTED Jan 27, 2011
Cute baby in eco-friendly Estella Bamboo Layette One-Piece

We’ve decided to play Letterman and hold a countdown for the Top 10 Reasons We Love The Eco-Friendly Estella Bamboo Layette Collection of baby clothes. Drumroll, please:

10. Soft as a baby’s behind. The Bamboo Layette collection is not only super soft, but silky smooth, making it perfect for babies’ sensitive and delicate skin. EverydayHealth.com goes as far as saying that bamboo’s luxurious texture is “comparable to that of silk.

9. Born in the U.S.A. Our bamboo line is made entirely in the U.S.A. From the design process to the fabric, each piece is hand-crafted right here in the U.S.

8. Responsible baby. Bamboo is not only a completely eco-friendly, renewable resource, but it’s biodegradable and can be grown with very little impact on the environment. According to the LA Times, unlike conventional cotton, “bamboo grows quickly without requiring chemicals or pesticides.”

7. Breathe easy, baby. Aah, now your baby can breathe easier than in those synthetic fabrics. Bamboo is porous so it’s extremely breathable and comfortable against the skin.

6. Cool & hot baby. Bamboo is thermodynamic, highly moisture absorbent, and protects against the sun’s harmful UV rays — so it keeps your baby cool as a cucumber in hot weather and warm as a pickle in cold weather.

5. Stylish baby. Our Bamboo Layette line is available in pastels and neutrals, which go well with polka dots, florals, and whatever other fun things your kids’ wardrobe has.  So play stylist with your baby by mixing and matching Bamboo basics with brighter pieces. For a baby girl, you can pair Bamboo leggings with a baby girl dress. For a baby boy, you can pair a Bamboo long-sleeved T-shirt with baby boy pants. The basics are also perfect for layering and use as pajamas.

4. Happy mommy. Because bamboo fabrics have antibacterial, anti-fungal, and deodorizing properties, mommy won’t have to wash them as often.  And when the baby spits up, it will be a little less stinky.

3. Healthy baby. Bamboo is hypoallergenic. Its organic and natural properties make it non-irritating, and thus perfect for a baby’s sensitive skin.

2. Comfy baby.The Bamboo Layette Collection goes perfectly with our soft, plush Larucci blankets, made in Italy with faux fur and suede.

And the number-one reason we love the Bamboo collection…

1. Rich mommy. Save money by buying any two Estella Bamboo Layette Collection pieces at regular price and automatically getting 50% off any Jellycat Stuffed Animal or Estella Knit Toy from now until Feb. 28, 2011.

We could go on and on about why we love Bamboo, but we’d love for you to find out for yourself!

Unique European Baby Gifts; MorMor’s Hand-Knit Pacifier Holder

POSTED Sep 27, 2008

MorMor Hand-Knit baby pacifier holderMorMor is a Denmark -based company whose claim to fame is that their youngest employee is a 68 years old. Every garment is hand-knitted with love and care by these “grandmas” who sign every piece they finish. The result is a beautifully retro, yet chic, collection of European Baby Clothing that remind us of the things our own grandmas lovingly make…only much, much better!

If you aren’t already convinced by the story alone, one look at MorMor’s Hand-knit Gold Baby Pacifier Holder will change your mind. This isn’t your everyday pacifier holder that is mass manufactured, but rather a one-of-a-kind piece of art! Your baby will look stylish while this handy device keeps their pacifier close to them and off the ground. Great as a Luxury Newborn Gift!
