best of the nest | blabla kids

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Ours was spent almost exclusively outside & in the breeze + sunshine. I love this time of year so much, I could spent every waking hour outside...whether in our backyard, laying in the hammock, playing at the park, on a long walk. You name it. Fresh air does wonders for the soul!! 

Today as part of April's Creating a Dream Home & Nursery theme, I'm so excited to be sharing one of my all-time favorite companies since becoming a Mom, having little girls to shop for and nurseries to decorate, Blabla Kids

Created in 2001 by Susan Pritchett and Florence Wetterwald -- good friends with the same philosophy of life & beauty -- BlaBla specializes in beautiful hand knit dolls, decor, toys & more. Their gorgeous mobiles are just a dream and the pom pom one we have in Poppy's room is such a wonderful focal point.

While visiting Peru, Susan and Florence came across entire villages of expert knitters who had been keeping the tradition alive for generations...inspired by their talent and touched by their gentle spirit, they decided to start their own company of knitted products for children and BlaBla was born. They've now been collaborating with the same artisans for over a decade.

In addition to offering a wide range of mobiles, BlaBla Kids is most widely known for their knit dolls. Offered in three different sizes, handmade with the softest cotton in Peru and the loveliest color patterns and sweetest details, we absolutely love them all!

My six absolute favorites are shown here but with over 60 different knit dolls, you are sure to find one your child will love. They look beautiful sitting in a nursery, make a one of a kind gift and are the perfect toy for your little one to hold, snuggle and play with.

BlaBla also offers rattles, finger puppets, play pads, knit pillows, blankets, crib sheets and more. Their color patterns are so serene and using the highest quality materials, they stand behind everything they make and offer incredible customer service, something that is so important to me in a company.


If you've fallen in love with BlaBla as much as we have and have your eye on a few favorite pieces for your own home or nursery, be sure to use the code BLESSEDNEST15 at checkout to receive 15% off your total purchase! Discount valid Monday April 18 through Saturday April 30.



And because Poppy loves her pom pom mobile so much, I've teamed up with BlaBla Kids to give away a $50 SHOP CREDIT to one of you to pick out something for your little one or a gift for a Mama to Be! Head over to my instagram @blessednestblog for all the giveaway details and to find out how to enter. For an extra entry, leave a comment below sharing your favorite product from BlaBla Kids.

Hope your week is off to a great start!! XO

  26. We have been huge fans of Blabla for years. The most beloved item is my eight year old daughter's Bubbles the Cat knit dolls she named "Lumpy". This doll has slept with her every night since she was two and they have been on a gazillion adventures together! I can't wait for my two month old baby to pick out his own Lumpy :) My IG is @toridarling1
