Raff+Lulu explode with colour


My 20 month old daughter is not showing huge signs of being into dolls. With three older brothers to guide her playtime choices, she’s had more football, trains and superheros than dolls, prams and tea-sets. Luckily she has me to pick out a few special friends and even out the balance.

I find dolls to be one of those ‘love at first sight’ items – you certainly know when you’ve found ‘the one’ (or the perfect second, third and fourth!). For me, Raff+Lulu’s divine dollies fit the bill. Their serene, sleeping faces and serious hairdos are calling my name… ahem, I mean my daughter’s name!

Raff and Lulu are two Western Australian mums whose beautiful designs and eye for quirky details make their dolls, toys and baby accessories stand out from the crowd. Indeed the inspiration behind Raff+Lulu is growing up and therefore their design focus is shifting… a new range which includes clothing and designs for the home is promised soon.

We’ll keep you posted on new collections, but in the meantime you can get your hands on some of their creations at Ten Little Indians, including spectacularly bright ‘fireworks’ or pretty ‘blossom’ combos (see picture below). Each combo includes a sensibly large super-sized bib and a ‘superbabe’ (Raff+Lulu’s version of a teddy bear). Priced at $35.95, the combo would make a fabulous gift for a new baby.
