Hand-Knit Friends from BlaBla Kids {plus Discount Code}

As a knitter, I'm gaga over BlaBla Kids and their collection of handmade cotton dolls.  I seriously want one of each!  The designs are so whimsical and the colors are vibrant with lots of kid-appeal.

Hand-knitted by Peruvian artisans and created from natural fibers grown in Peru, BlaBla dolls are not only utterly adorable, but they're great for supporting regional craftspeople.

The designs are the brainchild of Florence Wetterwald, whose variety of BlaBla creations is astounding.  Everything from salty punk rockers
to sweet ballerinas.
We received Basil the Bunny mini, who has quickly made himself at home in our family and amongst the toys. 
Soren's taken to Basil quite well, and insists that Basil is NOT going to become the baby's when he/she arrives in July.   Well, ok then!
I love that Basil would be perfect for girls or boys; his stripes and cheerful colors would suit any young (or old!) child.
Basil is quite squeezable too, and is a perfect sleeping companion.  And eating and drinking and playing companion too.
BlaBla dolls come in giant sizes too, and I fully intend to buy one for the baby when the time comes.  I'd really like to purchase Giselle the Ballerina (seen above) if we have a girl.  The red hair is irresistible, especially since I had bright red hair as a child.  However, Lemonade the Dog is quite cute too, especially for a mom who is smitten with polka dots.
If you're looking for a BlaBla doll or one of their many other items, like their adorable backpacks and mobiles for the wee ones or not-so-wee ones in your life,
BlaBla Kids is offering Katydid and Kid readers a 15% discount with the promo code katydid15.  Offer expires February 20th, 2011.
Disclosure: I received a BlaBla doll for review purposes.
