Loubilou

Find imaginative, quirky and downright adorable things for children and babies.

Every once in a while a website crops up that really stops us in our tracks, and with its collection of independent, ethical and unique products for kids, Loubilou is one such site. This is what every mother/godparent is longing to stumble across on the internet; an online shop that offers imaginative, quirky and downright adorable clothes, toys and accessories for babies and children - with a conscience thrown in for good measure.

CLOTHING, TOYS & ACCESSORIES FROM AROUND THE WORLD

Loubilou brings together buyers and independent sellers from around the world in a friendly, online marketplace. The site is a delightful collaboration of good intentions, pretty photographs and high quality products, all of which means that this is the perfect haven for shoppers (and sellers) who are eager to bypass the big corporate players.

Look out for British-made baby and children’s goods, organic baby clothes, eco-friendly toys, unique gift ideas for kids and much more. We particularly love the range of handmade childrenswear from London based label, What Mother Made and the colouring sets, prints and melamine plates from Liverpool company, Leon and Coco. With a whole raft of toys designed to encourage creativity, there are plenty of products here to get excited about.

WARNING: You will have to accept that, although prices are reasonable, your PayPal account will probably take a bashing. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
