and the little dog laughed, launched in January 2008 by Australian designer Kylie Platt, is a whimsical brand that oozes nostalgia for children from newborn to age 5.
Inspired by her own childhood, Kylie creates timeless pieces evoking a sense of nostalgia.
The brand name and the little dog laughed comes from her favorite nursery rhyme – Hey Diddle Diddle.
With her passion for fabrics and design, Kylie loves to combine textures and mediums; knits and fabrics, stretch and floral cotton, adding different dimensions in layers to a piece that would otherwise be flat.
In the latest kids collection you’ll enjoy tees, rompers, and bibs featuring Sydney artist Meredith Gaston. There also is a wonderful range of summer and winter dresses, new stretch denim bloomers, and the ever so popular tutu rompers. You’ll always find detailing with crochet flowers and pockets, fabric covered button trims, and corduroy for boys.
A special perk is that all tees, long sleeve pullovers, rompers, and bloomers come packaged in a zip bag that can be reused to carry all baby essentials be it diapers, baby wipes or pacifiers.
Beyond kids clothes, in the and the dog laughed collection you’ll find blankets made with a combination of hand crochet in pure cotton, corduroy fabric, and grosgrain ribbon trim, are a perfect combination of a touch of old with a touch of new.
And if you are looking for soft toys you’ll enjoy the 100% pure cotton animals – all Australian designed – complete with its own unique personality, rhyme and matching knitted bag.
