About and the little dog laughed
and the little dog laughed was launched in January 2008 by Australian designer, Kylie Platt. Kylie has a passion for fabrics and design, and particularly loves to combine textures and different mediums: cotton and fabric, stretch and floral cottons, adding different layers to a piece that would otherwise be one dimensional.
Kylie draws a lot of inspiration from her own childhood and her timeless pieces evoke this sense of nostalgia. The inspiration for the labels’ name comes from one of her favourite childhood nursery rhymes, Hey Diddle Diddle.
The brand specializes in clothing using super soft, stretch fabrics for ages 0-2 years, as well as 100% cotton hand knitted animals. This style is vintage shabby chic, clothing that looks and feels good anywhere.
The clothing range comes packaged in a zip bag that can be reused to carry all baby essentials and includes rompers with branded poppers, t-shirts, pants, shorts, bloomers, wraps and their signature long sleeve hoodies.
The 100% cotton hand knitted toys are made by village women in China, allowing them to earn an income whilst staying in their home. All toys are certified to CE standards and can be machine or hand washed.
