    The Olli Ella Dinkum Dolls have arrived on South African shores

    It was only but a dream for us to be able to stock the gorgeous Olli Ella Dinkum Dolls… and guess what? Dreams do come true. It’s been an absolute honour to be the very first retailer in South Africa to stock these cuties, and we are so in love! But what is all the fuss about with this brand that has taken Instagram by storm and what exactly is in their range of gorgeous toys for your little one?

    Who are Olli Ella?

    Olli Ella design timeless products that are unlike any other. They use natural materials, all sourced sustainably, and their focus is on craftsmanship and ethical production. The brand was born in London in 2010 by sisters Chloe and Olivia Brookman. The name Olli Ella comes from a combination of their first and middle names.

    Today Chloe lives in Byron Bay with her husband, three kids and two dogs, while Olivia lives between London and LA with her husband and two little ones. They draw their inspiration for their designs from their nomadic childhoods spent travelling and exploring the world. Today with the Australian and Californian sun influencing their products,  Olli Ella pieces are easily identified by their vintage-aesthetic, simple lines and use of natural materials.

    Their mission is simple, to design beautiful sustainable products that are perfect for playtime that look stylish for your child’s nursery but that will also fit anywhere in your home.

    Meet the Dinkum Dolls

    Here they are! The Instagram famous dolls that everyone loves – The Olli Ella Dinkum Dolls. They are full of love and wonder, children can snuggle them, dress them and style their hair. Each Dinkum Doll is unique and looking for their owner to name them and decide who they are. Dinkum Dolls were made to be loved and cared for, to inspire a sense of friendship and nurturing in the hearts and minds of little people. They are soft-bodied, posable, plus they can even stand up, they are full of character which provide a source of comfort and delight for children.

    Dinkum dolls encourage imaginative play with their posable arms, legs and head that moves. They can even sit and stand when wearing their stylish shoes. Dinkum dolls also love to be dress up and having their hair styled in loads of different ways, there is no end to the fun and imaginative play. They are made from the softest, snuggliest cotton outer, making them the ideal doll for not only playing with, but cuddling and going to sleep with. Your little ones Dinkum will quickly become their best friend.

    They feature the sweetest embroidered details, from their eyes and mouth, to the little rainbow over their heart to remind us that no rainbow is ever the same as another. It’s up to your child to choose who their Dinkum doll is, their personality and style.
