After the arrival of our second child La De Dah Kids was born out of need for affordable, on-trend, quality kids toys and decor in Australia. Starting out small we hope to offer a vast selection of handmade and/or quality items including textiles, soft furnishings and toys. Through our two ranges a year ranges we aim to design quirky and unusual pieces, with an ever-present emphasis on both affordability and quality. 

Our products are now being handmade ethically in Asia by a passionate team of women. I visit twice a year to sample with our producers.  Once our products are sampled, a team of women then make our samples in the comfort of their own home which enables them to work around their childcare and families needs. Thanks to their crochet work these women are able to generate an income throughout the year benefiting the entire community.
