I have always had a love for hand-crafted things and appreciated the time and effort that it takes to make them. Tied in with this is a reluctance to buy mass-produced toys and baby gifts when I could never be sure of the quality of materials and conditions that they were made in.When lovely babies started arriving with good friends and family, it was a natural choice for me to make something for them.
I had been making things for the previous 10 years and learned my hard-earned skills over endless cups of tea and many (some tearful) hours over the sewing machine. It was a pleasure to use these (now developed) skills to handcraft a unique, beautiful piece that will be treasured for years to come. It still gives me a bit of a thrill to know that every baby gift that I make will be given to a new little baby and become part of the story of their birth and precious first years.
Little Green Dot was launched in October 2013 to a very positive response . We are regularly featured in local and national press and were even featured on TV3’s Ireland AM. In 2014 and 2016, we were shortlisted in in the Maternity & Infant Awards in two categories; trendy tots brand and best toddler/baby toy. We are registered with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and Cork Craft and Design.
We still make Little Green Dot pieces in our in-house craft studio and love to think of all the babies with their handmade Little Green Dot gear :) Everything that we make follows age-old craft traditions in Ireland. Often in the past, these baby or child items were made by a loving hand, kept and passed on through the generations. All that we make at Little Green Dot is crafted with this in mind.
Our eco-cool approach-We make gifts that people can feel good about. You can rest easy with the knowledge that we at Little Green Dot try to act ethically in all our work. Our gifts do not cost the earth and are fair to the people that make them.
All Little Green Dot toys carry the CE mark. This means they have been safety tested so you can be sure that each toy is safe for your little person and you don’t need to worry. We also use the same materials in our baby wraps and blankets and top quality organic fabrics so you can have peace of mind about them too.
