Jacques and Esther: New from blabla kids for Spring 2015

Two hippos are joining the blabla knit dolls collection this spring– Jacques the blue sailor and Esther the purple bathing beauty (at least that’s how I’m going to describe her).

Jacques and Esther

You KNOW I’ve got to be partial to Esther, even though she’s a hippo, because we Esthers have to stick together!

There’s also this adorable collection of new roly poly family rattles. I’m gonna call the little blonde one Esther too. I think we’ve got a strong resemblance.

There are new cushions, blankets, and three sets of house blocks.
