When Cuddle & Kind adopted “Stylish, hand-knit dolls with an impact” as their slogan, they weren’t kidding.
This ohh so precious handcrafted doll company was founded by a family of five on a mission to feed children in need. From day one, they were set on fighting childhood hunger and their company’s purpose is to help improve the lives of children by providing one million meals each year.
To top it off, every Cuddle & Kind doll is made with premium, natural cotton to ensure they’re safe, soft to the touch, and cuddly the way every doll should be!
Each heirloom quality doll is handcrafted by Peruvian artisans who are provided with a fair trade, sustainable income to complete the “feel good, do good” vision that the company was born with.
Their dolls are the perfect gift for a newborn baby, a young child, and fit the bill if you’ve just designed a nursery for an expecting mother. Trust us, we’ve got two in our collection so far!
For every doll sold, 10 meals are distributed to children in need across the world. If you need to find a sweet gift for a parent or mother-to-be, you might as well make an impact while you’re at it.
