Homemade dolls from Montreal

Raplaplas are a unique, limited edition line of handmade dolls and cuddly toys that are now available at Hip Baby.  They are made in Montreal, Canada by Erica Perrot who spent several years as a costume designer and sewing instructor before launching her line of adorable toys.  

Monsieur Tse Tse is made of organic cotton with embroidered eyes.  He lives in an adorable cardboard house that is decorated with the illustrations of Isabelle Arsenault and is produced by members of a social integration organization. (10% of the profits from sales are donated to UNICEF)

The lovely Lea is a pastry chef from Rome.  She likes to go for swims in the sea, eat butter with a spoon and loves her 3 cats.

Hard not to love.
