Over the years I’ve learned that bath toys should not have a hole. Even though you’re a clean person (which you are, of course), there will eventually grow a nasty, black substance inside that toy. Also, independent of their age it seems, children love to put everything they find in the bath into their mouth. So bath toys are best made of a natural rubber.
Enter the new label Oli&Carol, launched by two sisters from Barcelona aged 15 and 20 (15 and 20!!!), which offers the most darling rubber toys, without a hole, and made from 100% pure latex and painted with food grade, non-toxic dyes.
I really love the sweet, retro designs that the girls came up with — simple ‘paper’ boats, cool beetle cars, fruity teething rings, the original rubber ducks, etc. My personal favourites are the red toadstools — I love the look of them in our bathroom (and my kids love playing with them!).
15 and 20!!? That’s… I feel old. And unproductive.
Anyway, do you know where I can by these cute bath toys? I couldn’t find any retailer information on their website. Thanks x
Yay for Oli and Carol!! The toadstools and boats are my favorite too. Happy bath time!
Sarah, we sell the boats in our shop…Esther may know of shops where the toadstools are sold. I do know those come in a set with a brown rabbit!
Sisters Guild is a stockist of Oli & Carol http://www.sistersguild.com xx
Are you on Etsy? Would love to have a closer look at these products (I am in Australia).
Hi Stella – we just received the first shipment to arrive in Australia for this brand. We have most of the range up on our site. You can send me an email if you have any questions.
Toadstools, rabbits and boats at http://www.thekidwho.eu btw! 😉
I can’t believe!! Two girls younger than me (I’m 23 and from Barcelona, too) starting a project like this? Amazing!
We love the story of Oli & Carol, their mum Lorena Canals also design children’s interiors and thought it would be a good idea for her girls to get some business experience. Brilliant. And also available at http://www.littlecitizensboutique.com xo
