cuddle + kind

We're a family of five on a mission to help feed children in need.

There's nothing we love more than being parents. We think nurturing our three children is the most important, rewarding and sometimes challenging job in the world!

With a background in health, we recognize the crucial role nutrition plays in a child's development. As parents, we believe all children should have enough food to eat and the opportunity to thrive, so when we saw a documentary on the devastating impact of childhood hunger on millions of children around the world, it inspired us to help. On that day, we decided to start a company whose purpose is to help improve the lives of children and to make a difference.

We're proud that our dolls are made with natural, high-quality cotton because it's important to us that they're safe, soft and cuddly. We're also super proud that every doll is lovingly handcrafted by incredible women artisans in Peru, providing them with a sustainable, fair trade income. Our whole family is passionate about what we're doing and loves every doll we make. We sincerely hope you will too.

Our Values...

Every child deserves enough food to eat and the opportunity to thrive. It's what motivated us to start cuddle+kind and it's why we give 10 meals to children in need for every doll sold.

Every child deserves an education and needs the energy to learn. It's why we believe in and support school meal programs around the world.

Every child deserves the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty they were born into. Good nutrition and an education are the keys to this opportunity.

Girls and women should be empowered. Childhood hunger and malnutrition disproportionally affect girls. School meal programs help increase the number of girls who are sent to school to get both a meal and an education.

All the people who make our dolls deserve to be treated with fairness, dignity and kindness. We are committed to ethical production, which means all our artisans are empowered with equitable, sustainable employment and are paid a fair trade wage.
