  • Introducing: Bonikka Dolls

    November 12, 2016

    We are happy to introduce a new item to our collection: Bonikka Dolls from the manufacturer of Meiya & Alvin!

    bonikka dolls

    The concept for Bonikka came out of a family tradition that originated in 1895 from a simple action with great significance. The great grandfather of a Sri Lankan woman named Mano Sheriff, initially gifted a beautiful porcelain doll to his daughter; Mano’s grandmother, as she left home to begin a family of her own.

    Since receiving it as a gift from her mother, Mano has kept Monica, the precious heirloom doll, under her attentive watch. Generations later, as a Director of DSL Lanka Private Ltd., a family-owned and operated manufacturer of some of the world’s best soft toys and dolls, Mano was inspired by her family’s tradition. Through Monica, she has experienced the same sense of enduring family love and support as her grandmother did upon receiving it as a gift more than 120 years ago.

    What makes the dolls unique?

    • Hand made rag dolls

    • Tactile with different and innovative textiles

    • The dresses are machine washable. They velcro on and off.

    • Detailed stitching and embellishments

    • With each Bonikka purchase made, a portion of the sale is donated to subsidize the living expenses of the girls housed at Viharamahadevi Centre for Child Development Centre. An orphanage located in close proximity to our the factory in Biyagama, Sri Lanka.

    • All natural rubber heads (same rubber as M&A)

    • Soft bodies filled with recycled plastic beans

    • Easy to grip

  • Supporting Your Child's Artistic Side Through Hobbies

    November 12, 2016

    Guest Post:Alisha Christine.

    Many children love illustrations and colouring, but you need not confine yourself and your child to paper and crayons most of the time. It’s undoubtedly a great medium, but it’s still just one way to express creativity.

    There are many other activities you can try out, some in which you can lend a hand, while others you can just watch your kid do all the work and grow by themselves. Here are some hobbies you can share with your child all in the name of artistry.

  • Get ready to go back to preschool

    August 25, 2016

    To make sure your child has a smooth transition from summer freedom to school, start with small steps that can be integrated into daily routines. Whether your toddler is going to preschool for the first time or returning for another year, below are some tips to a parent!

    Teach them to be vocal

    Try role-playing situations that will come up during the school day with your child. Make them feel comfortable to make requests such as "I need help" or bathroom breaks. Communication and ability to communicate will only help the toddler in the classroom.

    Set the stage
    Even if your child is returning to preschool, a summer break for a young child can seem like an eternity. Prior to school's beginning, start communicating the new routine to the child. Create excitement for the child and focus on all the positive things that will come with going back to school! Go shopping for a lunch box, school clothes, drive by the school....

    Practice skills

    Get back in mental shape - alphabet, geometry shapes - practices with your child what he or she have learned in the past to make them feel confident in their skills. Also, keep in mind that by age 4 most preschools expect a child to recognize his or her name, and will encourage to start writing it. Make this activity fun by writing it in chalk on the sidewalk or with a stick in the sand. Similarly, preschool calls for more use of kids' fine motor skills. Some ideas to practice motor skills include ripping paper into long strips, cutting with kid-safe scissors or puzzles.

    Stress Self-Help Skills

    Bathroom training, velcro their shoes, putting a backpack on - basic self help skills are crucial in the classroom.  Kids feel pride mastering these tasks and this encourages their independence and helps them learn organization. Break it down into one manageable step at a time.
