A father’s dream, to invent different soft toys for his little boy. As a modern father, his vision was softness and comfort using innovative materials in a rainbow full of colours. His aim was to create the doudou his little boy had dreamt of. A little bear, an emotional symbol for all toddlers, was then chosen as the brand’s emblematic animal.
Because dreams can come true, Kaloo came to life one beautiful morning in late 1998. Kaloo, whose name was inspired by this one little boy, Lucas…
Because a child’s everyday life should be filled with wonder and softness to encourage their evolution, Kaloo, with its’ modern design and innovative themes creates a complete world for children to revisit timeless classics.
The genesis of a Kaloo soft toy
Each Kaloo product is the culmination of a long history and the collaboration of various departments brought to fruition.
The concept originates from within our creative designer’s team. A theme is elaborated on and a story defined. These words are then translated into a drawing; the impression is transcribed into shapes, patterns and materials. Special attention is paid to the material, ensuring quality of touch and colour harmony – our brand signatures. A rough draft is then passed to the workroom. The initial form is then modified and reflected upon until a final model is perfected.
Each product is put through rigorous quality control tests to ensure sewing resistance, torque, tension, drop, impact, fire resistance and toxicity. All Kaloo products bear the CE stamp, synonymous with compliance to European safety standards.
Once arranged in their round gift boxes, a Kaloo soft toy just has to wait for a baby’s arms...
