Published on: 6th March 2013

Loubilou, a new website offering parents a global marketplace featuring individual sellers of children’s clothing, gifts, toys and accessories, is being launched in the UK this April.Loubilou300 brings together independent sellers around the world. Sellers on Loubilou will be able to create their own storefront, free of charge, enabling them to connect with a larger audience.

Loubilou was created by Heath Kane, father of two, award-winning designer and former creative director of Sapient.

Aimed at parents with children up to the age of 10, will be a one-stop shop for parents looking for high-quality, boutique children’s goods from independent sellers, designers and crafts people from around the world.

Heath Kane said: “Most parents have limited time and rely on major high street retailers to shop for their children. I noticed my kids, and all their friends, were looking like little department store clones. Individuality is important for children but there wasn’t a single website offering a more diverse range of clothing and toys. will initially launch in the UK but we plan to roll-out across Europe within the next six months.”
