Lisa Tonge at Little Green Dot Baby Apparel
Little Green Dot grew make beautiful, contemporary, quality baby gifts and toys, in a traditional and ethical way, so that they will be cherished now and in the future. The owner/maker is Lisa Tonge, a Dublin woman who wants to offer people something a bit more creative, special and different. Her work was initially inspired by a reluctance to buy mass-produced baby gifts and toys when the quality of materials and conditions they were made in could never be certain. This led to making gifts for family and friends and ultimately, to Little Green Dot.
All the items are ethically handmade in Clonakilty, west Cork and have been crafted with great care and thought using only top quality materials. All Little Green Dot toys carry the CE mark. This means they have been safety tested so you can be sure that each toy is safe for your little person.
Little Green Dot was launched in October 2013 to a very positive response. Since then, it has featured in The Irish Times Christmas gift guide and The Irish Examiner, among others. Little Green Dot has been shortlisted in the Maternity and Infant Award 2014 Final in two categories. It is also registered with the Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and Cork Craft and Design.
