Gaya, Founder of Little Bo Babies

Who is Gaya?

Gaya, mom of twin girls and living in Cape Town, South Africa, is the owner and founder of Little Bo Babies.

“I love how creative children are,” says Gaya, “and preserving this great phase through our soft, huggable toys is the best way to keep these memories alive.”


Supporting the Community

Gaya supports the local community by employing previously disadvantaged, unemployed women from Hout Bay, South Africa, and training them to create Little Bo Baby plush toys and dolls.

Little Bo Babies also gives back to the community by being involved in the community’s charity organisation.

We hand-craft soft, cuddly toys from childrens’ drawings.

Our team of seamstresses is happy to be working and loves making all the animals, aliens, angels – even family members – come to life as a soft toy.


We love seeing how happy your children are when they get their Little Bo Baby plush toys.

So please do send your photo to gaya@littlebobabies.com.

Esme’s love for sewing started with her mom. Sharing wonderful memories making things. A single mom to a lovely son age 5 found ways to support her family. Esme is so happy to making these dolls and creating new memories for children and parents.
