Creating original and innovative soft toys in London since 1999, Jellycat continues to combine luxurious fabrics with designs that are sometimes quirky, sometime cute but always with a little something different that makes them stand out from the crowd! The name Jellycat was dreamt up by a child who loved jellies and cats and giggled at the thought of the two together. The silliness of the name was a great reflection of the design and so it stuck!
We have designed in the UK since the beginning and continue to work with designers in London and around the country. The small range we launched with in 1999 was individual and most unusual, announcing ourselves as a soft toy creator with a difference. Since then we have continued to work hard to combine the coolest designs with the most luxurious of fabrics in the process creating thousands of wonderfully innovative soft toys. Check out our design history and have a good giggle of where our imaginations have taken us!
Our network of stockists has grown considerably since the beginning. Not long after establishing ourselves in the UK, Jellycat Inc was set up in Minneapolis in 2001. In the following years we have been privileged to supply some of the finest retail shops, department stores and boutiques throughout the UK, USA, Canada, Europe, Asia and even as far as Australia.
We are continuously experimenting with designs, trying to find the most loveable combination of soft squidginess and quirky which are launched in two collections each year. Seek out our quirky critters wherever you go!
Unless otherwise stated on the sew-in label, we recommend hand washing your Jellycat with mild soap, followed by fabric conditioner to maintain its softness, and rinsed with cool water. Some soothers and comforters are suitable for a cool machine wash- please check the sew-in label. Please refer to the Safety and Suitability tab for each individual product on recommendations for how to wash.
SAFETY AND SUITABILITY:
The safety of everything we make at Jellycat is of the utmost importance to us. We take the greatest care possible to make sure you and your children stay safe with our toys.
Every toy we sell from the UK is rigorously tested to the European Safety Standard (EN71 parts 1,2 & 3). All the animals, their friends and accessories too have all willingly participated in these tests and all bear the CE mark as proof of their success.
All of our toys are tested for any age suitability. This means that unless the toy carries a specific safety recommendation or suitability message, a Jellycat toy is safe for all ages- from birth to 100 years old (and beyond!)
Safety Information on jellycat.com
Every individual product page will have a product information tab. The first tab is a quirky fun description of the toy. The second tab entitled “Safety & Care” is where you will find all the safety information relevant to the particular toy and any recommendations. These recommendations will also be attached to the toy itself, on a hangtag, when it arrives with you. Please do keep this hangtag for future reference.
We hold an EN71 test certificate for every Jellycat toy you will find on jellycat.com. They are available upon request, please do get in touch with us if you would like to see a copy.
