Boogie baby blankets are one of Bellini’s favorite blankets. Not only are they the yummiest blanket but their designs are to cute for words. They make the perfect gift and are a “must have” for every nursery. We wanted to know a little more about Boogie Baby blankets, so we were able to chat with founder and owner Ellie Giller.
1. What inspired you to create the yummiest blanket on the market?
My entire life I’ve had a passion for kids and creativity, which is why I started my career as an elementary school art teacher. I later turned that passion into my own clothing line for children. As I continued to look for new and innovative products to design, I dreamed up Boogie Baby as a way to allow people to customize a blanket more unique and special than anything you could find on a store shelf. I continue to be very inspired by kids – especially my own grand kids!
2. If you could pick three of your favorite designs, what would they be and why?
That’s a tough question – I love so many! But I have a special place in my heart for dogs, especially sheep dogs! My own sheep dogs were the inspiration for the Good Puppy design. But I particularly love all of the animal designs! They’re so whimsical and fun – and that’s what our blankets are really about.
3. How would you describe Boogie Baby in 3 words?
Uniquely customized comfort
4.Do you have any future plans you would like to share, maybe new designs or any new products added to Boogie Baby collection?
Several times each year we introduce new designs into our collection. This spring it was our new cowboy and cowgirl blankets and a really fun new fairy design. This fall, who knows? My 2- and 4-year-old granddaughters are really into pirates at the moment, and they’re pretty much the boss of me. So we’ll see!
In the meantime, we’re constantly looking for ways to bring the very best aspects of our blankets – the plushness and the whimsical designs – into other aspects of baby’s and kid’s lives, which is why we introduced our hooded towels last year.
