cuddle+kind was created by a family of five on a mission to feed children. Every cuddle+kind doll is lovingly handcrafted by artisans in Peru and gives 10 meals to children in need. 1 doll = 10 meals!
Through the success of our stylish hand-knit dolls, cuddle+kind has provided over 20 million meals to children in need in 65 countries around the world, distributed through our respected charitable giving partners: Children's Hunger Fund, World Food Program USA, and Breakfast Club of Canada.
We also provide more than 750 artisans in Peru with equitable employment and fair trade income. cuddle+kind is a Canadian company with a global impact and presence.
We are expanding our direct-to-consumer channel globally while also scaling our footprint in premium retail locations including Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, and Harrods.
cuddle+kind is a welcoming and caring brand and we care deeply about the success, well-being, and enjoyment of our employees. We are an equal opportunity employer committed to providing an inclusive, safe, and equitable work environment for all employees.
We are honoured that our hand-knit dolls have been featured in Oprah Magazine, Today's Parent, People, Good Morning America, Magnolia Home, and more. Our dolls have also won the Oppenheim Platinum Award for Best Toy 6 years in a row, every year since we launched. In 2019, the founders of cuddle+kind were the recipients of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of The Year award, Special Citation Award, and the EY Social Entrepreneur Award.
