About Us

and the little dog laughed was launched in 2008 by Australian designer, Kylie Platt. 

Kylie has a passion for fabrics and design, and particularly loves to combine textures and mediums; knits and fabrics, stretch and floral cottons, adding different layers to a piece that would otherwise be one dimensional.

Kylie draws a lot of inspiration from her own childhood, and particularly likes to create timeless pieces that evoke a sense of nostalgia. The inspiration for the labels' name comes from one of her favourite nursery rhymes from her childhood, Hey Diddle Diddle.

With an initial launch of the brands' signature hand crochet blankets and knitted softie range for babies, this has evolved over time to include clothing, homeware for children's rooms, doll furniture and the ever popular and growing range of wool felt softies with Australian merino wool clothing.

Each piece is designed to not only evoke a sense of nostalgia but are designed to be loved and cherished through to the next generation
