About Us

and the little dog laughed was launched in January 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.

Oozing traditional charm, the clothing range evokes a 'touch of fantasy' to and the little dog laughed's nostalgic designs.

All tees, rompers and bloomers come packaged in a zip bag that can be reused to carry all baby essentials.

An ongoing favourite, blankets made with a combination of hand crochet in pure cotton with a grosgrain ribbon trim, are a perfect combination of a touch of old with a touch of new, alongside hand knitted animals made with pure cotton

A recent addition are super soft extra large muslin wraps which come in a range of traditional and contemporary designs.

Since their launch they have received a fantastic response, and are currently stocked in many countries world wide.
