UK online market place for children's clothes, toys and gifts, is now open to brands and buyers from around the world.

Launched last year, the firm already works with many of the major UK independent toy brands including Le Toy Van, BigJigs Toys, Jamm Toys and more.

Now fitted with a 'multi-currency' feature, the site is welcoming sellers from across the globe to list items in their local currencies. Buyers will then be able to view these items in their own local currency.

"We have always showcased unique and one of a kind children's items from around the world," said Loubilou CEO, Heath Kane.

"But as of today, we are truly a global marketplace."

Loubilou features more than 500 independent designers and sellers, offering more than 5000 unique clothing, toys and accessory items for babies and children.

Until now, only UK based sellers who accepted payment in GBP could sell their merchandise on the site.

Kane continued: "Our goal is to reintroduce quality and authenticity to shoppers looking for original children's goods in a marketplace dominated by big brands selling mass produced items in large quantities.

"There really is a big world of small wonders out there."


Le Toy Van shifts gear for global expansion

The wooden toy firm is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year by detailing plans to take on the South American, Indian and Chinese markets, as well as continue the success of Petilou next year and beyond.
