About Dress Me Up
Dress Me Up specializes in beautiful, organic toys for young children that are gentle and safe, and always art-inspired. They are a mama-made (not factory made) independent cottage industry located in Victoria BC, Canada. When you purchase from Dress Me Up, you are supporting their small company directly.
Their products are brought to life by owner, designer and creator Tressa Brotsky and her small team of craftswomen and mamas, all located in or near Victoria BC. Each organic soft toy, teether and baby linen is meticulously and responsibly handmade in small batches, ensuring confidence and loads of good, loving energy in every aspect of production.
I can't remember when I first discovered the Dress Me Up shop, but it has been on my radar for quite some time–one of those things I had stored away in my memory for the days when my next baby arrived, or when I needed a shower gift for someone special. I am always drawn to simple, classic baby toys and I love the "new take" that Dress Me Up puts on the classics. And it is purely icing on the cake that they are a small company, making handmade toys from organic and sustainable materials. After having the privilege of emailing back and forth with Tressa, I'm so happy I can share her amazing shop with all of you.
One of Tressa's Organic Cloth balls is sitting on the bookshelf in Birdy's room waiting for the days when her little hands are coordinated enough to grab and play with it. And I can pretty much guarantee that when the time is right, I'll be adding one of the Rabbit Rattles or Teething BonBons to her toy basket as well.
Tressa is graciously offering one lucky MommyCoddle reader the chance to win one of her lovely organic cloth balls in the new Tree Ring Design (in blue). Simply leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway. All winners from this week, chosen randomly, will be announced on Monday, May 3rd.
(NOTE: This giveaway is for US residents only, please.)

I’d love one of these!
These balls are so cute!
Absolutely beautiful. I’m sure my Cricket would love one once she’s old enough!
I love these! So beautiful and good for the world to boot!
Oh goodness! How perfect! My little Imp (who will, tomorrow be the middle child instead of the youngest!) just adores balls. I learned needle felting so that I could make him soft, natural balls to play with.
I can’t wait to dive into that website. Look out budget, I’m here to destroy you! (:
So soft and adorable!

Those balls are beautiful! This company will be bookmarked for sure for future baby gifts (both our own and others).
These are really cute! I LOVE that they are organic and made in small batches to ensure quality. Reminds me of how people say that the key ingredient to their food recipes is love. Things like that do make a difference!
Love these! Thanks for putting Dress Me Up on my radar too :0) What an awesome company!
Oh these are just soo pretty, and I’m sure the babies love them too 🙂

Perfect material for a ball. And the blog is fun too!
What a great toy
These look too cute. I’m having my first baby in July so I think these would be perfect. I bet Birdy is going to love them too.
These are really cute! 🙂
Ohhh, these are wonderful! Gorgeous to see, and I bet they *feel* gorgeous! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
BTW, do you know of the book Catherine, Called Birdy by Karen Cushman? Every time you mention your Birdy, I think of it. It’s wonderful!
So pretty! So much prettier than most baby toys.
These are so pretty!
Looks like fun!
These are lovely. I was just remarking today to Ali that I can’t believe we don’t have any balls for Arlo yet! He’s at the perfect age — grasping well AND sitting! Today he was playing with some potatoes, which certainly do the trick, but something a bit more permanent would be nice too 🙂
This shop looks delightful! I am in the process of opening a new, nature inspired drop in “playcare” facility and items from this shop will be a must!!
My toddler and the new baby due at the end of the summer would both be able to enjoy these.
I can feel the baby kicking and reaching for the adorable ball right now…
All these giveaways are fantastic. This looks like a great company. Your blog is getting me all excited for this baby we are having!
we could use this in the fall 🙂
Looks like a beautiful, fun, and simple toy!
we are slowly getting rid of all our plastic toys around our home. these balls are so cute! i would love to add one to our new non-toxic collection 🙂
