Our history

Kaloo, a story of French-style passion, offers your little ones and older children a world of sweetness and charm which meets their needs for stimulation, tenderness and security.

Show your love by giving to those you love.

1998

Creation of the KALOO brand,

a combination of the two essential values of the brand: Cuddles and softness, in French, “Câlin” and “Doux” which form the name, CALOUX = KALOO. The bear, the sentimental symbol beloved by small children is chosen as the emblematic animal. With his small, fully-rounded belly into which little children love to plunge their fingers, two curious eyes and an incomparable softness, we call him “Chubby Teddy”: he has become the icon of the brand.

The first collection is launched

in January 1999 and the first Comforters and Chubby Teddies made their entrance at the Maison & Objets Paris Trade Fair: the Chubby Teddy with the Eiffel Tower.

As KALOO is, above all, a brand which speaks to young children and older children with a message of gentleness, it was fully consistent that it wanted to support and provide comfort and tenderness to babies and children living with a congenital heart defect.
