Best Brand: Philly & Friends
Philly & Friends, a children’s lifestyle brand that aims to add a drop of colour in the sea of children’s books, toys and products. We create beautifully illustrated keepsake books, wall art, and affirmation cards designed to instil confidence in our little ones. Each book sold sponsors a book into the hands of an underprivileged child.
Our debut book, Who Do I See in the Mirror? was featured by Hello! Magazine as one of the best 15 books on diversity. Also featured on BBC, Metro, Huffington Post, The Strategist UK (Black Owned Businesses to Support), Leading Ladies Africa.
We recently won The Breakthrough Fund organised by The Break Social to support women led businesses with winning the 1st prize out of over 2500 applications.
Since launching Philly & Friends, I have had the opportunity to speak on parenting and diversity in children’s books, been on BBC radio, Premier Radio and published articles in reputable outlets such as HuffPost and Mother Mag.
