about us

Philly & Friends is a contemporary children's brand with purpose. It offers unique products that encourage confidence, self-love and diversity in our beloved children while supporting underprivileged kids around the world.

Inspired by my daughter whose nickname is Philly, I wanted to create a children’s character kids everywhere can love and identify with. One who is strong, confident and happy. One who goes on adventures, explores the world, laughs from within and loves wholeheartedly with tight hugs and lots of kisses.

Philly & Friends was born out of a desire to see children grow up to see beauty in themselves and to believe they can be anything they want to be.



Join us as Philly & Friends explore the world around them and all they encounter. Learning about themselves, surroundings and all the world has to offer their little hands and feet.

To achieve this, we have carefully designed children’s products to encourage imaginative thinking and exploration.

Our debut item is a Children’s picture book titled:

Who Do I See in the Mirror?

Our Debut picture BOOK



“There is only one me!”

As Philly looks at her reflection in the mirror, she realises that from her curly hair to her legs that love to dance, she is unique. But what makes her truly special is her good heart and curious mind. The important message conveyed is for children to love the skin they are in. It’s what you are on the inside that matters most. Specific to children who often have a hard time seeing themselves positively in the media and publications.
