(PRWEB) Aug. 1, 2005 -- BABY EMPORIO LLC, (www.babyemporio.com) the European-inspired infant and toddler gift company founded in 1996 by Clasina Valkenberg, has launched a new web site to streamline ordering for wholesale customers at www.babyemporiowholesale.com. The new site is easy to maneuver with new graphics, clear product descriptions and brief instructions on how to order the company’s popular trademarked products including the Ookie® Baby’s First Doll, Kammi™ Teether Doll, SOOTHYS™ Satin-Backed Blankets and the stylish, newly introduced MyFancyCover™ Shopping Cart Covers.

Remembering how the company began with its first product, Ookie® Baby’s First Doll, Valkenberg says, “My little 17-month-old niece, Desanne, came to visit from Holland clinging to a well-worn, elf-like cloth doll that she carried with her day and night.” Desanne’s mother then told Valkenberg that many European babies receive such a doll at birth. The new mom holds the doll close to her own skin for a night or so and her scent transfers onto the doll’s flannel fabric. Knowing that babies love having mom's scent nearby, Valkenberg was intrigued by the mom and baby bonding concept and created her own version of her niece’s ‘best friend’ and called it Ookie® -- after her niece’s nickname, ‘Ukkie’, which means "Little One" in Dutch. “We like to call Ookie® 'Baby’s First Doll' because it’s perfect for newborns who want to have mom near all of the time!” Valkenberg continued.

From it’s humble beginnings of being packaged in plastic bags for sale at craft fairs, Ookie® now headlines a growing list of BABY EMPORIO infant and toddler gifts that are sold in over 300 specialty stores, boutiques, hospital gift shops and many etailers throughout the US, Canada, Australia and Europe—including www.babyemporio.com.
