by press and influencers
The Playtime Team loves seeing amazing partnerships being formed and strengthened as we wander the aisles of The Big Small Shows. These relationships are how our community has become so strong and continues to grow, which is why we can hardly wait to see what new connections will be made at the upcoming winter editions in Paris and New York! To tide us over until then, let’s flashback to the brands the press and influencers that attended Playtime Paris in July 2022 couldn’t get enough of!
“Some of my favorite brands this season were Joey Paris, La Petite Collection, Les Petits Inclassables, Lison Paris, Petite Lucette, Studio Boheme, Loir, and Poudre Organic. I was able to interview each of them to learn more about their brand and their new collections on display at the show, which was incredible!
Be sure to watch the full interviews on @pirouetteblog or @iloveplaytime Instagrams!”
“We had an amazing time exploring the summer edition of Playtime Paris! Some of the brands that caught my eye were The New Society, Tocoto Vintage, Paade Mode, The Campamento, Suuky, Letter to the World, Lama Palama, M’A Kids, Maison Tadaboum, Bonmot, and Stapelstein.”

“It was my second time visiting Playtime Paris, and it is always so inspirational and exciting to be here! This show seems even bigger than the winter edition, and I love meeting illustrators again like Blanche Daramir. My favorite brands at this show include Daily Brat, who’s designs I find so cute! I love that their collections are unisex and full of happy colors. I always like Cos I Said So, Wander & Wonder, and The Campamento. Tom & Boy, Studio Noos, and Claude & Co also caught my eye!”
“There was so much to discover at Playtime Paris! Two brands that really stood out to me this season were Spring Court and Senger Naturwelt. I loved seeing one of my favorite brands from the last edition as well, KOKO Cardboards!”
“I had so many crushes this season! If I had to choose just a few, I loved the collection by Loir Paris, who is a classic French brand with timeless designs. I also loved C’era una volta for their refined style. The New Society, Arsene et les pipelettes, and Bebe Organic also had amazing collections on display.”
“This was my first time at Playtime Paris, and I found it to be such an inspiring show! I met some brands that I was already familiar with, like Belle Chiara who showed an incredible collection inspired by Greece, and The New Society who always has such beautiful color palettes. I also met new brands like Caramel, Paade Mode, Minikane, Gnomo Magic Factory, and Sonatina.”
“I loved coming to Playtime Paris again! YEYE was one of my favorites again, and I loved discovering the brands Mini Kyomo, P Denim, and Sticky Lemon. The new collections by Maison Mangostan, Wander & Wonder, The Nice Fleet, Holi and Love, and Maison Tadaboum were lovely as well!”
“My first experience here has been amazing! It’s exciting, even a bit overwhelming. I’ve been able to see a lot of brands that I’ve followed for a while, as well as discovered new ones. One of my new favorites I’ve found is Tom & Boy. I love the embroidery, the fabrics, and the fluidity of the silhouettes. The collections are ethically made, and I love that it’s very gender neutral. I can imagine putting my son or my daughter in the pieces, which I like! I loved the collection from The New Society that was full of gingham, as well as those from The Campamento, Arsene et les pipelettes, and C’era una volta.”
“I had such a great time selecting the brands to be featured in the New Now space at this edition of Playtime Paris! Of course, I loved all of them, and was so excited to meet the designers behind them in person at the show. Aside from the New Now brands, I loved Suuky and Cos I Said So’s new collections, they really stood out to me this season.”
We can’t wait for the next edition of Playtime Paris and Playtime & Kid’s Hub New York, where more press and influencers will connect with brands both familiar and new! Brands, be sure to save your spot at the upcoming shows before applications close!
