kimmidoll® was created by The Aird Group in 2008 following a long standing passion with elegant, decorative gift and homewares items inspired by eastern culture. kimmidoll® is a family of contemporary doll characters based on the Kokeshi dolls that have been a Japanese cultural institution for over two centuries. Each doll is lovingly designed and represents one of ‘life’s true values” such as kindness, joy, happiness and respect. kimmidoll® junior followed the initial success, launching in late 2009 targeting 4-10 year old girls with dolls featuring fun, child orientated designs, cute names and their own delightful and playful personality.
kimmidoll® has attracted in excess of 16 million website hits in Australia alone and the doll and key chain sales are fast approaching 1 million units achieved exclusively through Australian gift and specialty retailers. Product licensed to date includes bath, body and home frasgrance, decorative tinware, drinkware, dress fabric and automotive accessories.
