Caring for our planet

Not only do our designs celebrate our extraordinary natural world, but they help care for it too. We carefully produce all our products and packaging with only the best quality, sustainable and environmentally friendly materials.

Our children's picture books are printed in the UK on 100% sustainably sourced, Carbon Balanced paper in association with World Land Trust.

All our fabric products are made from 100% sustainable and organic cotton.

Doing our bit

Bespoke design

Our family-run design studio is always looking for new ways to bring weird and wonderful creatures to life.


Since producing our first children's picture book in 2021, we have been busy creating a range of environmentally-friendly accessories, featuring illustrator Jill Michelle Smith's beautiful artwork. These unique, colourful designs are perfect for inspiring your little explorer's inquisitivity and imagination. 


As a small business, all of our products are lovingly hand-finished to order.

Many of which, are also customisable with the design of your choice. 

If you would like to stock our products, request a bespoke design or work with the design team at Dodo and Dinosaur® on an upcoming project, please don't hesitate to get in touch - we'd love to hear from you!
