Toddler with doddl toddler spoon, fork & knife cutlery set

Our purpose

The power of independence

We solve every-day problems to make parents lives easier, whilst giving children the very best chance to fulfil their potential.

We believe that unleashing independence in every child starts with feeding, the first major milestone. So we've combined deep child development insights with advanced design and engineering to create innovative feeding tools that intuitively teach children to eatindependently in minutes on their own – no need for parent intervention. And at doddl, we think that really matters, because for a child, ‘I can do it!’ is powerful, and the confidence it instils creates the foundations for them to blossom and grow into inspired adults who have the ability to inspire the world.
