We are two moms – cousins through marriage and really good friends!  Located in Toronto, Canada one of the most diverse cities in the world, we decided to partner up and open a business that caters to babies, toddlers and children! And yes – our names are really Mel and Nel. 

Our inspiration started with a single item – the Baby’s Best Friend Snuggly™ and grew into a desire to provide children with their own market of #littleluxuries™, to cherish and grow with.  Our product range includes custom and handmade goods, as well as, clothing and accessories that are trendy and affordable. 

Most importantly, we wanted to create a brand and business that gives back. So we’ve chosen to have Ronald McDonald House Charities Toronto as our main charity.  From every item sold MEL & NEL donates 10% of proceeds to RMHC Toronto.  Therefore, when you purchase any of our items; you can feel great knowing you are helping to make a difference in another child’s life!
