Hello, thank you for stopping by!
Cofi Coo are a children’s homewares brand that specialises in contemporary Quillow’s
First things first… what is a Quillow??
A Quillow is essentially a blanket that folds neatly away into a cushion. Our unique Quillows are story-telling activity blankets enabling children to ignite their imagination, promote restful sleep and learn responsibility.
We have specifically created and designed our Quillows to be multi purpose so they are also used as play mats, floor mats, comfort blankets, travel blankets, cushions, pillows and activity mats.
Using our characters as the beginning of exciting adventures, we give children the opportunity to explore the boundaries of their imagination by putting them in charge of creating their own stories.
Our Quillows are a perfect play time accessory for every child as it encourages their imagination and provides limitless entertainment…by themselves or with you!
About Us – The Cofi Coo Story
Whilst moving with the fast pacing digital era, Cofi Coo holds the traditional values of fun learning, creativity and imagination. We provide the opportunities for children explore ideas, visualise stories and create adventures; as these are key drivers in a child’s cognitive development.
Cofi Coo is an award-winning company, based in Birmingham, West Midlands. It is owned and run by Ammara and Alina who are sisters.
“Our Mum made and bought home a traditional Quillow when we were younger and we loved the idea. We were reminiscing one day and decided that we wanted to create a modern Quillow. Our market research with parents identified a lack of original and modern designs and characters for children in the UK for blankets and cushions. They wanted something that was different from the ‘old school’ cartoon characters, repetitive animal prints…or pink for girls and blue for boys”“So we created a prototype and that’s how Cofi Coo Quillows and the characters Space Bots, Candy Rain and Cofi Coo were ‘born’…out of demand and feedback”
“We love characters ourselves and love coming up with more crazy character ideas so we have a long way to go with the business!!” Ammara and Alina
Our Quillow and Activity Blanket Collection
At Cofi Coo we have meticulously designed our Quillows to ensure that they ignite imagination and creativity in children thus encouraging them to create endless stories. Children use them as activity blankets, play mats, travel blankets and they’re great for making dens!
