  4. Lela is a unique and inspirational brand, providing character merchandise aimed at children of African and Caribbean descent. The brand was established in 2008 with the goal to inspire children from all walks of life, encouraging positive self-esteem. The name Lela is of Swahili origin, meaning black beauty.
    The idea was born when a proud father of a beautiful new born baby girl went out looking for something special to buy for his little princess. He came across a few items of merchandise for young girls with animated characters on them, none of which represented his daughter. After making this discovery he went home to his wife and expressed his disappointment. So using her creative flair they set out on a journey to develop a character that young African and Caribbean girls can relate to.
    The brand has just launched its new range of products for boys in order to meet customer demand, and they plan to continue expanding the range.
    “Our aim is for Lela to be an inspiration to children from all walks of life, encouraging them to feel good about themselves.”
