Popsiebelle is an original, award-winning and a proudly South African product.
Our brand aims to inspire children to develop and grow their imaginations using the Popsiebelle characters as a platform. The goal is for children to create their own stories and worlds from our characters, thereby promoting creative thinking from a young age. We want children to not just consume, as is the norm these days, but rather to create, contribute and to continue developing their unbound imagination and creativity. We provide a few stories, but as a whole, your child will have ownership of the brand, they will dictate who Popsiebelle is and what the characters will become. We need a whole generation of children whose boundless imagination will create and become potential entrepreneurs, visionaries or anything they can imagine.
I imagine kind, imaginative and strong little people, growing each other.
My daughter, Sophie, is the inspiration for Popsiebelle. The only thing that I could not wait to hear was her voice; I knew all the little bits were there and in the right places, but what would she sound like?
Finally I got to hear it - her voice created Popsiebelle, her mispronunciation of words created many character names and her imagination has shaped the characters and stories we have told to each other. Her mispronunciation contributed to creating the Popsiebelle name, we were living in Canada and she used to call a popsicle a “poxibelle“ and so with a slight adjustment, the name Popsiebelle was born.
I am very blessed to be her mother and can never imagine what it would be like not to hear her voice.
So I thank her with all my heart for all the love and kisses I get from her and her wonderful and imaginative approach to life. I imagine she will do wonderful things with her voice.
This is Popsiebelle, she kind and smart and has wonderful adventures with all her friends. She has two special friends, they are her Sheep Shoes. On the LEFT - is She & on the RIGHT - Peep. They talk ALL the time, they continuously ask each other questions - for example:
Popsiebelle is sitting in her rocket ship treehouse and having to listen to their usual argument that rainbow is not a colour and that Peep eats too much candy.
She: "Of course rainbow is a colour, I love all the colours and I can't seem to choose one, so I choose rainbow as a colour, all the colours of the rainbow all in one."
Peep: "Rainbow is not colour you have to choose one, I love pink!"
She: "I did choose one - Rainbow!"
And so the discussions and question asking continues until candy is presented and then their mouths are to full to talk!
