Lalizou ❤ German family business of parents for parents!
Sustainability, quality and transparency
Nowadays these properties are very important and in demand in many industries, especially for products for babies or children. The customer wants to know who is behind the product. The developers of the exclusive Lalizou, that's us: Marie & Mounir, our daughter Liva, our sons Lasse & Mats and our dog Linus. We are a couple since 2006 and married since 2014. We are living in Germany, in the middle of a special and beautiful area called "Ruhrgebiet". As a family business and also as parents, it is important for us to say that the points of sustainability, quality and transparency are extremely important, which is why we have established these as guidelines for Lalizou and the entire team.
It began in Norway in August 2015 Together with our dog Linus and equipped with tent & backpack we had a wonderful holiday. As fate would have it, we met a family on a campsite who had a Swedish baby nest to sew themselves.
Inspired by this idea, Marie used - now back home and pregnant - her creativity, her sewing skills and her knack for stylish design and designed her own nest for our daughter.
Through that we unconsciously laid the cornerstone for the development of the Lalizou. Because we received so much positive feedback from other people when we had the nest "in use" everywhere on a daily basis, we couldn't help developing the idea further. It was clear to us: We wanted to give all parents the opportunity to make their everyday life with a baby easier with such a nest. So we decided to develop a marketable product.
Since the idea which started in Norway, we have been continuously working on the further development of the Lalizou for almost three years now. Because we also want the best for our children and we would like to offer our costumers the same. Only these long testing phases and experiences with Liva and Lasse and the nest in use rounded off the development.
At no point in time we have made compromises in functionality, quality and design. And the result is a product that we can recommend to other parents with a clear conscience. It is unique in its broad functionality and captivates with a modern yet timeless look. The Lalizou combines a baby nest, a baby lounge, a motor skills trainer, a sleeping aid, an aid for laying the baby down and much more.
Our special way to the Lalizou
Lalizou? Why that name?
We are often asked how the name "Lalizou” crossed our mind. Many parents know the German lullaby “La Le Lu - nur der Mann im Mond schaut zu”! It still helps our daughter go to sleep every day. Since this song has accompanied us throughout the entire development phase, we have taken it as inspiration for the naming of Lalizou:
We used the first syllables of Lasse’s and Liva’s names and as a final rounding the first syllable of our surname. LAsseLIvaZOU…, for us harmonious, special and easy to remember.
