Small Shop Spotlight // Dylbug

Hello, I'm Leslie Mingo, the founder of Dylbug, a design firm specializing in personalized products for little ones. Combining my love of cooking with my children and my graphic design talents I have created Dylbug Dress Up plates, cutters + placemats. With these products my goal is to make healthy food fun for kids to eat. My most popular style is the Little Me - Dress Up. It's a personalized plate designed to look like your child, it comes ready to dress up with a clothing cutter, making their food fashionable. 

My plates with a miniature child and matching clothing cutter have been a huge success in getting my little ones excited about eating healthy. Coming home from school for an afternoon snack, my children cannot be grumpy being greeted by a strawberry tutu or carrot pants on a miniature version of themselves. I love to watch their creativity at work, two banana buttons become earrings, an earring is eaten and the other becomes a nose. There is nothing better than hearing, “Mom, I need more raspberries for my shoes.” With the clothing cutters my children can easily cut out a watermelon dress or a sandwich shirt and pants, perfectly sized for the Little Me on their plate.

As a mother it has been very rewarding to create new food fashion for my little ones, I know it makes them happy and healthy. Dylbug Dress Up products are used and loved in our home and I have seen the joy it brings to other moms around the globe.
