Templeton's - We have a name!

You may remember a little while ago Petit participated in a major gift basket for Templeton in USA, by donating our Petit Amour "Hadas" cologne for girls, who were looking for a new name for one of their products.
Thanks to many entrants and their creative thinking Templeton's now have a new name.

It's the Heirloom Bijou Bracelet!

To view the winner and the gift basket please visit

Below is the press release announcing the new name.



CHARLESTON, S.C., SEPTEMBER 28, 2009—The owners of Templeton’s - Timeless Infant Silver have proudly announced they’ve given up the binky.When corporate giant Playtex issued a cease and desist warning to sisters Neyle and Rhett Templeton for using the term “binky” in the name of their signature piece—a sterling silver pacifier holder that adapts to a mother’s bracelet—the sisters quickly organized a national contest to rename the product.

Thanks to Jee Youn Fickling of Charleston, whose name entry was selected from among several hundred entries received after the contest formally began on Aug. 7, Templeton’s has a new, more sophisticated name for what was formally called the Heirloom Binky Bracelet: the Heirloom Bijou Bracelet.Fickling, who has a degree in French, suggested using the word “Bijou” because it is French for jewelry, “an item to be adorned,” explained Rhett Templeton. “We think it’s perfect, and beautiful too, just like the bracelet,” she said.

As the Grand Prize Winner, Fickling will receive a large basket stuffed with “Infant to Mommy” Products donated by clients of the PR and Marketing Company Baby Swags, which places “mompreneur” creations in swag bags for celebrities. The basket had been on display in Charleston children’s boutique Jackson Madeleine - Classics for Children, where the formal contest winner announcement was just filmed.

"This contest could not have been possible without all of the support from the mompreneurs who donated to our gift basket and helped promote our contest," Templeton said. “I'm still so baffled by all of the support that we have received, and the bonds that we have created with all of these women.”

The Templetons not only received basket donations from the U.S., but from Australia and Canada as well.

A list of stores that sell the Heirloom Bijou Bracelet, and an online store, can be found at

Congratulations to Templeton's.

Agoo Australia

I was lucky enough to have won a $100 gift voucher from the on-line store Agoo Australia. Well the items I had chosen arrived today and all I can say is WOW!!!!!

The items that I had chosen from the store are the Girl's Long Sleeve Raglan and matching Squirt in White & Pink.

Both products are of exceptional quality and very fashionable for the little fashionistas. The material feels so soft and my daughter loved them. I recommend these outfits for any little girl or boy. Especially whilst playing outside or even doing sporting activities as these have a UPF rating of 30+.

I would like to thank Alison and Susan from Agoo Australia and congratulate them for introducing a niche product to the Australian market.

Great feedback!!!!!

It is always great to receive positive feedback from our customers regarding our products.

"I wanted to share something with you about one of your products, the Petit Enfant Milk Cream - I purchased a bottle as E has really sensitive skin and we have to be really careful about the creams/soaps etc that we use so that his skin doesn't dry out. Especially with swimming lessons! So I thought that I would buy this one and give it a try... and I am so glad that I did. We have been using the cream daily and it's been fantastic - I honestly mean fantastic! No dryness at all and it''s returned to it's lovely silky smooth self."

"When my daughter went into grade 3 at school, her teacher suggested to all the children that it was time for them to learn about personal hygiene, and Yes that meant wearing deodorant, so as any mum would do, took her off to the supermarket and picked out the brand that I thought would be the most suitable for her delicate underarms. After about a week I noticed Jada walking around with her arms out, and when I asked her what was wrong, she said her underarms were hurting, after investigating I noticed her arm pits were heavily inflamed. She was most upset when I told her she would have to stop wearing the deodorant; she was very upset and thought she would be in trouble with her teacher. I am so glad we came across your products Petit Australia, your tween deodorant is great for her very sensitive skin, and she loves it. Her underarms have not been inflamed at all, and she feels very confident going to school wearing deodorant that doesn’t hurt.. Great product and we will definitely be back for more. Thank you"
Kind Regards

Thank you!!!!!
