About Earthslings

Sam Pearson has been hip to babywearing for decades. She started sewing pouch slings 21 years ago after the birth of her first baby. Over twenty years years later, this homeschooling mama from Sydney, Australia has turned her passion for connection into a thriving work from home venture. Sam is the mama behind Earthslings, where you can find baby carriers for yourself, your child, and even your child’s dolls (among other fabulous products).

Sam began sewing slings with her own newborn nestled in her sling either happily playing, feeding or sleeping. That baby is now a big teen who is very helpful with Sam’s business and her younger children.

Sam’s knack for sewing naturally translated into designing products for mothers and children. As a work at home mama, Sam can relate to parents who want to enjoy snuggling with their babies, but who also need to work.

And she doesn’t just design carriers with mothers in mind – Sam says she loves making slings for fathers and grandparents; she likes the thought of babies being worn by many family members. And of course she loves to hear feedback from parents who have found the slings have revolutionized their lives. (She often wonders how mothers who don’t own a baby carrier cope!)

My readers will be happy to learn that all of Sam’s products are handcrafted from eco-friendly 100% natural fabrics.

Where possible, she harvests material from vintage clothing and upcycles them into her original designs, many of which are one of a kind, and all of which are vegan friendly. Her products are machine stitched and finished by hand.

And it is always good to support a fellow mama!

About the Attached Family Doll Set

Sam sent me an adorable attached family doll set to review. Sam will create a miniature doll family to match the unique composition of your own – whether that is mama/baby, mama/mama/baby, mama/papa/baby, papa/papa/baby, papa/baby, etc. Our family includes a mama, a papa, and a baby (and now that I type that out, I realize I should have requested a big brother!).

The dolls can be played with in endless ways.

All the pieces can be removed, and the little babies can be worn by either parent on their back or front, or the dolls can be played with separately.

The faces are sewn without a lot of detail so the dolls can have any expression the child imagines.

I requested bright, cheerful colors – if you have special requests, Sam will do her best to accommodate you.

The dolls’ bodies are soft and just the right size for little hands to grip and little mouths to explore. Ailia loved hers!


You can purchase your own attached family dolls – or many other doll styles (including rag dolls and sweet bunnies) at Earthslings’ Etsy shop. The family Sam sent me is valued at $32 (US); other dolls start around $20.

And just for Natural Parents Network and Code Name: Mama readers, Earthslings is giving a 10% discount on all orders from now through December 31, 2012. Enter code KIDS2012 during the ordering process.
