Imagine being able to quickly and easily transform any room into a magical scene that will engage your child’s imagination and fuel their creativity-now you can! Pop and Lolli is a new company launched in October of 2010 specializing in high quality re-stickable, eco-friendly, designer wall decals. Pop and Lolli is set to ignite the world of children’s decor with their modern designs, quirky illustrations and modern color palette.
Mia is the creative mind behind Pop and Lolli and I caught up with her via email to ask a couple of questions about what inspires her to create & to fill us in about her recent trip to South Africa. Mia was there making the first charitable distribution as part of Pop and Lolli’s (it’s) chic 2 change social responsibility program. Her answer is a great example of how having a social component to your business can inspire community, meaningful change and creativity too!
Mia: For every set of Pop & Lolli experience design decals purchased, (it’s) chic 2 change provides educational materials and resources to positively influence South African children in need. We recently visited South Africa and made our very first charity distribution. Born and raised in South Africa, I have always wanted to give back, and decided it was the ideal opportunity to realize a life long dream and incorporate my very own charity, (it’s) chic 2 change, along with the launch of Pop & Lolli. We aspire to help children in need, and are partnering with a wonderful South African charity, I Am Changing The World, as they have their finger on the pulse and know exactly what and where the needs are. The other bonus, and chic 2 change requirement, is that 100% of our donated dollars get applied to the children in need, and nothing is wasted on admin and other 3rd party fees!
We are proud to say our very first charity distribution influenced 800 high school students from Illenge High in Vosloorus, Gauteng, SA. Our donation helped them build a school hall so they can assemble under a roof and be warm during the icy cold winter months. We have ensured a safe environment in classrooms by re-installing electrical wires which previously were dangling exposed right next to the kids! And we were able to put doors on classrooms which didn’t have any. We are also working towards upgrading/installing extra bathrooms, provide food boxes, and many other things. There will always be a need, and we are happy to help facilitate change!
Mia sent me a sample of her decals to review and they are every bit as easy to use and fantastic as they claim to be! I am excited to offer you all a 10% discount off of your Pop and Lolli order until the end of January by using the code OMHG10 at checkout.Be sure to send us photos of your decals in action!
Mia is also giving away a set of Tweetie Birdie wall decals featuring 16 adorably chic fabric birds valued at $67USD.

Blooming Blossoms is my favorite. I would use it in our classroom at school. I liked them on FB too cute wall decor!
Love it! Especially the trees. Those sweet birds would look terrific in my daughters’ room.
Love the Magical Desert tree stickers.
Where the Wild Things Grow (the apple tree with the counting numbers) is just so perfect for a playroom or my little guy’s nursery. All of the designs are just gorgeous! Great find.
I’ve been holding out for some truly unique vinyl clings for my daughter’s room, and this is it! My favorites are the Desert Trees and Birdies. We just went camping at Joshua Tree and the little fluffy birds hanging around our campsite fascinated our 4 year-old 🙂

I love the border with all the little dress up girls!
I LOVE the Fantasy Forest Critters!

I’ve been looking high and low for wall decals that are not ugly. We are Expats and move a lot – and we often are not allowed to paint or wallpaper the houses we rent. Wall stickers are the perfect solution – and now I found some that I love! But oh, the choices! The desert trees are lovely. But so it everything else!
These are magical! I think I will need the forest animals for my grandson’s room and the trees of wisdom and knowledge for my Head Start classroom! I am especially happy to read about the charity work, too. All good wishes to you.
Oh My! How could I ever choose JUST ONE!??! I absolutley LOVE the Noah’s African Circus characters, and the Enchanted Forest Trees, and the Fun Times Playful Accessories, are by far my top favorite. But I love them all! I would transform my 3month old and 2 year old rooms into something totally AWESOME!
I like the tweetie birdies! We just refinished our basement so we can have a play area down there for my daughter and these would really spruce up the place! 🙂
I’m a pop and lolli facebook fan now too. 🙂
my 5 yr old daughter and i were checking out this fabulous shop and decided our favorites are the jiving jungle pals and the tweetie birdies! These would look perfect in our playroom.

I love your decals they are way too cute. I’d love to win one for my little mans new room. They are so unique. My fav would have to be the fantasy forest critters.
wow! All of these decals are so adorable! I just want them all. I can’t wait to have a child’s room to decorate, but honestly I think these could be used even in a fun adult space. I would love to have these birdies for my art studio!

Oh goodness. If I had the budget I would get the all animal sets and mix it with the tree sets and let the kiddies go wild!
Love the tree of knowledge! I’d transform the little space under the stairs that we carved out when we redid the basement.

oh my goodness… are you kidding me?!? those are amazing! my favorite are the gorgeous enchanted forest trees (with a close second for magical desert trees), but my daughter would flip over a room filled with blooming blossoms, design divas or tweetie birdies. really precious.
These are so sweet. I have a baby boy whose room we haven’t done a thing to yet. I think the birds would be a cute idea for his room and the blooming blossoms would look adorable in my daughters room

I am loving the enchanted forest trees and the jungle pals 🙂 !!!
I really like the Noah’s African circus!
LOVE IT! We are moving and are lucky enough to be able to have a dedicated play room. This will be perfect for it! Facebook fan as well!
I love, love, LOVE these! My son, who just turned 2 yesterday is really interested in owls these days. I would get the bird set for him AND the trees so that we could transform his baby bedroom into a boys room.

Wow! These are fabulous!!! And while I’m in love with many of the designs, I think my favorite part is the Chic 2 Change…it always pleases me to see how creatively others can find ways to help those around them! Way to go Pop & Lolli! (oh yea, and thanks for the chance to win some of your treasures! I’d use them to help spruce my creative space, my sewing room! and I might possibly share a couple with the kiddos!) 😉
