We are a leading children’s educational brand on a mission to promote early emotional learning. As family therapists and an educator, we saw a need for an intentional children’s brand that reinforces a positive attachment between children and their caregivers. Our stories use research-based techniques to teach little ones important social-emotional skills. Through pro-active and supportive narratives, each collection is intentionally crafted to build resilient, caring, and confident children.
Our business is the culmination of more than 20 years of friendship and a shared life passion for promoting early emotional learning. As mothers with backgrounds in family therapy and early education, we identified a need for intentional children’s products while on maternity leave together in 2016. Now we have the privilege of spreading the Slumberkins mission and preparing children to thrive in the modern world.
