How it works.
Each kit aims at building emotional intelligence (EQ) in children through creative play.
Not all stories have fairytale beginnings, in fact, our journey started in a hospital room. My daughter was diagnosed with an incredibly rare childhood disease requiring frequent hospitalizations, and as her mom, I was determined to make sure she was emotionally equipped for journey ahead. I wanted to teach her important life skills such as patience, forgiveness, resilience and self-confidence. I realized that the school curriculum didn't teach this, neither did the toy industry. Nobody was focusing on the emotional intelligence of kids- so I did.Read more As Featured On Business with Purpose Honored by The Tory Burch Foundation

"My grandson is a little engineer in the making and he can't stop talking about how professional he feels after building his excavator. He carries the experiment book around with him everywhere and will explain hydraulics to anyone that will listen! It's really quite impressive how much he's gotten out of this kit! " -Sasha S.STEAM KIT
"Ever since getting my son into origami I have seen an amazing improvement in his attention span. It's like this is the antidote to the ipad! I especially love how they stress mindfulness in a child-friendly way. It's important to teach kids how to slow down and focus so this kit is great." -Bryan W.ORIGAMI KIT
"This is my new go-to activity for my little ones when I am trying to get work done. I love the step by step pictures so they can follow the directions without my help. They are always SO excited to show me what they made all by themselves whether it was from the book or their own clay creation." - Kristin M.CLAY KIT
"I got this for one of my daughter's classmates and they have been on Zoom twice a week performing magic shows for the whole class. Even my daughter, who has always been pretty shy, learned a trick to perform for everyone! I think she will be getting her own magic set for her birthday!" - Stephanie T.MAGIC KIT
