Announcement    Gogo and Martin is a new brand for kids. We are imagination outfitters. Everything we make is designed to inspire kids and those who love them to see stories all around. Kids who learn to craft a story become kids who can see possibility in every encounter. Kids who see possibility become problem-solvers. They become world-builders and fixers of broken things. They become inventors and engineers of tomorrow.

Kids learn through play, by modelling what they see and creating their own world around them. We make tools for boundless imaginations -- tools that help children learn to tell their own stories, because we believe those stories can shape the future. Play well!

About

What Imagination Can Do

Gogo and Martin were my son Max's first imaginary friends. They were two little monsters that lived in the wall behind an invisible door. I would watch Max chase after them as they would make a shy appearance, then disappear behind a corner by the time he brought me over to see.

As a designer and educator, I was fairly certain of the importance of imagination in being able to think your way out of a problem. But it wasn’t until I began to watch the way my son would engage with this kind of imaginative play that I started to understand what a critical piece of the puzzle it is in the way kids begin to understand and learn about the world around them. I decided to try and help foster this natural curiosity about the world by designing toys and accessories that encourage imaginative play.

Gogo and Martin is a new brand for kids. We are imagination outfitters. Everything we make is designed to invite children to tell their own stories about what they see. Stories are the way we understand and explain what we see around us. For children, stories shape their world. Imagine how powerful you can be if you can tell that story yourself...
