Announcement    We're working on a holiday shop update... stay tuned for some exciting new friends and some fun holiday decor!
We also made some fun masks for Halloween, which we've decided, isn't over yet! Skeleton, witch, dragon, robot and superhero are all in the shop. Our animal ears and headdresses also make great costumes, especially if you too believe that every day is a dress-up day...
And we still have a few more woodland animal mask sets, with more bears, foxes and fox ears on the way! Whether you're back to school or staying in the wild, stay safe, stay kind, and remember to play every day, friends.

Gogo and Martin is a new brand for kids. We are imagination outfitters. We believe that telling your own story means looking for possibility everywhere, because kids who can see possibility become problem-solvers, and world-builders and fixers of broken things. They don't wait to hear what happens tomorrow, they make it happen. We make tools for boundless imaginations. Where will yours lead you today?

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 already convinced about the importance of imagination in being able to think your way out of a problem. I would see it first hand in my university students struggling to move past road blocks in their design thinking. But it wasn’t until I got to watch my son at play that I started to see what a huge piece of the puzzle it is in the way we understand and learn about the world around us.

I decided to try and help foster this natural curiosity about the world by designing toys and accessories that encourage imaginative play, and started Gogo and Martin, 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.

Why do our stories matter?

We believe that stories help us understand and explain what we see around us, and for children, those stories are everything. And it turns out that telling a story is a lot like solving a problem: it uses the very same skills and depends entirely on imagination.

All great adventures begin with a story. We believe that kids who learn to tell their own stories learn to see possibility everywhere. They learn how to be problem-solvers, world-builders and fixers of broken things.

We make tools for boundless imaginations, because we believe that kids have a lot to teach us about the way their world should be. The best thing we can do is to hear them.
