All items are original designs by Lora Jakobsen, me. I started Zookies, a children's gift company in 1999. I invented the original chalkboard t-shirt and followed with a chalk lunch box and chalk placemat, for which I won numerous awards. We currently wholesale to prestigious stores such as Barney's New York and the DeYoung Museum, as well as top catalogs Uncommon Goods and Leaps and Bounds amongst others in the US and around the globe. Being an artist, I truly believe that art is a vital part of development for any child. Art, coming in many forms, should be explored and discovered everyday at school and home. All of Zookies products are made to inspire creativity and help guide children to use the right side of their brain, making them a well rounded person as they grow up.
