About

Two generations of Wild Children creating goodies for the next one

"When I get up the guts to start you etsy shop..." was the beginning to many sentences between mom and me over the last few years. It took a very unprofitable (financially, luckily we always have a blast together) art faire, an auspicious tarot reading, and a very supportive husband to get me to finally take the leap and go for it!
Mom and I have been making things for ourselves and loved ones for our whole lives but it really took the birth of my daughter Kivrin and my sister's daughter Zoey to switch our craftiness into high gear as we worked to solve the problems of modern day motherhood. How do you support your child's natural creativeness and love for imaginative play in today's media saturated, electronic toy centric society? How do you express your artistic side in a time when a onesie with a kitten and a sassy saying across the front are the status quo? How do we use what we have readily available in creative ways or breathe new life into something we love and make it useful for the next generation? In our studios we try to answer these questions and our shop is the direct result of our love to create and share art!
We use only the best materials for kids and babies.
The softest silk for our play silks in the most beautiful nature inspired colors.
The most luxurious cottons for our dresses with fun playful details.
The gentlest sealant for our blocks so the littles gums can be soothed.
We love children and family life, we do our best to support the natural creative path for every wild child!

Welcome to our shop, thanks for stopping by! We are two generations of artists on a mission to bring the world the type of goodies we want surrounding our wild children (and grand children). We believe that a childhood well spent is one that focuses on a child's natural sensibilities and taste for creative play, our lines of "essential" items reflect that conviction. All items are made by hand with lots of love from natural materials.
We love what we do and we hope you do too!
