Announcement   The inspiration for my designs come from my daughter, Erin and her friends that we are loved and surrounded by. Interacting with her each day through love, laugh and play have brought our designs to reality.

Our lap desks - one of a kind original design - are consistently our top seller. You won't be disappointed with the amount of fun your child can have with them!

My daughter asked for me her own crocheted stuffed animals and loveys, so I made them for her. Our crocheted dolls are a new line of products that give Erin and her friend's timeless inspiration for imaginative play. Perfectly fitting our motto of "inspired by the little, made by the mom," she suggests what to create, and I make it!

KidEssence is proud to be found in these following stores around the world!

Bought two of the magnetic with pocket travel trays for my four year old twins for a cross country road trip. They fit perfect in their laps while they are in car seats. Seller was super friendly and shipping was extremely quick! Love them! Thank you.

About

The Birth of Lap Desks, Crochet Loveys, and Felt Toys Perfectly Made for Travel

Living in a tiny NYC apartment when my daughter, Erin, was born proved to be a much bigger challenge than I first expected. With no room for exersaucers, jumperoos, infant swings, rock n' plays, bassinets, etc. I found it to only be increasingly harder as Erin got older to find toys that would entertain and teach her while keeping a decent size for the space we had. Toys were either too large or not good quality. I turned to look at travel items. I like how travel items are smaller and can be packed away. I still hit a road block with a small amount of options available, and the quality was not great with any product. That's when I decided to make my own.

Here, at KidEssence, you will find most everything fits into a standard sized backpack. Whether you choose to use it exclusively for travel or home, my felt boards, lap desks, chalkboards, crochet loveys and stuffed animals and dolls can all be easily tucked and stored away when not in use. Allowing your small space (or large) to stay organized and clean.

As my daughter grows, I continue to be inspired by her each day to continue to create and bring you new, beautiful, quality products your whole family will enjoy now and for many years to come.
