Anna Richardson & Meggie Hunley
Anna Richardson (Co-Creator and Author) and Meggie Hunley (Co-Creator and Illustrator) were first sisters before becoming business partners and Co-Creators of the SleeperHero book and doll. Anna was inspired to create the concept after struggling with transitioning her two older kids to their big kid beds. Her background in teaching Special Education played a role in introducing the doll to children with a storybook. She loved using books as a tool in her classroom and was confident a story could help her own kids with their predicament as well. She shared her idea with Meggie (a graphic designer) who immediately fell in love with the idea and the two set out to co-create the storybook and prototype. The sisters are consistently inspired by the overwhelmingly gracious responses they've received from happy customers. SleeperHero provides a fun solution to a universal problem, while also being a really unique and thoughtful gift for children and parents alike. When children learn to sleep better, everyone in the house sleeps better.
