Kris says: Poketti Plushies with a Pocket are designed by my 14-year old daughter, Sydney Loew, after being inspired by her 7th grade entrepreneurial project.
She loved the idea of making something and selling it, so she convinced us to turn her product into a real business. Sydney drew up the characters, and explained that the back pocket could hold a cell phone, a notebook, eyeglasses, or tooth fairy offerings — the important things you need by your bed while you sleep. With dozens of other stuffed toys on your bed, you’ll know just where to find that something special in the morning!
As a graphic designer, I loved the simple and iconic animal designs, and my husband, a product designer, loved that the back pocket made it functional. We kicked off with a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise money for professional manufacturing.
