We're a small team of doers and dreamers who handcraft our products from start to finish on our 13 acre homestead in rural southwestern Minnesota. 

We're driven by an appreciation for meaningful handmade gifts, a love of Mother Earth and sustainable living, and the simple joys of life through the eyes of children. And we believe that childhood is more about creative learning and experiences through play and less about all. the. stuff. 

Our team is a combination of on-site employees who create, personalize, and ship our products and remote contractors specializing in marketing, sales, and design.

We're growing, and we invite introductory hellos from like-minded creatives. We welcome self-starters, optimists, organizational wizards, craftsmen, and designers looking for a fast-paced, casual, and fun work environment. A willingness to learn and tackle challenges is a must.



No current openings. 

If you're excited (and serious) about joining our team when we're hiring next, please email your cover letter and resume to kathleen<at> and we'll keep your info on file for the future.
