In HER words ::
Tiny giraffe is the perfect balance between my passion for creating and love of business. After graduating with a degree in economics, I worked in the music industry in performing rights by day, then managed indie artists and even hit the road with some big names by night. I was fascinated and excited by the music biz because it’s where the arts and business come together in a remarkable way.
With the birth of my first daughter, I made the decision to give up working in music to start my most exciting job yet: raising my children. I created tiny giraffe as an outlet for my creative and entrepreneurial energy. I opened my etsy shop in February 2009 on the very night my second daughter was born. I launched the shop, loaded the graphics, and just minutes later was on my way to the hospital to give birth. Crazy, yes, but that’s how I operate! Now, just two years later, tiny giraffe blocks are sold in baby boutiques both online and across the U.S. from NYC to LA. I’ve built lasting relationships with customers and just love that my blocks are the go-to baby gift for so many people.
Tiny giraffe is about non-toxic, eco-friendly toys for the modern tot that double as downright adorable nursery decor. We use only safe, kid-friendly materials, and each block is hand-sanded and sealed for durability. Among our most popular products are Farm and Zoo ABC Blocks, as well as Paper Doll Blocks. New to tiny giraffe are personalized drawstring bags to fit any set of blocks. They’re perfect for cleanup and storage, and each bag is hand-stamped with the lucky recipient’s name.
