Makers Market: Kemi Tignor
I founded Little Likes Kids™ because I wanted toy options for my son that reflected his and his friends’ experiences. As a mother, my job is to love, and sharing toys that include images and experiences that reflect my son is a way for me to show him he is loved. That I can’t fill his toy box and bookshelves with an appropriate mix of inclusive items is a lost opportunity for joy. I want to create a space where the only thing children know is joy. For my mother, loving gestures included scouring the aisles (beating back other women with her purse that one Christmas) to find dolls that looked like my sisters and me. While she and her girlfriends laughed off the energy it took to bring home those limited items that looked like and included their children, we believe there is no need for that sense of scarcity anymore. At Little Likes Kids™ we understand that no gifting moment should come and go without an opportunity to share items with your child that reflects who they are. So we create toys and playful images that reflect kids like my son and his wonderfully diverse gaggle of friends. I Created Little Likes Kids™ Because No One Else Did, For My Henry …And Yours.
