The Hippo and the Donkey" is the story of a girl with a great need for creativity.
It all started when she was little and played with her friends with dolls. However, she didn't like dolls at all! Instead, she preferred to create clothes for the dolls from scraps she found in her mom's workshop and furniture like tables and beds with her dad's tools.

As the girl grew up and studied to become a kindergarten teacher, she played with children on the floor. She became a child again, laughed with all her soul, and loved with all her heart.

But her love for creation didn't stop there; in the afternoons, she was back in her mom's workshop. Her mom taught her what it's like to love what you create and how an idea can become something wonderful.

Together, they made all sorts of things from a variety of materials.

The girl grew up and had two sweet children. Alcyone, whom she called "little hazelnut," and Theophanes, whom she initially called "little mammoth," but he’s now been asking to be called a bull-lion and a panther and a little monkey, and in general, he's 5 years old and hasn't decided what he likes best!

The girl painted a picture for Alcyone with dancing hippos and one for Theophanes with a donkey.

At this point, we want to explain why she chose this design. She chose it because she believed the little boy would be very special, and the donkey is an endangered species!

The girl became a woman and a mom, but she never forgot the need to create. She built her mom's workshop from scratch, filled it with dreams, hope, and a lot of creativity.

Now, she knew what she wanted to do... she wanted to create products for children. Like the ones she struggled to find or didn't satisfy her when her children were little, like the sleeping bag, or those that her children occasionally ask her to make, like the basket for the bike. Or, in general, anything that makes her heart beat fast and her mind never stop thinking.

This is her way to share her creativity and love for children with as many people as possible.
