‘Tis the season to share and spread love!
Celebrate our season of cheer with new friends for all to share. Come and discover your flavor…
Ishababies® “flavors” help us to move beyond standard categories and focus on the individual characteristics that makes each of us unique.
Our objective in creating “flavors” was to give us a vehicle which embraces each of those origins in all their variations without limitation. Ultimately, our wish is to have every Ishababies® character be compelling for all people-no matter what their “flavor”. [Read more…]
Ishababies® are the wonder-filled characters that help children realize the possibilities, beauty and values in themselves and the diverse world around them. We are all connected. What happens locally affects us globally. While Individuality is something to be celebrated. It is the singular contributions that we make in the larger world that are most essential . By appreciating the many facets of their individual flavors, Ishababies® express their own unique take on the world and teach children that they should be valued for who they are.
