Who are we?
* Makers * Moms *

Made by moms on the move for kids on the go, kittd toys are creative, unplugged activities in tins! Packed in a travel-ready tin (4 1/4” x 3 1/8” x 1”), they fit in a pocket, purse, or backpack, so they’re a great grab-and-go option, anywhere you need to wait with kids!

Inside each tin is a self-contained activity, designed to spark a child’s creativity and keep them entertained and screen-free, wherever they are. About the size of a phone, kittd’s travel toys are packed with unplugged creativity to keep kids busy any time, anywhere.

kittd (pronounced kit-ted) also provides jobs for stay at home parents returning to the workforce. Kristie is a graphic designer by training, and Maria is a clinical social worker. Neither of us wanted to return to our original fields full-time, so we decided to start our own company.
We're based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, although we're not native Iowans. We're proud of our community, our little workshop, and the products we create.  


 Based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, kittd is the brainchild of Kristie VanGorkom and Maria Sanchez-Masi. We founded kittd in 2015.
