Our Story

“Whether they’re expressing their creativity or pretending to be a princess or superhero, kids love to use their imaginations. It’s through imagination that we learn to solve problems. It’s through problem solving that we recognize our strengths and superhero selves. An imaginative child is an empowered child.” – Karen Bonnici

When my children were young, imaginative creative play, comfort, and confidence building were paramount in our home. Cuddling and cozying under a blanket to hear a story or to share a hug was also a nightly occurrence. Through love, stories, and childhood play they grew to be strong, capable and confident adults.

I am now the proud mother of two adults, both young professionals, who continue to grow in confidence and expand their worlds. They still have plenty of hugs for me and I am profoundly proud of the two amazing people they have become.

While raising my children I had the wonderful opportunity to work as a professional storyteller, musician, and teaching artist. Through my observations and experiences it is clear to me that what our children need now, more than ever, is comfort, confidence building, imagination, and creative play. When we teach our children to help others, believe in their own strength, and be super kids they grow in confidence and goodness. Our Super Blanky® products reaffirm the superhero in every child.

As a young mother I sewed costumes and collected creative play toys for my children. They loved to dressup and engage in role play as the hero and heroin as all children do. In 2011 I created Super Blankys® for my small nieces and nephew in order to give them the gifts of imagination, comfort and empowerment. They absolutely loved their superhero blankets and soon after people began to ask when I was going to create and sell Super Blankys®.

 

It wasn’t long before I began making and selling my products by hand and I’ve been imagining super things ever since! Super Blanky® products are now manufactured and available in Target® stores nationwide and at target.com with the same philosophy I used to raise my children: Cuddle them, teach them kindness and to be helpful to others, give them the plenty of imaginative playtime, the confidence to solve problems, and they will grow to be super kids!

Adults love to be superheroes too. I wear my own adult sized Super Blanky® at my desk to remind myself I am strong, powerful, and totally capable of making my super dreams come true!

Super Blanky® is a proud American company with super things ahead of us. Follow and explore with us as we soar to new heights!
