Nominated for TAGIE 2014 "Young Inventor of the Year"
Sydney Loew was nominated this month for the Chicago Toy and Game Group's TAGIE Awards "Young Inventor of the Year." Her Poketti Plushies with a Pocket are both cute and functional with a creative solution for storing your phone or notebook as you sleep.

We are beyond excited about this honor, and thank everyone for their support by voting for Sydney at TAGIE. The awards ceremony will be at the Navy Pier in Chicago, IL on November...

Poketti Plushies are Here!
The Poketti Plushies with a Pocket happily arrived just days before Christmas! It was a long, long wait and we were so happy to get our pre-orders out and under Christmas trees across the USA -- and shipped out to countries around the world including Australia, England, Finland, Canada, and the Netherlands! The amazing thing is once people received our sweet pillows -- so many people contacted us to get MORE! We've been getting photos of happy "customers" from all of our friends -- and we look forward to spreading Poketti love far and wide!
