A Tiny Spark to Ignite Their Imagination
You may be asking yourself, what's an Inkling? A weird, quirky and brightly colored character? Sort of. But at their core Inklings are imaginary friends. Our brand is driven by the characters in it, and each of our infant novels tells the story of how a baby imagines their own Inkling & best friend. Because as long as you have your imagination, you're never really alone.
Sparking Imagination & Creativity
What are Inklings? They are Imaginary Friends of course! We believe that when a baby's imagination is sparked at a young age their creativity will have no limits. We design Inklings to be bright, colorful & unique for just that reason.
The Real Mama Bears
Inklings is proud to partner with the Real Mama Bears. The Mama Bears is a network of groups, websites, special projects & resources dedicated to supporting, educating and empowering moms of LGBTQ kids and the LGBTQ Community. Their goal is to make the world a kinder, safer, more loving place for all LGBTQ people to live. The work they are doing is close to our hearts.
Our brand highlights diversity and celebrates the differences that make all children unique and special. Each baby in our infant novels is a different race, gender and family dynamic. By showcasing what makes us different our hope is to provide children with a strong foundation of embracing those differences and becoming future fighters against intolerance and hate.

We believe that when a baby's imagination is sparked at a young age their creativity will have no limits. We design Inklings to be bright, colorful and a bit weird for just that reason. We believe that gender specific toys are old news and that's why we designed Inklings with every child in mind. Inklings is founded on two fundamental ideas. The celebration of diversity starts in the nursery and as long as you have your imagination, you’re never really alone.
