I recently came across a product that was created by a local family that I couldn't help but share with all of you. Halie Fulton, a Mom located in Sarasota, FL, created a line of super cool pillow toys called Dream Frenz. Halie was inspired to create them from the unique drawings of her oldest daughter. Check out the full story below of how the Dream Frenz came to be and where to buy them. I thought this was a great story to share because I think it's so great that the family worked together to develop the product line and now these Dream Frenz are being purchased and loved by children all over. How cool!
The Dream Frenz Story
Dream Frenz was started by mom-entrepreneur Halie Fulton, and draws on the inspiration from Halie’s oldest daughter’s childhood drawings of playful characters with big heads, and tiny bodies. As a quartet, Halie and her 3 daughters, who hail from Sarasota, FL, are involved in every aspect of our fun friends’ development. The mother and daughters team also work together at an organic tree orchard near their home in FL, as well!
There are a variety of Dream Frenz to choose from in the collection. From “Pretty Pink Penelope” to “Ray Wears a Red Cap”, these multicultural characters each have their very own backstory, with some characters designed to appeal to boys and some to girls. What’s also cool is that we’re finding that tween kids, especially girls, are really gravitating to DreamFrenz for sleepovers, summer camp, and for journaling! Older kids really get into the whole storytelling aspect that DreamFrenz can inspire, as well as getting use out of it as a pillow, while young kids find them to be a really fun and comforting friend/toy/sleepytime aid.
Since Dream Frenz have bodies that can be tucked away, they are ideal for fun trips to the park, beach and then right back home. Parents no longer have to worry about remembering to bring toys, stuffed animals and a pillow for their little ones - Dream Frenz are all three!
