Well throw your hands up in the air like you just don't care, dreamers!
Our CEO, Heather Rowland and Director, David Rowland have just been announced as Finalists in the Business News Australia Gold Coast Young Entrepreneur of the year Awards!
Heather and David are a husband and wife team who live on the Northern Gold Coast.
"I grew up on the Gold Coast and have loved seeing it evolve over the years to this amazing hub for entrepreneurs," said Heather. "There are so many cool brands and start-ups here that reflect the fun and energy that the Gold Coast is all about."
Speaking after the announcement, Heather said she is thrilled that their young business is being recognised, having experienced huge growth since it was launched in 2014.
"We started this business in our lounge room and now our products are sold in 38 countries around the world," she said. "From just four products we now have a complete, magical world we've created, that makes parenting fun!
"Our favourite part of this business is seeing those happy faces reading our book and cuddling our Kippins toys. We have this amazing community of parents that are connected to our story.
"Our dream is to bring magical, Kippiny moments to nap time," she said.
The Business News Australia Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award winners will be announced on November 3rd. Watch this space!
Far beyond the yawns, in the moments just before you fall asleep is a magical place called Kippi, and this coveted Australian brand is taking you there. Meet the Kippins – little friends to help babe change how they feel about naps – and the planet, too.
A wolf that wanders through a doorway to become a night-time sky of stars. A cat that enjoys warm milk and hugs with friends. A mouse whose job it is to switch on the light in the Kippi moon. These are just some of the wild and whimsical stories of the Kippins, a loveable group of characters you will recognise in the form of organic cotton cuddle blankies that pop up regularly on your Instagram feed.
Launching in 2014 from the lounge room of husband and wife team David and Heather Rowland, Kippins enjoyed a phenomenal first year - achieving sell out status several times - and just three years later the brand is available in more than 38 countries around the globe in over 450 retailers.
