We started our business to make life easier for parents - whether it's portable activities for when you're waiting with kids, party favor packs that won't go straight to the trash, or geeky gifts that make you smile - we make things we love, and things we need!
kittd (pronounced kit-ted) also provides jobs for stay at home parents returning to the workforce. Kristie is a graphic designer by training, and Maria is a clinical social worker. Neither of us wanted to return to our original fields full-time, so we decided to start our own company.
We're based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, although we're not native Iowans. We're proud of our community, our little workshop, and the products we create.
Based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, kittd is the brainchild of Kristie VanGorkom (left) and Maria Sanchez-Masi (center). We founded kittd in 2015, and Beth McDougall (right) joined us in 2016 as Director of Sales & Marketing.
