Updated for the 2022 holiday season! 🥳🥳🥳

Let’s support some amazing Black-owned children’s businesses this year! There are so many out there, so this is just a few of many. You can support many of these businesses directly through their sites or by purchasing from Amazon, Target, or another big box retailer. Let’s add to our children’s collections of things this year by supporting some of these dope brands.

Liberated Young



Shop ABC affirmation flash cards with Liberated Young. These are the most adorable cards. I can imagine making a fun game out of them, going though them like a bedtime story, or even hanging them on the walls.

Cocoa Cutie
