StinkyKids comes from the creative mind of Britt Menzies, a mom who was inspired by her daughter’s simple request to paint her as a ballerina. StinkyKids is a brand with a fun, unique and fresh approach that teaches life’s lessons through its products and books featuring 10 diverse StinkyKids characters. The StinkyKids characters are little stinKers who learn to make right choices through their childhood mistakes and who live by the motto: “Always Be a Leader of Good.” StinkyKids is an innovative brand that appeals to parents for the values it represents and to kids because the characters are real kids getting into real mischief. Since inception, StinkyKids donates 10 percent of its profits to Books, Bears and Bonnets, Inc., a charity founded in honor of Britt’s aunt who died from uterine cancer.
