HAPPY CHILDREN. HAPPY CAUSES. HAPPY CAREERS.
At the Oliver Poons Children’s Company, we’re about bringing a smile to the faces of children and adults alike! Author Lauryn Alyssa Wendus’ lovable rescue cat, Oliver, brought her much happiness during a prolonged illness and inspired her to create a brand that brought happiness to others. Our products are designed to inspire a happy day and happy dreams for your child, and our mission extends beyond our products to support happy causes and community through partnerships with wholesome organizations and through Lauryn’s new community-based platform, whatsnewlocal.com.
Our products are designed to be lighthearted and bring a smile. Oliver Poons and his friends are happy children’s characters who bring a little whimsy and fun into the day, yet whose sweet and innocent nature makes for the perfect bedtime activity.
At the Oliver Poons Children’s Company, we believe every child deserves a happy day and happy dreams!
Our vision for the Oliver Poons Children’s Company extends beyond the products. We hope to be able to bring smiles and happiness to causes supporting children, education, and animal rescue efforts by donating a portion of our proceeds throughout the year.
Our #YellowHatsforCats campaign partners with various animal welfare organizations to raise awareness for animal rescue efforts. A portion of proceeds generated from sales is donated to animal rescue groups who participate.
The Oliver Poons Children’s Company was created partly because of author Lauryn Alyssa Wendus’ inability to work a traditional job from a prolonged illness with Lyme disease. Illustrator Lois Wendus was also recovering from a severely broken leg and unable to work a traditional job herself for an extended period of time. The two have been able to repurpose their skills and create new work for themselves despite challenges. They realized the importance of having strong bonds in their local community, and wanted to create a platform for others to join forces and to support local business.
