Sketch Design was founded by two moms Kate & Svetlana in New York. Our small but growing business is committed to offering unique natural toys and products for children that are safe, healthy and help develop life practical and fine motor skills and encourage imaginative play. You will find no battery-operated or plastic toys here, the kind that will be played with for a short time before ending up in a landfill. All of our products are made in the USA by us…with lots of love. Our Quiet Sensory PikaBooks and other accessories are entirely handcrafted in a home environment, not in a factory. When both of us had our kids Emily & Alex we searched and searched for the perfect toys that fit our criteria: safe, lasting and special. When we almost gave up, that’s when the inspiration for creating our own Busy Books or PikaBooks for our kids came. Both of us had jobs and ongoing projects when the pandemic in 2020 changed it all. Svetlana lost her daycare center that was about to open. As a single mom, she needed to find a way to support herself and her son, so she started selling the Quiet Books that she had made for her daycare. She sold them all and we decided to keep making more! Not only we were making a product we always wanted for our own children, we were now offering it to all the children and that made our hearts full!
Our Quiet Books and other products are all individually handcrafted with love. They are safe and fun. Most of the materials we use are made of organic fibers.
