Online Multicultural Children’s Book and Toy Store Featuring Products That Represent Minority and Multicultural Children Opens Its First Retail Unit at SouthPark Mall in Charlotte, NC.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Little Proud Kid opens its first of many retail units in Charlotte, NC making access to diverse children’s products more accessible to all families.
March 10th, 2017—Only two years ago, Little Proud Kid launched its online marketplace; which has quickly become a vital resource for parents and educators to find products that celebrate children of ethnic and multicultural descent. Staying true to the mission of making multicultural products more accessible to all families; Little Proud Kid opens its first retail unit at SouthPark Mall in Charlotte, NC bringing an array of multicultural books, toys, greeting cards and games to serve the mall’s diverse base of customers. These featured products allow children of diverse backgrounds to see themselves in the books and toys in which they engage, as well as, access for all children to learn about other races and cultures.
Georgia Lobban created Little Proud Kid understanding this necessity first hand when her daughter began asking questions about why she looked different. When unable to find many books or dolls that looked like her and when other parents with children of multicultural descent overwhelming felt the same frustration, she decided to make a genuine change.
“This journey is about arming our next generation with the tools and resources to lead, become good citizens and solve the problems of the world which they will inherently inherit. It begins with how they feel about themselves and each other.” – Georgia Lobban, Little Proud Kid Founder
With an online marketplace and the first retail unit at SouthPark Mall - full of toys and books featuring characters from many cultures and races, Little Proud Kid will eliminate a parent’s search for diverse products. They plan to open their second retail unit at Haywood Mall in Greenville, SC early May 2017 and actively scouting additional locations throughout the United States and Canada.
Beyond products, Little Proud Kid will host multicultural family activities and booking signing events at the Mall.
Little Proud Kid, one the largest retailers of multicultural books, games, toys, and more is a parent’s resource for promoting diversity, celebrating multiculturalism and teaching children to embrace their beauty.
