Welcome Creator! Thank you for your interest in becoming a Little Proud Kid Merchant. Please review this Brief in its entirety to understand policies, products and opportunities available to you as a Merchant.

Little Proud Kid, LLC ™ was established in 2014 by Founder and Visionary Georgia Lobban.

Little Proud Kid (LPK) was initially an idea born out of a dire need to curb the insecurities I saw brewing in my own daughter, but the moment I realized my story was shared by so many others there was no turning back. No more waiting on big box companies to offer a solution. It was time to turn the lens inward and become the change.

LPK is an all-inclusive online marketplace that provides parents, teachers, and communities with resources needed to make children of ethnic and multicultural background proud to be as beautiful as they are and generate the ability to rise above any circumstance or story that might impact the ability to live their true purpose.

The Problem

  1. For minority parents, it’s discouraging to find so few educational materials there are that uplift their children and make them feel proud to be who they are. Children of underserved races and cultures do not see themselves enough in the world in which they live, that is, books, films and toys.  While there is a lot a lot of enlightening material for other children to learn from, there is little for underserved communities.
  2. Authors, toy makers, film directors, and everyone else that make products for minority children need support. We know the process to get into big box retail stores is challenging – we also know that major distribution channels make it hard for you to recoup costs. The result is little distribution or complete abandonment of projects that ethnic and multicultural communities need. Your success means more toys, books and films made just for minority and under-served children.
