Hi! My name is Enya and that sweet little boy with me is my son Jacob. As I'm writing this, he is 5 years old. I'm SO happy that you're here!
It all began one incredibly hot day in March of 2022. My then 3 year old said, "Mama, I wish I had a steering wheel" and motioned himself driving as he's sitting in his stroller.
Me thinking that this must obviously exist goes straight to Amazon. Without luck, I brush it off and say I'll look more closely at home.
Low and behold, after hours of obsessive Googling, I find nada.
You should know that I'm a very easily excitable person with no impulse control so I jumped HEAD FIRST into this endeavor.
HOW THE HECK IS THERE NOT AN ATTACHABLE TOY STEERING WHEEL OUT THERE?!
Then I start thinking.....you know those giant shopping carts that look like cars and have the steering wheels attached? You know how each store has maaaaaaybe 2 and they're never available? And you know how if your child doesn't get that cart, tears ensue? And you ever wanna go grocery shopping in peace but not resort to giving your child a screen? What about when you're on the airplane and are desperate for entertainment for your little one?
THIS THING I INVENTED IS LITERALLY THE SOLUTION TO IT ALL.
And this is how The Weeli™ by OlyTot™ came into existence.
Before The Weeli™, I ran a company called Minimalist Minis™ where I wrote & sold children's books. I also designed & sold the only white splashpad on the market (works with every theme backyard party!). I have brought them into OlyTot™ & those products can be found here. Purchasing helps support me in bringing The Weeli™ to life.
I am a single mama and my son Jacob is my biggest inspiration. I am having the best time showing him that you really CAN do anything if you put your mind to it and take it all one step at a time! It is ALL truly possible.
I am sooooo excited to share this project with all of you and I hope you find as much value in it as Jacob and I do!
While the mission at OlyTot™ is to provide screen-free, purposeful play options for kids, my personal goal with this company is to provide low-cost housing aid for single mamas. It's tough out there and struggling with where to put your babies to sleep should be the last worry. I aim to have the means to give back as much as I can.
Everyone's support means so much to me! Here's to raising kind, capable, empowered, and inventive littles!
PS Major shoutout to my parents. We are truly blessed to be able to be given a room in their house.
