Connect and Reconnect. Create and Recreate. Imagine and Reimagine. TinyTys™ is an activity kit that stimulates creativity, and at the same time is SO FUN! TinyTys™ are made for children ages 4 and up, they pull apart with just a tug, and are a unique craft that allow children to create and recreate personalized jewelry to wear, share and decorate clothing and belongings.
Grown-ups love them too for many reasons; they provide a Discovery Learning experience [STEM, COMMON CORE, and ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education)] for younger children and help them to improve dexterity and fine motor skills. It’s an imaginative way to have fun while learning!
They are releasable, reusable, with no tools required. Entirely Made in the USA, they have minimal environmental impact, and – completing the circle – the more children who play with TinyTys™, the more children who are fed.
In 2016 Kimberly Meek and her partner Mike Nipke developed and patented TinyTys™ – a craft for children ages 4 and up – and were honored when it was nominated as a finalist for 2017’s Craft of the Year by the Association for Creative Industries.
Kimberly founded Hacha Products Corporation, the parent company of TinyTys, as a platform to create resources for under-nourished schoolchildren. From Day 1, she has been committed to eradicate hunger in the classroom. A lot of her time and energy is spent discovering and leveraging resources to accomplish that. Each TinyTys purchase helps support Blessings In a Backpack. Blessings In a Backpack fills 93,000 backpacks each weekend for children with food insecurities in United States. One in every five children do not know where their next meal will come from. Every 5 TinyTys kits sold, fills a backpack for a child.
