THE TINY REVOLUTION
We are your one-stop-shop to raise socially conscious kids. We have curated books, toys, shows, accessories, and clothing brands that are diverse, inclusive, ethical, and sustainable.
You no longer need to search for all the resources you need to raise socially conscious kids. If you want books that are diverse, books that represent your kids as well as kids who are different to them, toys that are diverse and representative, toys and clothing that are made with ethical labor, and clothing and accessories that are made with sustainable materials, we have it all for you. You can see descriptions, rate and review items, add to your wishlist, and find links for where to purchase all the products we recommend.
We know all parents want to raise their children to be incredible humans who treat each other with kindness and empathy, and we know that all parents are so so busy, so we’ve done a lot of the work for you. BUT, not all the work. We’ve got all the resources you need right here, but now it’s up to all of us to take those resources and start to include them in our kids lives. We need to use them to educate ourselves and our kids about the need for diversity, equity, representation, and sustainability. And Tiny Revolution is here to walk with you on that journey. If we give them the resources, if we take the time to include socially conscious materials in their lives, then . . . Together, our little ones can change the world.
WHY WE STARTED TINY REVOLUTION
About Me: I'm Sanaea and the mama of a gorgeous baby boy, Kazra, who is the light of my life. I was raised in Los Angeles, I'm the daughter of Indian immigrants, I am married to the most incredible Irish man, we live in Dublin, and I'm a tech lawyer. So basically I'm a Desi valley girl who likes to have the craic!
The Seeds of the Revolution: My son was about to turn one and I decided all his birthday presents would focus on making him a more socially conscious little person. I was going to get him toys that showed diversity, books that celebrated differences, that told history in a more inclusive manner, and taught about sustainability and science, I was going to find him some shows that were inclusive and showed a more diverse picture of the world, I was going to buy him toys that were free from plastic, I was going to support clothing brands that had ethical labor and environmental practices, I was going to show him a world and a future that was safer and better for not only him but for all children. Two hours later, I was exhausted. It was like a PhD research project trying to put all the information together and find the types of toys, clothes, books, and shows I wanted to incorporate into Kaz's life. And thus the initial seeds of our Tiny Revolution was born.
I spent the next couple months doing what lawyers do best, research, research, research. I put together lists of books, toys, clothing brands, and shows, I developed ideas to give back and support education for under-served children, I incorporated socially conscious products into my family's life, I began developing website mock-ups, and I couldn't turn my little brain off. I was working full-time, taking care of a one year old, the pandemic was in full swing, but every night with my only free time I would get on my computer and work. Because this Tiny Revolution matters, it matters for the future of our world.
I firmly believe that education is the great equalizer, that education brings about positive change, that education can shape our little people into grown-ups who make the world a better, safer, more just place for everyone.
So I hope you will all join me in building a community with resources to raise kids who celebrate diversity, fight for equity, demand representation and inclusion for all, and believe in science and sustainability.
Tiny Revolution is a community for parents who want to do better. We support each other, we listen to each other, we respect each other.
