Callie Christensen is a co-founder of Slumberkins, a leading educational children’s brand working to empower parents to teach positive social-emotional life skills to children at home. As two moms and educators, Callie and Kelly are on a mission to use their combined backgrounds to create a more meaningful children’s educational product line. Slumberkins are easily implemented into everyday family routines to support social-emotional learning, providing digestible therapeutic techniques for parents to use, and normalize conversations about big feelings. The mission of the brand continues to resonate with the Millennial and Gen Z generations of parents seeking out more intentional products to bring into their homes and take action in their child’s development. The brand has experienced enormous growth in two years through their presence on social media, and an appearance on Shark Tank in 2017 and is now co-producing a live action puppet television series with the Jim Henson Company.
