My name is Monica Escobar Allen. The MoMeMans® is a little something I started dreaming about in 2015. As a new mom of a baby girl, I got to know the lay of the land in baby goods and I couldn't believe everything out there was still so gender specific. Because girls only love flowers and princess stuff and boys only love trucks, trains and dinosaurs, right? I mean, what??
During this time, I also doodled a lot in work meetings. And before I knew it, I realized I had created a whole cast of characters and thought, 'Why not make my own nursery art and decor?'...so I quit my job and went for it! (Freelancing to pay the rent, of course.)
And by 2017, The MoMeMans® were born. I gave these kooky characters everything I was looking for. Quirky looks and sensibilities. Compassion, wonder, resilience and grit. The MoMeMans learn they don't need to be like everyone else. Because their best parts are their different parts and using these parts to help each other makes them super smart!
We are Stories, Decor and Gifts for Creative Kids and Grown-Up Kids. Still in the works—> little stories and videos about characters learning from mistakes and learning to help each other. Until then, I hope you can enjoy their gender neutral selves and learn to love them as much as I have.
I've learned so much in the last few years and look forward to sharing new things as they are ready. Thank you for being here. Thank you for your interest. I'm having so much fun sharing The MoMeMans with you.
This is just the beginning…
With love and gratefulness, Monica AKA. The Original MoMeMan
