Bivouac Kid provides a practical and stylish solution to a problem most parents have: varying amounts of kids’ stuff, which needs to be tamed. Our products make children’s rooms more accessible for play and imagination, which helps give kids the chance to be more responsible and tidy up after themselves. Bivouac Kid is also about fun. That is childhood, after all." Kollab Hayley Barret t "Kollab’s entire inspiration and purpose as a brand is to make the practical fashionable.

The story goes that he was boozing at his local bar in Los Gatos, the California town where he lived, when talk eventually turned to pets and how much of a pain they are—all the feeding and walking, not to mention having to scoop up their poop. A freelance copywriter at the time, Gary declared that his pet never caused him any trouble whatsoever. How so? Rather than keep a golden retriever, a Siamese or guinea pigs, he had a pet rock. It was a dumb joke, but one that Dahl instantly thought might just be silly enough to work. Within a couple of weeks, he’d talked a couple…

But now I was overwhelmed with euphoria. Why was she hitting with such a force?” Susan Moore, an emeritus professor of psychology at Swinburne University and three-time grandmother herself, says there’s nothing unusual about…
