About Monkey-Toes: A subsidiary of Garnishes, Inc., Monkey-Toes began in 2002, blossoming from a love of children and painting, as well as the dream of being an all-American entrepreneur and stay-at-home mom. Jenny Chism, single mom and owner of Garnishes, Inc., designed Monkey-Toes, a hand-painted shoe line of animals and insects for small children.

About Pig Pen Designs: Created in 2004 by Sydney Cymbala of Parker, CO, Pig Pen Designs is a company dedicated to providing parents with a stylish alternative to baby motif found in most baby superstores, while still providing the required functionality. Sydney began product development after her own sonÂs obsession with making his surroundings a Âpig pen.Â Her desire to have stylish dÃ©cor in her home rather than cartoon-driven merchandise motivated her to use hip, in-style designs. Pig Pen Designs specializes in designer splat-mats and placemats with reversible chalkboards. Pig Pen products make mealtimes, craft time and playtime clean up a snap, all with a designer look. Pig Pen products can be purchased online at www. pigpendesigns. com and in specialty stores.
