Capikooa was founded in 2017 by husband and wife team; Warren and Maria, just before their second child was born. After years of scuba diving together on holidays, Warren and Maria have a heightened awareness of environmental issues and have made significant efforts to make smart choices in their home life and reduce their waste. Since becoming parents, they became increasingly aware and frustrated by the amount of plastic used in children’s toys and the subsequent contribution to plastic waste and they were determined to make a difference. Maria discovered a real passion for child development since having their first child, and through this has gained an understanding of the importance of learning through play and encouraging children’s imaginations. They found most of the plastic toys they owned to be of low quality and provide limited play value, so decided to donate the majority and just have a few high-quality toys which offered a benefit to their children. The couple decided to combine their passion for child development with their ambition to reduce plastic waste, to form Young & Learning – a child-led, eco-friendly toy company, making sustainable open-ended toys which encourage imagination, creativity and movement. Their mission is to create a new world of play, protect our planet and make the world a better place.
