Atlanta mom, Britt Menzies, was inspired to create StinkyKids after her daughter’s simple request to paint her as a ballerina. StinkyKids are fun and unique characters that teach life lessons to kids. Their motto is “Always be a leader of good.” The name “StinkyKids” comes from the phrase “little stinKers”, which Britt used to describe the innocent behavior of her two kids when they were little.
StinkyKids are little stinKers who learn to make right choices through their childhood mistakes. This innovative brand appeals to parents for the values it represents and appeals to kids because the characters are real kids getting into real mischief.
