Ethic, Quality, Safety

With our earliest inklings in 2003, when the very first Meebie was being stitched together on an old Singer 401 sewing machine, we developed a simple ethic: Make the world a better place for everyone. Whew.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
Attributed to Margaret Mead

We believe fostering play and emotional health in children and families will eventually have a profound effect on the whole world.

We are a tiny toy company, but we never feel that current fact limits our potential. From construction to engagement to safety, providing excellent quality toys has always been our commitment. We work very hard to do so, for your family and for ours; we play with Meebie, too. We now have over 10 years of product testing and development behind us. We’re putting our wealth of information into action! We hope to grow much bigger and spread Meebie’s powerful play to an abundance of kids all over the world. Whatever is to come, our commitment to supporting the emotional health of children and families will never change.

Our toys meet and exceed all testing standards for the US, UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. We have added our own additional testing standards based on proposed Minnesota State requirements. For further details, email

About Orkid Toys

Orkid Toys began in August 2003 when Ginny sewed the first Meebie. Her kids, then ages 14 and 9, came home from school, saw Meebie, immediately picked it up and hugged it, and Ginny knew she was on the right track. She began selling the first Meebie toys at a children’s mental health conference in Minnesota nearly two years later. People around the globe have been devoted to Meebie ever since.

The Meebie App was added in late fall of 2012.

We hope to continue to bring you fun, inspiring toys that are also valuable, healthful resources for many years to come.
