Pocket Pals | "Everyone Belongs" Felt Play Set

Select Bundle Option

We are so pleased to share our third collaboration with New York Times bestselling author Heather Avis. 

Heather's second children’s book, "Everyone Belongs" is a beautiful rhyming storybook about the power of inclusion and what it looks like when we create space for others, exactly as they are.

We’ve teamed up with Heather to create this exclusive Pocket Pals bundle that includes her book PLUS a 12-piece felt play set for readers to bring the storybook to life.

$5 from each bundle will be donated to the author’s nonprofit, The Lucky Few Foundation. These donations will help to tell the stories of everyday people with Down syndrome and create a more inclusive world.

Ages 3+

Embracing the diversity of characters in Everyone Belongs, this set includes seven characters from the cover—six of whom have a disability—and a felt backdrop, all made from 100% New Zealand wool.

The set also includes a wooden wheelchair, ribbons and fairy lights for decorating the trees, as well as a hand-stamped muslin bag for storing the pieces.

All felt pieces are handcrafted by fair trade artisans in Nepal and assembled and packaged with love in our New Jersey studio.
