What’s the why behind Cooper & Kid’s Story?
The Cooper & Kid story began around a fire, in an earthen hut in Africa. It began in the Cradle of Fatherhood, Motherhood, and all mankind. For nearly two decades, the founder of Cooper & Kid, Nichole Smaglick, lived and worked in remote corners of Africa. As a result, Nichole was steeped in warrior cultures with a cultural tradition of initiation by male elders.
Who are my kids
Going to be?
What can I do to help shape their successful future? How will they remember me? Every Dad asks these questions. From playgrounds to grocery stores to pediatrician waiting rooms to Justin Bieber concerts (don’t worry – nobody actually saw you there), dads are more involved than ever. But not many products on the market connect with this “new dad.”
That’s where we come in.
