Meet the StinkyKids®, a diverse group of 10 “little stinKers,” each with their own unique qualities.

The StinkyKids® series helps children learn to make right choices and reminds them to “Always Be A Leader Of Good.” Their heartwarming, funny and real–life adventures capture the true innocence of childhood and the lessons we learned through our mistakes—when we were just StinkyKids® ourselves.

Saturday was Britt’s favorite day. It was the day Britt had a playdate with her friends Hannah, Max and Julie. But this Saturday Britt had a secret. A secret she didn’t want to tell her mommy and daddy. A secret that could stop her favorite playdate from happening!

The “little stinKers” try their best to help Britt with her secret. Along the way, they learn that sometimes, secrets need a parent’s help to solve.

Britt Menzies is a mother, wife and artist with a flair for originality. Inspired by her own two beautiful “little stinkers,” Britt is the founder, creator, and spirit behind StinkyKids®. While she was enjoying a career that allowed her to travel the world, she had always had a passion for art. The birth of her son inspired her to leave the corporate world and revisit her creative side. Today, a few years and a daughter later, the result is StinkyKids®.

Along with being a stay–at–home mom and entrepreneur, Britt is an active volunteer with Books, Bears and Bonnets, Inc., a non–profit organization founded by her mother in memory of Britt’s late aunt.
