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.
A portion of profits goes towards bringing smiles to cancer patients through booksbearsandbonnets.org.
In 2012, StinkyKids the Musical debuted to sellout crowds at the renown Vital Theatre in New York City and won the award for Best Family Show from the Off Broadway Alliance. The musical is based on all of the stories in the StinkyKids book series and characters in the StinkyKids brand.
