About

What if every month something adorable showed up in the mail for your kids? Something useful. And it came with a special little something extra?

We want to deliver a monthly dose of fun to you in the form of kid’s socks in fresh designs with playful colors. With a monthly subscription to our sock club, you're always guaranteed socks in your child's size.  And with shoe size profiles for your kids, we keep track of sizing, so there's no hassle remembering it every time you purchase.

Club concept 

You get easy registry on our site, with profiles saved for your kids. Sign up for monthly delivery and save- 

  • 6-pair pack of socks for baby = $16 + shipping
  • 3-pair pack of socks for toddler, little kid + matching stickers = $12 + shipping 

Or if you're not into the club, buy our designs one at a time

  • 6-pair pack of socks for baby = $18 + shipping
  • 3-pair pack of socks for toddler, little kid + matching stickers = $15 + shipping

Fresh Designs + Quality

Our designer has more than 5 years experience designing kid’s legwear for the likes of Nordstrom and Babylegs. She understands what goes into a great kids' design. She's also a mother of two, and knows that boys don’t only want to wear blue trucks and green dinosaurs, and that girls like more than purple flowers and pink butterflies. 

Our factory produces high quality product and has over 400 yarn colors to choose from.  Our socks will always be cotton, which means your kids' feet will be comfortable, and our product easy to care for.

Easy + Fun = Happy Parents + Happy Kids

We want to deliver the best possible quality for a reasonable price.  We think we can do better than the pink/blue status quo, and that delivering once a month takes one more thing off your list. Plus, who doesn’t love getting mail? And we mentioned the stickers, right?

Thank you for helping us start something new!

Maker by Trade

Where you come in-

We have this idea that we can change the way people dress their kids, one fun sock at a time- but we can't do it without you! Your pledge goes towards meeting our factory’s minimum requirement for new business, and in return, you'll get first pick of the designs of your choice.

We've created a reward list that we think will match our pricing going forward (it's pretty close!).  Like what you see?  Sign up for the monthly subscription after the Kickstarter, and keep getting our great socks in the mail!

Now that you've seen the rewards...

Risks and challenges

We’ve been working for months to get Small Socks going. It’s a dream that’s consumed a lot of hours. We want things to run smoothly and to that end, we’ve done a lot of research and prep work to get things in place. Like any new business, there are pitfalls. Here’s the risks as we see them, and what we’re working on to beat them.

Design
Designs are complete and have been sent to our factory. Some initial samples have come, we’ll be commenting on them, and then wait for new samples. The new samples will have minor corrections such as color and artwork tweaks.

Production-
We’re familiar with all aspects of the production process and are currently working with the factory to ensure demand will be met when our Kickstarter campaign is a success.

Delivery-
Our factory has advised timelines, and we’re working hard to meet approval deadlines. We think we’ve buffered the calendar to allow for unforeseeable obstacles, and we’re dedicated to the idea of over communicating with our factory counterparts and backers, to be as transparent in this collaboration as possible.
