Parents and Grandparents can agree that kids want to help any way they can, especially little kids....and baking. They love to get their hands dirty and let their imaginations run wild. Flour becomes pixie dust, eggs become dinosaur eggs, and the mixer becomes a helicopter that specializes in making clouds. 

Kids struggle using utensils that do not fit easily into their hands and become frustrated when they have trouble "helping". Our line of kids rolling pins are great for kids of all ages and fit nicely into their hands. Big kids love rolling patterns onto cookie dough and creating their masterpiece. Little kids spend hours rolling patterns into play dough...smash and repeat. 

Help us bring the imagination of kids to life with a fun way to bake!

Besides being lots of fun and fitting perfectly into little hands, our pins are made of high quality solid maple or solid birch. Only the best pins are used for engraving and contain no large knots. Each pin is carefully engraved, hand washed, then sanded. It is then sealed with food grade mineral oil to prevent sticking.

Little ones will stay entertained for hours playing with mini pins and ZDough! Giggles, laughter, and squeals of delight will be heard throughout the house as they squish, flatten, roll fun patterns, and create their masterpieces.

Are the mini pins real rolling pins or just toys?

The mini kids pins are real rolling pins, on a small scale. The mini pins freely roll, allowing your little one to hold onto the handles to roll out their patterns on cookie dough or play dough.


What can the mini kids pins be used for?

The mini kids pins are great for use on play dough, like Dough, and can also be used for rolling patterns onto cookie dough, pie dough, or clay.

How big are the mini kids pins?

The mini kids pins measure 7.25" (18.415 cm) from end to end.

Is the mini kids pin safe for my little one?

Yes! The mini pin is ASTM F9630-11 certified. The pin is sealed with food grade mineral oil to prevent sticking.

Our line of kids rolling pins are great for kids of all ages and fit nicely into their hands. The patterned pins keep your child engaged throughout the entire cookie making process. Laughter can be heard all around as they roll fun patterns and anxiously wait to eat their creations.

Every kids pin is made 100% in the USA!

What can the kids pins be used for?

The kids pins are great for baking and rolling fun patterns onto cookie and pie dough. The kids pin is also great for rolling patterns onto clay.

How big are the kids pins?

The barrel on the kids pins measure 7" (17.78 cm) from end to end.

Is the kids pin safe for my child?

Absolutely! The pin is made of solid maple or solid birch. The pin is sealed with food grade mineral oil to prevent sticking.

Each pin is made of solid maple or birch. Pins are individually engraved on a laser and are then carefully washed and sanded. A food safe oil is applied to the outside of the pin to prevent your dough from sticking and to protect the wood. The entire process to make one rolling pin takes 3-5 days. 

Risks and challenges

Our first step in producing the pins is ordering the pins themselves directly from the mill. When working with any manufacturer there may be some unexpected issues and delays during the production process. Once the engraving process begins, the process is pretty smooth. Each holder, apron and hat will be made using the patterns shown above. As we are limited on the amount of fabric we can purchase from our vendor, we may need to substitute a pattern. We will keep you updated along the way!

That said, I have been producing full sized custom engraved rolling pins for over a year now and have successfully shipped over 500 to bakeries, chefs, and serious amateurs all over the world. I fully expect to be able to fulfill every order and, while possible, do not expect any major delays in delivery as promised.

Why is our funding goal so low?
We know we can make the pins and add-ons and deliver on your rewards. We are introducing a new product line under an already successful model. Keeping a low funding goal will help ensure you receive your rewards.
