ALEXINE & ADRIANA
We are Alexine & Adriana, I am her mother and she is my daughter. We were born exactly 31 years and a day apart. Pumplepie Books & Happiness is a project of love which came about in a complete aha moment. I was trying to decide on a new career path and Adriana was in need of a new yaya and then it hit us - Aha! Let's just be together forever! We both decided to start a business selling our favorite things for kids - Books and Happiness!
Adriana's 5-year experience as a child is our strongest asset, so she’s the one who puts the final stamp of approval on all our products. I’ve really just always wanted to do something in the kids’ industry and I’m thrilled to have the most adorable business partner in the world!
WE LOVE BOOKS
Growing up, a huge part of my childhood was spent reading. I have vivid memories of being spell-bound by a good children’s story; every emotion so raw, so real and I knew wanted the same for Adriana. To build her library over the years, I would frequent second-hand bookstores, join the mob at annual book sales, visit several stores across cities in search of a title, and wish for books at every gift-giving event. Five years later, Adriana has more books than we can both count and her library continues to grow as she’s starting to read on her own.
The books we carry on Pumplepie are all from the Philippines. Why? Because they’re amazing stories, illustrated by world-class artists, inexpensive, diverse and culturally relevant. We’ve put together a curated selection of books for newborns to young advanced readers. They’re tagged and sorted, easily available at the click of your fingers, giving you more snuggle time with your little ones.
WE LOVE TO PLAY
Pumplepie brings you back to basics with products that even parents can enjoy. Reminisce as you introduce to your child games you grew up with. Enjoy the outdoors with the sun on your skin and the wind in your hair. Write, draw and do crafts together. Encourage learning and developing skills through play. Let both your imaginations run wild. Ultimately, our dream is travel across the Philippines and bring you native toys from the different regions. We are starting with some classic pieces mostly from our hometown, we hope they find a lovely home in your toy collection.
WE LOVE THE PHILIPPINES
We are very happy to share Philippine brands that care not only for our children, but also for our environment, community and country. Our children will be our future leaders and the best time to teach them love for country is now. We are blessed to be in a country so beautiful and so rich; we are one of the most hardworking people in the world, known for our warm smiles, big hearts and brilliant minds. Let's raise our children to be Proud Pinoys!
