Spotlight On Women In Business

Celebrating women in Hong Kong with these brands and deals.

Women should be celebrated every day! Though International Women’s Day is a great reminder for us to focus on the awesomeness of females around the world and what they have achieved. Hong Kong is most definitely no exception when it comes to exceptional women. So what better way to show our appreciation and support than by spotlighting some leading ladies right here in the city and the products and services they have to offer. And a special shout out to all those who support women and have carefully created products and brands to show their love.

Hong Kong mother-of-two, Elaine So-Girardi, is the woman behind this chic kids homeware and lifestyle brand. Founded in 2019, this concept store is curated specifically for modern home living for families with children.

With a Scandinavian aesthetic and minimalist approach, Bimbo Concept offers a wide range of products, from toys to children’s furniture, fashion, accessories and more. With around 70 brands in the portfolio, it also has its own Bimbo Casa home decoration collection with all products designed in-house.

Learning Time activity packs

Learning Time, Learning Kits

Who knows more about the importance of play than siblings? This is something Frances Suria realised when she created Learning Time. Along with her brother, Darien, the duo combined their passion for design, education and child psychology to create age-appropriate learning kits for children. As 80% of a baby’s brain is developed by 3 years, Learning Time’s kits focus on kids from 0 to 5 years. With no screens or flashing lights, the kits have books and toys built with Montessori and modern neuroscience principles in mind. There are also developmental guides for parents. Buy an annual bilingual learning kit or opt for a bi-monthly subscription. Though March, customers can get a “Lucky Bag” with 2 to 3 learning materials along with any kit purchase.

Curiosity Kids Hong Kong

Curiosity Kids, Science Classes For Kids

As a mum of two inquisitive children, the founder of Curiosity Kids, Stuti Sharma, knows how eager kids are to learn. Stuti originally started conducting simple experiments to help children understand the concepts of science and its workings in their daily lives. Research shows that introducing STEM to young minds (and to girls, in particular) can lead to future success. Currently, only about 25% of the workforce in such industries is female, and the biggest block is the lack of practical experience. With its hands-on experiments, classes, holiday camps and birthday party packages, Curiosity Kids wants to make science concepts approachable and engaging for girls – and boys! Choose from weekly, private or online classes (available for those overseas as well), holiday workshops or book a session for your child’s birthday party.

Growing IQ, Math Classes For Children

As a Managing Director of Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Hong Kong, Monica Chang is no stranger to pressure. Last year, while in the US, she was forced to homeschool her daughter, Chloe, because of COVID-19. She recognised that Chloe struggled with and had anxiety towards Math. Harnessing her mum-network in Silicon Valley, she discovered Growing IQ and enrolled her daughter there. Within a few weeks, Chloe’s Math skills dramatically improved, but what really impressed Monica was her changed attitude, confidence and interest in learning Math. Hoping to continue with these great results when they returned to Hong Kong, Monica decided to bring Growing IQ here. Now more children in the city can benefit from its innovative and effective Math curriculum. Regular classes and egg-citing Easter camps are now available!

BabyChinos, Preloved Designer Kids Clothes

BabyChinos, Preloved Designer Kids Clothes

Vivian Williams is the mama behind this eco- and price-conscious kids’ clothing site. The mama of two boys (a 2-year-old and his brother who’s due in April!) understands that while we love dressing our cuties in trendy and designer threads, the price point and not-so-eco-footprint that accompanies them is a deterrent! So on BabyChinos, you’ll find a huge range of new and preloved high street and designer brands starting from as little as $50. It’s on a mission to reclaim discarded children’s clothes to reuse, so you can also sell on the items you no longer need! There’s free shipping on all Hong Kong orders and a 10% discount on your first order using the code WELCOME10.

Sassy Mamas can also get 15% off orders when using the code Sassy15OFF at the checkout.

The Petit Pelican, Arts And Crafts Box

As busy mums, Ana and Irina found it challenging to juggle full-time work and spend quality time with their kids (sounds familiar?). That’s when they decided to put their experience in education, arts and design to use and create an activity box that would make it easy for parents and children to create, learn and have fun together. These mama-approved (and designed) boxes for 3 to 8-year-olds teach art, science and sustainability through DIY projects. Each box has six or more edutainment activities, eco-friendly art and craft supplies, an educational magazine, stories, interviews with Hong Kong artists and more. The Petit Pelican boxes are available through a monthly subscription or for one-off purchase.
