OLD TO BE DELETED Made with ❤ by H&AL

Our little pop-up shop

The first step in our journey was launching our experiential pop-up at Stanford Shopping Center, where we shared our favorite toy finds from around the world after researching thousands of brands. It's what inspired us to create our own products!

Reading Wand & Bilingual Books

Our Reading Wand & bilingual books combine our love of books with our deep desire to raise bilingual kids, both to preserve cultural heritage and to provide opportunities for lifelong enrichment for our four children. We hope yours love them, too!

New Products & Languages

We're thrilled to introduce our new Puzzles & Flashcards (Summer 2022) and bilingual books in French, Korean & Hindi (Fall 2022)! Each works with our magical Reading Wand, and like our books, they are accessible, fun and made with ❤ by H&AL :)

About Hanna & Anne-Louise

We joke that we're twins from opposite coasts (H West Coast, AL East Coast), joined by our first employed (BCG) in Minneapolis (our first project), followed by China (where we both did a 1-year externship).

In China, we ate, adventured, grew, and started a lifelong friendship. We returned to our respect coasts for business school (H to GSB, AL to HBS) and got married, where we were each other's bridesmaids. 

Now, we are both mothers, co-located in California and on a new adventure as entrepreneurs building Habbi Habbi - a journey of experimentation, vulnerability, excitement, discovery, joy, and fulfillment.
