Alma's Designs makes toys that educate, fascinate, and inspire. Founded in the 1990s by two grandparents, this San Francisco-based company (owned since 2011 by Farallon Brands) strives to spark the imagination with its storytelling dolls, fabric books, and other fun toys. Help your little one learn how to count with Alma's Five Little Monkeys on a Bed (an adorable set of soft numbered monkey dolls) or master the alphabet with the Chicka Chika Boom. My Quiet Book, a cloth book shaped like a bright blue briefcase, teaches children about the joys of interactive play; other books provide counting lessons or feature nursery rhymes. As a socially responsible corporation, Alma's Designs enforces fair labor policies and uses nontoxic materials in its high-quality products.
