Our Core Values

  • We believe kids learn best through play.
  • We believe kids should experience a little magic!
  • We believe kids deserve a platform to bloom.

Our Thinking

When we design a new product, we are guided by three important questions:

  1. Does it encourage kids to explore, imagine and discover?
  2. Is it intuitive, beautiful and fun to play?
  3. Does it meet our high standards of quality and safety?
“ Tucked into every detail is an invitation to play. ”

Our Studio

At Sago Mini, everything begins in our play studio. Idea jams, show'n shares, play dates and family-style Monday lunches. Our studio is a springboard for inventiveness, excellence and creativity.

We're always on the lookout for talented teammates.
