More than Jewelry Kits
TinyTys™ stimulate creativity, and at the same time are SO FUN! Grown-ups love them too, for lots of reasons: they are releasable, reusable, with no tools required. Entirely Made in the USA, they have minimal environmental impact, and – completing the circle – the more children play with TinyTys™, the more children are fed.
Meet the Founder
Kimberly Meek founded Hacha Retail LLC as a platform to create resources for under-nourished schoolchildren. From Day 1, she has been committed to eradicate hunger in the classroom and a lot of her time and energy is spent discovering and leveraging resources to accomplish that.
Partnering with Notions Marketing
TinyTys™ is proud to partner with Notions Marketing to help distribute our innovative activity kits. Notions is excited our products serve ages 4 and up and they understand our mission of "Children helping Children"!
Craft of the Year
In 2016 Kimberly and her partner Mike Nipke developed and patented TinyTys™ – a craft for children ages 4 and up – and were honored when it was nominated as a finalist for 2017’s Craft of the Year by the Association for Creative Industries.
Lowering Our Environmental Impact
TinyTys™ are molded in “repurposed” Linear Low Density Polyethylene.
Our Tys and Accessories are packaged for retail “on the tree.” This creates a “craft experience”, serves as additional activity and reduces inner-pack material.
TinyTys™ Stickers are printed on heavy paper with “waste removed” for the child to easily work with them. “Recycling” the waste at the production facility ensures that it is properly disposed.
We use a 1-piece mailer retail box for our kits that requires no glue. Families can also “Reuse” the box to store the kit pieces.
