The Children’s Factory was born in the attic of Mike and Barbara Richter in Kirkwood, MO in early 1982. Their vision was to create soft play environments in which children could safely play. The first product was a basic 3D animal shape sized perfect for a child. From here other products developed and soon the company was growing at a fast rate. Today the company employs over 100 people in a warehouse facility that encompasses over 100,000 square feet.
