Our growing list of Black-owned businesses covers lots of things for adults, from housewares to clothing to beauty. But if you’re looking to shop Black-owned for the little ones in your life, we’ve got you covered too. Whether you’re looking for children’s books by a Black author, some cute T-shirts for someone’s birthday, or even a skateboard from the first Black-woman-owned skateboard company, we found the best gifts for every type of kid that happen to be from Black-owned brands and businesses. To make it a bit easier to sort through, we organized this list by category: toys and games, apparel and accessories, and books.
Toys & Games
Little Likes Kids was founded by Kemi Tignor, a mom who wanted to make sure the toys her son was playing with reflected him and his real-life experiences, and they make toys that are both beautiful and educational — like this memory game that’s just hard enough for a toddler.
For the kid of the parents who just binged Watchmen, a Black Wall Street board game that teaches financial literacy and the history of Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at the same time.
