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. In 2006 The Children’s Factory was sold to another family who values their employees, customers, products, and children as much as the Richter’s did. We will continue to focus on innovative products, widening our product offering, staying on the cutting edge, and exceeding our customer’s expectations. Soft, safe, creative play is our passion. Our products are designed towards ASTM standards and our materials pass or exceed the CPSIA requirements.
