Did You Know, Manners To Go Started as an Activity Kit?

Creating the activity kit, Manners To Go was my first foray into entrepreneurship!

And what a journey it was.  I would not trade that time in my life for anything.  

There was a huge gap in the market for a fun and relevant product and program for parents to teach life skills and manners at home.

As I was researching etiquette books and products to teach manners, I found stuffy and judgmental choices.

Manners and confidence never go out of style and as a society, we needed a product that parents and children could relate to and use with ease.

I created and produced over 1500 kits and handled marketing, accounting, sales and distribution all myself. I attended Toy Fair as a vender in NYC twice.  

No, I DO NOT recommend this…doing it all by yourself!

Neiman Marcus, Learning Express and a local children’s store in Philadelphia were the first to purchase the activity kits.

And the rest is history.  Manners To Go continued to grow.  It soon grew into a curriculum for schools.  

I was teaching after school programs and realized I could only be in one place at a time.

That is when I started training others to teach the Manners To Go system.

I am happy to tell you that Manners To Go is taught in all demographics.  From Eloise at The Plaza, to the most challenged areas in the US and other countries, all children deserve to learn good manners. 

Manners To Go speaks to all children.  They find it fun and relatable. 

Still, 20 years later, Manners To Go makes a difference.
