Our Story

Born out of real-life necessity.
The Story of Papap Pony

The Spark: As a former Junior Olympic rider and horse enthusiast, I was expecting my youngest. Amid the joy, a question lingered: How can I ensure my firstborn will feel loved with a new sibling on the way? The answer was a beloved childhood toy-the hobby horse.

The Creation: Drawing from my passion, I reinvented the hobby horse into the first Adventure Buddy, Papap Pony, a companion designed for more than play—crafted for support, adventure, and endless cuddles. Papap wasn't just a toy but a buddy for every leap, laugh, and hurdle.

The Activities: I invented a story of the Adventure Academy which would deliver special missions or positive messages to my daughters using their ponies. They loved when a special delivery arrived!

The Impact: Papap Pony became a constant friend for my daughters, ensuring they never felt alone. This bond, this magic, was something I knew had to be shared.

The Mission: Hugalongs was born from this vision. More than just a brand, I am dedicated to bringing the support and friendship of Papap Pony wearable Adventure Buddy to toddlers and preschoolers everywhere. My goal? To transform life's challenges into adventures, ensuring every child feels brave, loved, and ready to explore.

Join Us: Dive into the world of Hugalongs, where every child is a hero and every day is an adventure waiting to unfold.

Grab your own Papap Pony and let me know what you think. I am always looking for ways I can improve our products!
