Who we are. About Piccoli

We make toys and learning experiences to inspire love, kindness and empathy

Horses are kind, empathetic and protect each other. Together the herd is strong. This vision inspired us to create Piccoli Horses for children around the world: to love, to learn, to be kind to each other and the planet.

Toy & App, love and kind

In case you are wondering, our plush horses don't have any electronics, and our app is not here to get your child hooked on technology. Our plush toy horses are cuddly and soft, designed in Kentucky from the highest quality, softest fabrics. Our learning app helps children learn languages while exercising their whole bodies through physical play guided by animals, kinda like yoga, but for kids! Everything we make is to inspire children of kindness for each other and love for our amazing planet.

Of all the apps on my phone, my daughter picks Piccoli Zoo every time. And I love that the horse has no electronic parts. It's like toys we had as kids. Perfect combination of old and new, past and present.

What our customers say

Piccoli plush horses and apps are loved by children of all ages.
Our sons LOVE their horses. As parents, we appreciate how the app is fun, educational and grows with them! In just one day, our one year old improved his hand/eye coordination. Fabulous!

My daughter, Jasmine, loves her horse, Rose. When I laid down after work and was feeling bad, Jasmine came to me and said, "Here Daddy, you can hold Rose.
She will help you feel better.”

How our journey began

My son Dylan learned English, his native language, with the help of a little horse

In the beginning I set out to help my son, Dylan. He was 3 years old when doctors discovered gradual on-set hydrocephalus, a genetic brain disease. Shortly after his first neurosurgery to alleviate intracranial pressure, I was told my son had to learn to speak.

"English, his native language, is a foreign language to him," his doctor explained. Experts in child development told me that we human beings have to stay engaged in physical play for language to develop.

I've taken what I have learned over the past 15 years and created Piccoli, a technology-based toy company, designed to introduce children to the fun of learning foreign languages.

With love,
