Monkey and Peanut - Stylish Children's Belts

“Say Goodbye to droopy pants and hello to playground roving fashionistas.”

Monkey & Peanut you had me at your tagline. I am a sucker for great branding and businesses that launch with a solid look and feel. From their packaging to their slogan Monkey & Peanut launched with a bang! Over the last few months I have been able to try out some of these stylish Monkey & Peanut belts and indeed said goodbye to those droopy jeans.

Danielle, founder and designer of Monkey & Peanut, is such a pleasure to be around. Recently I’ve had the pleasure of attending a few markets where Danielle is present, her smile is contagious making it impossible not to want to get to know her better and learn about her dreams for Monkey & Peanut. With her initial launch Danielle has made some changes to her belt design and we are head over heels with her recently launched new and improved custom belt buckles.

It is such a pleasure to share about Danielle’s journey on the blog today and also offer an exclusive coupon code for all of you readers to stop the sag on your toddlers pants. Enjoy!

Floral Toddler Belts

1. Ok, tell me? The name, where did that come from?

Monkey&Peanut…. from my babies! We called Ethan our little monkey from the day we found out he was coming and even had his room in a sock monkey theme. Our sweet Ashlyn always felt “tiny” inside belly… like a little peanut, and those names just stuck! As I started this business, I wanted my kids to be involved somehow and it just made sense!

2. Share a little bit about how your business got started.

To be honest… from a “need”. As I started to play more “dress up” with Ashlyn…. I found that all the pants I had with loops just didn’t fit in the waist. I made my first belt and I got compliments on it wherever we went. I had an itch to start something while on mat leave the first year and so it just happened.

3. What was the biggest challenge for you when getting started?

There have been many challenges along this journey, as I am sure any entrepreneur will tell you! But my biggest challenge when starting… was to actually START. To rid my mind of self doubt and to believe that I can do anything that I want. To take the leap from a steady income and take a risk. The biggest driving force for me has not been to become rich…(although that’d be nice!) It was and still is to see what I can do on my own, to get outside of my comfort zone and to see what other opportunities exist for me.

4. What support did you have to overcome that challenge?

Thank god for family and friends! My 2 very successful brothers (who both own/run multiple business/projects) have inspired me and offered very helpful advice. Along with entrepreneur friends providing insight and support along the way. I really couldn’t have taken the leap without their support.

5. What have you enjoyed the most about running your own business?

Having the outlet to use my creative side. I am a lover of crafting, sewing and just doing anything creative! Also, meeting some amazing women in the industry, I’ve been able to develope new friendships and love the network of small businesses supporting one another!

6. Share a little bit about yourself and what you like to do in your spare time. (if you have that? ha!)

With the little I have… I make the best of it! Health and fitness are very important to me… so I’m still trying to squeeze workouts in during nap time… usually with my phone in one hand! I also love to craft and bake and try to get my kiddos involved with that as much as I can!

7. What are some plans/goals that you have for Monkey & Peanut?

We are hoping to have our custom packaging all set in the next month so we can start to doing more retail. We have also been working tirelessly on developing a custom buckle along with new print designs. As we grow, I’d love to add more products to our store and we have some cool ideas….but you’ll have to wait and see about that!

  • Pretty sure I’m going to be getting my eyebrows microbladed next month. Been wanting to do this since I was pregnant with Evelyn, would love to hear your thoughts on it below 👇🏻👇🏻
  • Winter days that remind me of summer are my favourite.
  • As the weather gets nicer I am planning on getting out more and more with these two, side by side in our @bugaboostrollers. I found trying to go for walks for exercise with Sophie out of a stroller doesn’t amount for much exercise. It included a lot of rock discovering, bench sitting and flower sniffing.
•
What are some ways you plan to increase exercise this year?

  • One of these teddies is not like the other ones.
  • Those lights were put up with the holiday decor, but they haven’t found their way down yet. Thinking they might have moved in for good 😆
  • Ezra has been gone for the past few days (almost a full week). It’s been so strange not having him around and the girls (and us of course) miss him so so much! Sophie’s asked me everyday when he’ll be back (his Mom took him to Disneyland for his birthday, lucky guy!). Tomorrow is back to routine and smothering Ezra in all the birthday love cause he’s coming back a 9 year old! 🎉 🎂
