Jiminy was established by Sharon in 2018, as a means to stock sustainably-made new toys and to provide guides on repair hacks for existing toys, with the company soon to launch a service to sell refurbished preloved toys. Sharon’s commitment to reducing the carbon footprint and wasteful impact of toys has lead her to speak at global toy industry events, including a stint lecturing at the world’s only toy design degree at Otis College Los Angeles.
