Lauryn Alyssa Wendus

Oli Kids Co. was founded by a mother-daughter duo. The children’s book series is written by Lauryn Alyssa Wendus, and illustrated by Lois Wendus. Their characters now have a life of their own. Their adorable faces and whimsical antics have ventured out of the confines of their bound pages and onto pillows, blankets, games, and accessories. They even have their own song!

Their experience self-publishing and starting a business has also inspired them in creating, an online platform to support local business and local community.
