Our Mission

BIG-SIZED CREATIVITY FOR BRIGHT LITTLE MINDS

At Follies, we are on a mission to unleash big-sized creativity for bright little minds. We believe that it's never too early to develop an eye for design and that children everywhere deserve access to products that respect their intelligence and sense of aesthetics.

That is why our sets are thoughtfully designed, responsibly sourced and manufactured in small batches. We spend months researching and testing each Follies Set and put a lot of effort in creating products that not only your kids will love but ones that also look good in your space.

OUR FOUNDER

Follies are designed by Chloe Varelidi and her company Humans Who Play. Chloe is a trained architect turned play designer who thinks that it's time to start taking play seriously. She has won multiple awards for her work and frequently lectures about harnessing play as a force for learning and doing good. Chloe lives with her family in Washington, D.C.

SOCIAL IMPACT

We also seek to give back, especially within communities of displaced children that are often deprived of play spaces for years on end. We do this through product donations and partnerships with non-for-profits. In 2021 we are donating sets to the Homeless Children Playtime Project in our own community in Washington, D.C. and partnering with the NGO Odyssea to create a pilot program that supports refugee communities in Athens, Greece.
