About Us

In a multicultural world of intersecting ethnicities and ideologies, it is vital that children are exposed to different people, ideas and inclusive stories from the start.

Akshata Nayak | Founder, Little Patakha

Why Little Patakha?

Five years. That's the age by when biases about identity, gender, race and culture set in. If left unaddressed, these biases can last into adulthood but research also shows that inclusive messaging can change these attitudes in just a few weeks. This information has been out for decades and we still have more children's products with animals as the main characters than all the minorities combined.

Enter, Little Patakha.

Little Patakha is a BIPOC woman-owned children’s brand that offers educational and inclusive high quality, screen-free media products, including books, games and toys, catered to early childhood. Our comprehensive portfolio sparks curiosity and imagination in young minds by introducing them to a universe of diverse people, ideas and stories.
