In May 2004, J.B. Schneider and Antonio Turco-Rivas set out to start a company, doing what they love and involving their families in that experience. Being parents they knew the home is one of the primary environments where children play and learn and saw a need to improve play at home; particularly play furniture. Together they decided that was the perfect fit and Pkolino (inspired by the word Piccolino "little-one" in Italian) was born. To date P'kolino has achieved what it set out to do! They love it, their families are abundantly involved and their products bring joy to other parents and children.
