About Us Wonderhood is a women-owned company founded by Andrea Wenner Hollander and Solange Schipani, longtime friends who met at Columbia Business School, and fellow "Moms on a Mission." Inspired by their daughters, they set out to create a new kind of toy to empower girls to be the architects of their own futures. The designers believe children should have toys that go beyond stereotypes--toys that are fun, creative, encourage them to dream big, and also teach them important skills for the future, especially in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). So they tossed aside traditional notions and created a brand new vision: Wonderhood toys engage both creative and scientific sides. They believe that everyone benefits and everyone can have fun with Wonderhood; girls, boys, and grown-ups.
