Meet the Creator

Monique “Momo” Givens was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She was proudly raised by a loving mother, who was a prominent first grade teacher, and an exceptional role model for the budding young creative.

Momo loved creating pieces and projects from unconventional materials, which aided in her creative and artistic development—which proved to be vital in the years to come. Alongside her creative strides, Momo also emphatically enjoyed playing with her beloved toys all the way up until her teen years. That’s when it dawned on her that her passion for toy play was oh-so-strong, especially given the fact that all her friends were well past those days.

It was then that Momo made up her mind to become a toy designer and pursue her dreams of making amazing toys for generations to come. So, she packed her bags and moved out to Los Angeles where she majored in Toy Design at Otis College of Art and Design. From there, Momo has created countless works that have stunned spectators time after time—and she's just getting started!
