The inspiration behind Chalk and Chuckles wasn't an excessive focus on screens or a search for activities that would keep kids constructively engaged. We were in the midst of reflecting on our personal journey in life. Looking for an apt metaphor to describe it, Pallavi chose "Life is a game," adding, "You've got to play the cards you're dealt with." We spoke about all the enabling factors and skills in our life at rock bottom! The 4 that stood out were Grit, Vision, Flexibility & Love. This led us to combine the 3 most important things that had shaped us as people, (our family, our education, and our play experiences) into Chalk and Chuckles.
Looking outwards at society, the struggles parents were echoing, and the experiences children were living, further clarified our values. We knew fostering self-awareness, creative thinking, resilience, flexibility, and meaningful communication was the way forward, and we began to infuse them into the products we developed.
Since its inception in 2013, we have made products that reflect our commitment to family, community, cooperation, respect, and the power of honest communication. Chalk and Chuckles is founded by 2 sisters Pallavi and Prachi who both switched their careers to devote themselves to their passionate endeavour!
