Baby OOTD from Tinker and Play

Geometric A-line Skirt – Php500
Sizes: T1 to T4

The elastic heairbands from Tinker and Play are really cute! I especially loved the Audrina Hairband since it was in the color that I was looking for. Zeeka has tons of pink haribands but nothing in this light turquoise color. The color is very classy and it went well with this ensemble of Zeeka.

We also ordered this shift dress for Zeeka. The unique print really caught my attention. I haven’t seen a print like this before. Also, I loved that it’s a shift dress. Babies this age seem to grow up really quickly, so shift dresses are really very flexible. I can even use it as a top when Zeeka grows bigger.

I also love the material that they used for the shift dress. It’s very comfortable. When living in a hot country like ours, the materials that babies love are those made from cotton or from breathable materials. Zeeka loves this dress!

The last item that I got from Tinker and Play was a skirt. Again, the geometric design caught my attention. Unfortunately though, when Zeeka used it, it was still too long for her. It looked like a maxi skirt when she wore it. Haha! She was still so cute though.

Mompreneur Marjorie Te of Tinker and Play

It’s great to see more and more moms now engage into business. While looking for cute clothes for Zeeka, I came across a brand caled Tinker and Play. It turns out that the lady behind it was a classmate of mine back in College. Her name is Arjo and she is the mompreneur behind Tinker and Play.

Arjo is happily married for 8 years and blessed with a 3 year old girl and a two year old boy. She loves art, fashion, music and food. She used to work for San Miguel Brewery as a Business Planning Associate before becoming a full time mompreneur.

Interview with Mompreneur Arjo Te of Tinker and Play

Ginger: What is your brand/business? What is it about?
Arjo: Our brand is Tinker and Play, a line of clothes and accessories for ages 1 to 4 years old that are fun, stylish and ready for play.

Ginger: How long have you been in business?
Arjo: My business is still new. I just started in October this year. Right now, I’m developing the brand by designing and producing items I hope would be appreciated by moms like me 🙂

Ginger: Who is your target market?
Arjo: My market are moms with children aged 1 to 4 years old, interested in stylish, playful and one-of-a-kind fashion pieces for their little kids.

Ginger: How did you come up with this idea? What made you decide to start this kind of business, Arjo?
Arjo: My business is a result of my pursuit to find stylish and contemporary clothes and one-of-a-kind accessories. When I gave birth to my eldest, I realized I wanted to be my own boss and have flexibility to attend to their needs. I don’t want to grow old and miss out on their school activities and not have enough time to play with them. That’s why I really made it a point to take a leap of faith and pursue my dreams of becoming a mompreneur. Back when we still didn’t have kids, I designed and created fashion accessories/jewelry for myself and for my friends. I was always interested in clothes and accessories and I liked the idea of producing items that are not mass-produced, that’s why I thought I would try my hand in retail and create a line of kids’ clothes and accessories that are playful, unique and affordable.

Ginger: Were there any obstacles that you faced when you decided to pursue becoming a Mompreneur? What are these?
Arjo: It’s really a difficult decision to start the business especially if you are used to getting a monthly salary from a corporate job. It took me more than a year to convince myself that I’m ready for my leap of faith to entrepreneurship. The convenience of a steady stream of income from a desk job is really appealing but at the end of the day, I am reminded that it’s more fulfilling if I have the flexibility to spend my time with the kids. Balancing work with family, establishing contacts, business credibility and presence are the obstacles I face while starting the business.

Ginger: What are three traits that you think a Mompreneur should have when starting their own business?
Arjo: Passion, Determination and Diligence

Ginger: Any unforgettable moments or lessons that you learned as a Mompreneur?
Arjo: Surround yourself with people who are supportive and believe in you. Learn all the details of the business and never give up. I always believe starting the business is difficult and may discourage you to pursue it but in the long-run, the rewards will be tremendous.

Ginger: What advice can you give to other Mompreneurs?
Arjo: A friend of mine told me to “follow your heart” and someone advised me to “do what feels right”. It’s inspiring and I think it gave me the courage to try and be a mompreneur.

Ginger: Thank you, Arjo, for sharing your story! 🙂 More power to your business.

Watch out for next week Zeeka’s Baby OOTD. It will feature Tinker and Play!
