About Us

Our Mission

To treat clients the way we want to be treated. Create uniquely fun experiences. Build things we want to use. Do it because we love doing it. Give back to our community. Support our friends.

We believe that community comes from sharing, and the best thing to share is fun! Sharing well means happy clients and strong communities; this is what drives us to design innovative experiences and products.

We are makers and artisans, and we use our creativity and crafting know-how to create giggles for families. We are passionate about supporting our community, and other small and independent businesses.

During these unprecedented times, we are dedicated to bringing our community together so that we can all weather this storm together - staying happy during the emergency and emerging from it more united than before!

 

How it all began...

Giggle & Riot Fun is our creative solution to problems that COVID-19 has presented to our businesses, our employees, our customers and our community. Our goals are to:

  • Weather out the COVID19 pandemic while keeping our staff employed
  • Bring happiness and memories to families by creating Giggle & Riot Funhouse, our fun pop up selfie experience
  • Support our local small business community by creating creative a curbside scavenger hunt
  • Create creative kits and provide fun local experiences for families and people of all ages during shelter in place
  • Bring our local community together in creative, unifying ways
  • Encourage learning, imagination and play in homebound kids through our products kits

 

All of our products are ethically and locally crafted in Sacramento, California, USA.

Giggle & Riot Fun is a small creative studio based in Sacramento. We design and create uniquely fun interactive experiences and activity kits for all ages. Our products are put together with love and inspired by our own lives and experiences with our loved ones and children in our lives. We are dedicated to providing high-quality, handmade kits to our local families.

We are well aware of the need for safety during this time, so we are strictly observing all the requirements to keep ourselves, our staff and you safe. Our small team has been observing limited social contacts since before it was recommended, and we are keeping everything sanitized as we work. All of our products are sanitary and safe to bring into your home.

We are so passionate about this safety that one of the projects we worked on is making masks and protective shields for doctors and nurses at U.C. Davis Medical Center. A portion of our time (and profits) will go to these brave health care workers, a more important part of the Sacramento community than ever before.

 

Our pop up selfie funhouse, curbside crawls and photo scavenger hunts are interactive and fun. Our kits are super cute and stylish, and we want them to be enjoyed both by grown ups, families, parents and their little ones.
