      “I took a big risk in raising money while pregnant...but I wanted to prove motherhood doesn’t have to be viewed as some kind of setback.” Damn proud we're part of her journey: meet @jogriffiths, founder/CEO @knixwear, who just closed a C$53M round: https://knix.com/blogs/knix-blog/the-future-of-knix-with-founder-ceo-joanna-griffiths💪🙋‍♀️🚀

      This is so inspiring, not only because @knixwear is an incredible homegrown success story, but also because @jogriffiths closed the round 3 days before giving birth to twins, & actively disqualified investors who highlighted her pregnancy as a concern. Congrats Joanna & team! https://twitter.com/SeanSilcoff/status/1394609954938572800

      Around Christmas of last year I was looking for a present for my daughter. I was worried she was watching too much YouTube and a lot of the toys that were about were more and more plastic. She did however love books and loved us reading with her. That's when I came across Yoto.

      Yoto partners with Ameet and LEGO to launch LEGO Duplo audio cards https://www.toynews-online.biz/?p=44427 @yotoplay @LEGO_Group

      London-based @yotoplay snaps £12M: interactive audio speaker aims to reduce screen time for kids. 💸
