About Koa Koa:

Koa Koa comes from my 3 years old daughter who was spending her days asking "WHY" which in French is QUOI, when looking for a name for my company. It's a nod to kid's curiosity. We create DIY kits for the 6 to 10 that are fun, education and useful. Our best seller is the flashlight: we know that kids really use it and that it follows them in all their adventures in the dark during a long time ! We're pay attention to sustainability and avoid unnecessary plastic. Also we're proud to manufacture in the EU, and have our kits assembled by disabled workers in Normandie, France.
