About Feppy Books:
Double the fun with Feppy!
Feppy is an award-winning creator of bilingual Spanish & English books, games, and learning toys for kids ages 3-8. Our mission is to raise the next generation of global citizens, one moment, one story-time, one fun game at a time!
Our name, “Feppy” is meant to embody bilingual happiness; it originates from the Spanish (FEliz) and English (haPPY).
Founded by Ronit Shiro, a mom and champion for multilingual education, Feppy products are designed entirely for kids but with parents in mind, too.
Feppy makes Spanish & English language learning fun, playful, and accessible to kids at every developmental and language skill level.
Words from the Founder:
“Imagine a world where more people understand each other.”
Understanding begins with language.
Language is so much more than words – it’s a dynamic confluence of open minds, global cultures, and the basis of connection.
I was lucky to grow up learning more than one language. When I became a mom, I knew that bilingualism was one of the greatest gifts I could give my children.
In our family, being bilingual meant being able to connect with grandparents and friends, but it also meant creating more opportunities for my children’s futures. Bilingualism opens doors.
This is where the idea for Feppy came from. How can we share this with families to make language learning easy? How can we create fun and engaging ways for kids to learn?
Our English-Spanish bilingual books, games, and toy business began in 2020 and has been growing ever since.
We’re learning from our customers that play-based learning makes exposing your child to another language easy and that you don’t have to be bilingual to raise a bilingual child.
The future is bilingual and we’re so honored to be helping families across the country create opportunities for their children.
