StinkyKids is created by Britt Menzies, an award-winning children’s author, mom, wife and entrepreneur who was inspired by her daughter’s simple request to paint her as a ballerina.
StinkyKids comes from the phrase ‘little stinkers," a term of endearment that represents the innocent, mischievous behavior of Britt’s two children, Max and Emma. Her family’s everyday antics often provide content and insight into the StinkyKids and their hilarious adventures.
The StinkyKids characters are little stinkers who learn to make right choices through their childhood mistakes and who live by the motto “Always be a leader of good." StinkyKids is an innovative brand that appeals to parents for the values it represents and appeals to kids because the characters are real kids getting into real mischief.
Britt’s first two books, StinkyKids and the Runaway Scissors, andStinkyKids See A Full Moon, have been awarded the Mom’s Choice Silver Award for excellence in literacy. In addition to being a children’s author, Britt was a contributor in Chicken Soup for the Soul, an inspirational book by Jack Canfield released in 2009. In 2008, Britt was chosen by Bloomingdale’s as a WOW! Women to Watch finalist for her work in developing consumer products based on the StinkyKids brand.
One of Britt’s proudest professional achievements occurred in 2012 with the debut of StinkyKids The Musical, a family production by Vital Theatre based on the StinkyKids books and characters that appeared to sell-out crowds on Broadway. StinkyKids The Musicalwon the 2012 Best Family Show award by the Off Broadway Alliance.
Britt is a graduate of Florida State University and has two degrees – accounting and finance. While Britt was enjoying a career with a successful Fortune 500 company that allowed her to travel the world, she had always had a passion for art. In fact, when Britt was a little girl, she wanted to be an art teacher when she grew up. The birth of her son inspired her to leave the corporate world and revisit her creative side.
Britt now lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband Mark, and their two little stinKers, Max and Emma, and their bulldog named Pudgy.
For every product launch and retail request, Britt Menzies has held in-store events to promote products and the StinkyKids brand. She’s a tremendous ambassador for the brand – after all, she’s a little stinKer herself. Britt also visits schools for author visits and book signings and she has been a keynote speaker at many entreprenurial, mom-inpspired events across the country.
"StinkyKids Makes for Clean Fun!" - by Erin McLaughlin (Macaroni Kid Blue Ridge)
I have never been able to take my son to any venue - whether it be Cirque de Soleil, the Circus, or the Zoo - that could capture his attention for longer than fifteen minutes without him attempting to bolt. Stinky Kids the Musical changed that. It is clearly MADE for toddlers and younger children. Don’t get me wrong. While it may be targeted toward Elementary children on down, I - along with the other parents there - found ourselves enjoying it as well. I suppose only an old fuddy-duddy wouldn’t enjoy themselves there.
