Kupendo is Swahili for Love. We sell individually handcrafted toys that are ethically sourced. For each purchase you make we will also deliver a toy or book to an orphan in need.


Did you know there are over 34 million orphans in sub-Saharan Africa and most have never received a toy in their lives? For every Kupendo Kids toy that you purchase we will also deliver a toy to an orphan in a developing nation.


About US

We are an online toy store that is spreading love by selling ethically sourced fair trade toys that also delivers toy and books to orphans for each purchase made. This concept was inspired when our founder visited and delivered toys and books to an orphanage in Namibia in October 2018 and saw how much joy this brought to these children.


our artisanS

We work with talented women in South Africa who need fairly paid wages to support their families. Each unique toy they make has their signature touch because each toy is individually handcrafted and embroidered using high quality materials.
