When our founder, YiShaun Yang, first came up with the idea of AdoraPet, she was working as a corporate attorney in a Manhattan law firm. Uninspired by corporate legal work, she wanted to create something that brought children joy and nurtured their curiosity and imagination.
In the process of filming a documentary for kids showing puppies playing, she came to realize that her passion is nourishing happy minds and developing new ways for kids to see and safely experience the world by creating children's products that inspire kids to read, play, dream and discover.
As a result, the mission of AdoraPet became: Inspiring Kids to Read, Play, Dream & Discover™. To help achieve this, YiShaun created Pima Puppy and Pico Puppy as the embodiment of children's natural curiosity, imagination, and sense of adventure. Pima and Pico are a little girl puppy and boy puppy who love going on adventures and sharing them with your child through their themed books and dress-up toy outfits.
Throughout the AdoraPet books, Pima Puppy and Pico Puppy have many different experiences that range from the imaginative, like the Mermaid Adventure, to the intrepid, like the Astronaut Adventure, to the practical, like Visiting The Dentist, learning valuable lessons along the way about friendship, helping others, and being true to their own uniqueness. These same lessons, books and toys are what YiShaun hopes to share with her own children one day.
