Helping Families Thrive Through
We equip families with the tools they need to accelerate their journey toward mental fitness, resilience, and success. At Hugalongs, we believe in the power of early intervention to build strong, capable, and successful individuals.
Kelly, the driving force behind Hugalongs, knows firsthand the struggles and triumphs that come with nurturing the mental fitness of young children.
Our mission is simple: to provide you with proven tools that empower you to build a better future for your family. And to help you feel less alone on your parenting journey, offering encouragement and a touch of laughter as we learn and grow together.
As the founder and mom behind Hugalongs, Kelly is more than just an expert; she's a mom who's been through the ups and downs of parenthood, crafting solutions out of real-life necessity. With a diverse background in psychology, behavioral science, and law, Kelly knows the inner workings of human behavior and how to stay mentally fit in the face of life's challenges.
Kelly's journey led her to create the first Papap Pony Wearable Adventure Buddy, inspired by her childhood as a junior Olympic horseback rider and her young daughter's input. After struggling through the pandemic Kelly was shocked at how her family's well-being was affected. This is when she dived into researching ways to support families through this new reality and incorporating these findings into her children's products. Witnessing the incredible results in her own daughters' social and emotional well-being, she developed Hugalongs – mental fitness parenting tools for families to help with the new challenges they now face.
I invite you to join our adventure, discover the secrets of mental fitness parenting, and build a strong foundation for life with Hugalongs. Because every day is an opportunity to take the reins and thrive.
