J.B. Schneider and Antonio Turco-Rivas
Dania Beach, FL
Our story is about passion for better products and how they can change one’s life and that of those around us. P'kolino founders, J.B. Schneider and Antonio Turco-Rivas, started with a clear goal: to "make better products to improve play at home". This mutual goal was realized during their MBA studies at Babson College (the leading entrepreneurial school in the country).
There they began an intensive research and development project with 20+ international design students from the Rhode Island School of Design. From this collaboration came the P’kolino Play Table, and with the help of “those around them”, family and friends, they created P’kolino and this award winning, globally recognized, Play Table.
With the continued collaboration of an international network of designers and some “homegrown” talent, P’kolino has expanded to offer playfully smart products that are enjoyed by children and families worldwide.
