A Message from the Founder/ Owner

Danielle D. North is a wife, mother, long-distance runner, serial entrepreneur and author. She’s an advocate for women, children, equity and diversity. Through her education consulting firm, she supports schools throughout the State of Michigan. She’s a graduate of Central Michigan University and a 2012 alumna of the prestigious German Marshall Memorial Fellowship.

In 2016, she founded the first and only indoor playground in the city of Detroit, Kidz Kingdom. The development of this business was born out of a need to provide a safe, clean and fun space to play and learn in her community for her own children. At the time, her eldest son was only six and an active participant in the creative process. He even named the space. Since it’s inception, the playground has also grown to become a licensed child care center during the week. Additionally, a 501c3 – Biz Kidz was launched to provide a youth summer camp program and curriculum focused on teaching kids to become future business owners, job creators and community developers.

In 2020, Kidz Kingdom Toyz was created with a mission to provide multicultural toys, books, games and activities to promote acceptance and understanding of other cultures through play. We hope you find resources on our site to help with your journey raising open-minded little people.
