Idaho-based company teaches kids to celebrate their differences in a unique way


One of the hardest parts of being a kid is not fitting in. Being a little different can be tough, especially for children, no matter what that difference might be.

One local company is helping kids talk about being different and learn how beautiful being unique can be by combining the characteristics of two animals into one, like a horse and a shark or an elephant and a gorilla, and turning them into stuffed toys.

The company is called Randimals and their goal is to help spread a very special message, which is that “what makes us different makes all the difference in the world.” Randimal co-founder Nick Harman joined Idaho Matters to talk more.

Hi, my name is Hannah and I’m the assistant producer for the Idaho Matters show here at BSPR. If you have a suggestion for an Idaho Matters segment, please email idahomatters@boisestate.edu.
As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
