HQ: Bloomfield Hills, MI
CEO: Matthew Damman
Walkie Chalk is a specialty toy company that created a totally new way for children and adults to play with sidewalk chalk. The idea was a solution to a problem, when Shauna had recently had her 3rd C-Section and couldn’t get on the ground to draw with her older two kids. She zip-tied chalk to a stick and from that simple idea, Matt worked to build over 25 different prototypes until he eventually perfected his design and brought Walkie Chalk to market. Today, Walkie Chalk is sold online and in stores across the nation and has also been embraced by the special needs community, allowing children in wheelchairs and with disabilities to draw with their friends.
