The Story of Papinee
PAPINEE is inspired by the Founder’s mother, Shobha, who through toys, books, paintings, and objet d’art from all around the world coupled with a vivid and magical imagination, found ways to take her son, Dev, on incredible voyages without leaving their home.
Through her extraordinary storytelling power Shobha transformed their living room into the Ancient Pyramids of Giza & King Arthur’s Round Table; they sat on spectacular magic carpets and travelled with the Queen of the English Owls; and they laughed, they learnt, they climbed the Aztec Temples with mischievous tell-all Mexican Monkeys. Together they recounted history, created new stories, and made lifelong memories from precious moments of fun and play.
Dev’s amazing mother, also a dedicated philanthropist, shared her imagination with youth from all walks of life. She believed that all children were special and deserving of the ability to dream freely, to imagine limitless universes, and be able to create their own brilliant futures. She called every child a “Papinee,” a word she invented encompassing innocence, fun, happiness, and magic, and her goal was to make every child feel extraordinary, simply because they were.
Unfortunately her will was short lived due to ill health. But years later her heroic ideals, strong determination, unconditional love for all, and pure beliefs have been brought back to life. Today her immortal gift of imagination has inspired the creative art-toy movement of PAPINEE, empowering children from all worlds with the vision to reach for the skies.
