Inspiring creativity…every day.
At Moonfrye, we believe the parenting journey is made up of all kinds of moments. Big, small, happy, sad, messy, beautiful…the kind of moments that make raising a family an adventure in “happy chaos” every single day. Our mission is to support the parenting journey with tools, inspirations and community to make every day an opportunity for families to explore, create and play together.
Celebrating the journey, not the destination
At Moonfrye, we are passionate about giving families unique, simple and time-effective ways to get creative together. From our innovative photo app that lets families capture, decorate and share their memories to our interactive DIY projects, we are committed to inspiring and celebrating the creative process.
Two Women, One Vision
Founded by Kara Nortman and Soleil Moon Frye, Moonfrye believes in bringing expertise, enthusiasm and commitment to the workplace while celebrating individual passions, whether they are coaching Little League, a love for roller coasters, or competing in triathlons. Our unique company culture centers around “living out loud” and a shared passion for creating groundbreaking, inspiring digital and physical products.
