Past News Releases


Sydney Loew, Founder and Cuteness Control Officer of Poketti LLC, may only be fourteen, but she will be standing tall among her very own products in her first trade show booth at the San Francisco International Gift Fair.

Poketti Plushies with a Pocket, designed by Sydney, are small animal pillows with a useful pocket on the back sized to hold a cell phone, eyeglasses, notebook or other small treasures. Sydney hopes Poketti’s unique combination of plush and cotton fabrics, and their perfect blend of “cute” and “functional” will appeal to gift and toy store owners looking for something new and special for 2014.

Sydney learned the basics of launching a business in her 7th grade entrepreneurial class at The Girls’ Middle School in Palo Alto, California. She enjoyed the process so much that she convinced her family to make it “real.” Her parents, Chris and Kris Loew, both designers, were inspired by Sydney’s entrepreneurial spirit and her simple and iconic designs. They launched the company on Kickstarter, successfully raising $20,000 for manufacturing, and recently received their first shipment of products.

Located in the Design section of the SF Gift Fair, the Loew family will introduce Poketti Series1 — a penguin, bunny, puppy and kitty — as well as a notebook, stickers and greeting cards that fit inside the pocket. With a full range of collectible products and accessories, Poketti aspires to be the next “Hello Kitty,” offering something completely different than what is currently on the shelves.

Sydney hopes her booth will attract both local and national retail stores to carry her products, which are currently being sold online at and at a few local shops (who were more than happy to support her new venture).

Those with a reseller's license can find Sydney and her family at Booth #1249 at the San Francisco International Gift Fair at the Moscone Center ( or visit the company website at to purchase Poketti online.
