Share Article

Hannah Altman, a 15-year-old high school sophomore, has been named Creative Director for CoolZips after the merger with the online toy company she founded at age 8.

In 2009, Hannah Altman, age 8, founded Hannah's Cool World, an online store for cool toys that appealed to kids such as collectible squishy pencil toppers and Japanese puzzle erasers. Little did she or her parents know at the time, that this would turn into a six figure business.

By the time she was 10 years old, this young CEO was coined the Business Whiz Kid by AOL Business. Over the years Hannah has continued the success of her company by adding new products that appealed to a variety of kids and teens worldwide. As the business grew, so did her knowledge and interest in entrepreneurship.

Now a high school student, she has made the decision to merge Hannah's Cool World into the family business of http://www.CoolZips.com, an online toy and gift business that began in 2007. With this merger, Hannah has become the Creative Director of CoolZips and is heavily involved in new product development. One new product in particular, My Doggy's Growth Chart (http://www.MyDoggysGrowthChart.com), is a fun pet product with a novel spin on the standard kids growth chart, but this is for your pup!

"I am so excited for this new opportunity," says Hannah. "I loved running my toy business, but now that I am older my interests are more in product development and design. Joining forces with our family business allows me to be more focused on that."

Like many high school kids at age 15, Hannah Altman loves time with friends, listening to endless hours of music, and watching reality television. However, with her CEO experience, she loves business and sharing her success as a young entrepreneur and wants to continue the journey she started at age 8.

Hannah has a sharp eye for products as well, she immediately saw the potential in the popular Rainbow Loom when the product was still in it's infancy stage. The creators of Rainbow Loom live near Hannah, which led to a relationship for CoolZips to form a licensing deal with the company to manufacture charms and Rainbow Loom tote bags.

Hannah's parents are thrilled to have her as part of the company. Hannah's mom, Lauren Altman, shares "Hannah brings us her keen eye and creative outlook. We have a few new products in development and we need her creative guidance and youthful view".
