Gezinnig helps to enjoy meaningful moments
Gezinnig is a Dutch brand established by Rianne van Essen in 2008. Our mission is to playfully build a closer connection between children and their parents. The collection of products consists of cheerful Chatbooks and handy Planningtools for children (3 – 12 years) that help children and parents communicate and strengthen the relationship between them.
The Chatbook series helps children and parents talk more freely about a variety of topics. They enable parents to give their child more attention, gain more insight into how their child is doing, and have more fun together. Reading a Chatbook helps to make regular time for one-on-one interaction amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The Chatbook series has helped and inspired thousands of parents and children. More than 200.000 books have already been sold in the Netherlands and Belgium alone. More and more professionals, such as parenting coaches, teachers, and other educators, are discovering and recommending the Chatbooks. We are honoured to bring support, joy, and connection to so many families.
In 2017 Gezinnig launched the Checkpad, a daily planner to make morning and evening routines fun and easy. It is an interactive checklist that helps reduce stress during ‘family rush hour’ every morning and encourages children to become more independent. It helps everyday chores go smoothly, saves time, and promotes a calm, relaxed atmosphere.
In 2008, Gezinnig started selling its successful magnetic weekly planner. A redesigned version of this product – called Weekpeek – will be released in February 2024 with an English manual. When is the after-school programme, when is the babysitter coming, when is the party or when is the dentist appointment? Get instant insight into what your week will look like. Our planner will help you create peace & quiet and keep you in control.
