Our Story

The Philosophical Egg was “hatched” by Jill Hodgson, a single mom of 2-year-old Bella (future President of Toy Development). It is her dream to produce creative, interactive and substantial toys to inspire relationship-building, learning and imagination while honoring the earth.  She has been a long-time advocate for sustainable living and it is her hope to inspire others to search for creative ways to use what materials are available to them in new ways.  Because she is using reclaimed materials, it is her hope to gain your trust regarding aesthetic and quality control as she continues to unveil new creations.  She values her customers and is willing to go the extra mile.  Eventually, she'll probably come say hi!
