Mo-On-The-Go is the ultimate, open-ended activity bag for children on-the-go! Developed in partnership with Union Square Play and it’s co-founder Jennie Monness, a leading early childhood educator, Mo-On-The-Go includes a custom designed backpack for kids (but can easily be carried by adults), filled with 9 open ended play objects and activities, all of which can be used over and over in never ending, different ways. Included in the kit are 12 activity cards, designed by Jennie, with thoughtful prompts to encourage and revamp how your child can play with their kit.
Ideal for the airplane, a long car ride, a family dinner at a restaurant, or even at home! The kit is for your little one just as much as it is for grown ups.
The Mo-On-The-Go backpack comes in Navy or Green and is accented by Rafi Nova’s signature handmade textiles upcycled from Hmong women artisans.

Who we partnered with
Union Square Play, co-founded by Anthony Rudolf, Sandra Di Capua, and Jennie Monness, offers engaging classes in NYC and a supportive online and offline parenting community. Union Square Play believes that community and thoughtful engagement are critical to kids and parents thriving. Jennie Monness is also the creator of Mo’ Mommies. She studied Psychology in Education and received her Master’s Degree from Teachers College, Columbia University. She started her career as an early childhood teacher for two and three-year-olds and then became an Educational Director of a preschool for approximately 8 years before becoming the Center Director of Explore + Discover Early Learning Center.
Marissa and Jennie were introduced via a mutual friend and immediately thought of the idea to collaborate on a product that would engage and inspire kids' imaginations. Combined with Jennie's background in early childhood education and creative approach to open-ended activities, and Marissa's background in product design and experience of being "on-the-go" with her two sets of twins, the two came up with this unique, one of a kind kit. After months of brainstorming and testing, Mo-On-The-Go was born and we're so excited to get it into the hands of little ones, making "on-the-go" just a bit easier for grownups!
