About Us

Hi! My name is Teri. Nice to meet you! Let me tell you a little about myself: I have a degree in Textile design from Rhode Island School of Design and for many years worked for a large corporation designing baby bedding and accessories. I got a bit tired of the corporate life so I decided to start my own little company. My mom, Lee, is also very creative and talented so it was a natural fit to start the business with her. My husband, Eden, has designed many of our adorable little characters so it really is a family business!

We started Up~Chuckies in 2006 with a desire to create fun and funky gifts for new families. We like to say that the new Mommy and Daddy were once fun people. Now they are fun parents. We design gifts that reflect a sense of humor and a joy for life, but maintain that every new baby should be spoiled with luxury!

My husband and I have three daughters - a singleton and identical twins - and they are the light and joy of our lives. I found out first hand how wonderful our burp cloths and bibs are thanks to some serious newborn acid reflux! I am always looking to create products to make life a little easier and perhaps a bit more fun. 

We hope you find our products (designed by my husband and me and then made by my Mom and me!) to be as fun and funky as we do. If you have any questions or need any suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can also keep tabs on our new products via Facebook and Instagram.
