Kindling is the new magazine for people with children from the team who make Kinfolk. Packed with thought-provoking features, fun activities and playful photography and illustrations, it’s a place to explore the fresh perspectives that come with raising a child.
For the Body Issue, we’ve teamed up with Wow in the World to answer children’s most curious questions about their bodies, from “What is a vaccine?” to “Why do my teeth fall out?” We also hear from the Swedish social worker who successfully campaigned for the “snippa”—a neutral word to replace the many euphemisms used for female genitals, and report on the important role of parents and caregivers in making children feel good about their bodies.
Kindling is made to be read by adults and shared with children. In our fashion shoots, we’re making DIY hi-vis outfits and customizing crutches, wheelchairs and casts.
