About Us

Melody Johnson, Owner

Born in Denver, but raised in Iowa, Melody studied Early Childhood Education at Iowa State University. She taught at a variety of preschool programs around the Denver metro area as well as becoming a center director, working mostly with Head Start and Early Head Start programs. 

After her daughter was born she noticed that everywhere they went, she saw kids of all ages glued to their parent's smart phones. She wanted simple, engaging, easy to transport toys to stash in her diaper bag to offer up while they waited out to eat or at the doctor's office.

So, she started making them. 

As a stay at home mom with a degree in Early Childhood Education, Melody uses her educational background as well as her experience with her kids to create fun and educational materials. 

Given the right play opportunities, all kids develop to their fullest potential.

Melody is proud to say that Wonder's Journey meets all CPSC safety requirements.
