Founded in the spring of 2009 in Newport Beach California, toddland was a little world that formerly only existed in the minds (and hearts) of Todd Masters and a few of his Paul Frank Industries alumni. He decided to round up a few more of his best good friends and pull all the ideas they had out of their mind caves and share them with the world (or their parents, since they have to buy it whether they liked it or not). Founded on the concept of "make rad stuff," they have been doing that every since. Their philosophy is "if you are going to take the time to design something, make it as awesome as possible."
