OUR MISSION

To create products that provide joy for children and parents alike

Enchantmints products are created to convey beauty, whimsy and goodness. You’ll find nary a pirate or superhero here. Each piece begins with all-original watercolor art and is specifically designed to nurture the well-being of children.

When you choose Enchantmints, you know you are bringing all good things into your little one’s life. Our Waldorf-inspired products nurture imagination, curiosity, gentleness, kindness, and a love of nature.

In supporting the wholesomeness of childhood, we work with original artists. Our products are made with this original artwork. While we use technology to complete the development process, all of our products spring from the fully human work of artists.

ABOUT US

Our People

MARKE LEVENE

Owner of Enchantmints

Marke Levene is the creative force of Enchantmints, artistic director, head of product development, chief of manufacturing and general all-around wizard. He directs all ballerina, pony and magical creature traffic like the boss he is.

Marke has been a performer for more than 65 years (yep, he was a tv star at age 5) and has dedicated himself to the arts for decades. He has been an innovator and entrepreneur since wayyy back in 1968, when he was in the furniture business in his hometown of Los Angeles, California.

MARKE'S INTERESTS:

A eurythmist, actor and former Waldorf teacher, Marke tells a mean story. He loves growing flowers of every size and color in his Maine garden. And an ideal day for him would be enjoying time on a boat and swimming in the warm sea.

EOWYN LEVENE

Marketing & Operations

Eowyn supports in the background here at Goodness for Children and Enchantmints. 

EOWYN LEVENE DOES AND LOVES:

Eowyn gives a mean massage (like, professionally). She loves to rustle up something tasty for dinner when friends come over, preferably involving baked goods. And an ideal day includes hiking in mountains, couch time with her husband and cats, and finally making progress on that never-ending knitting project.

OUR ADVENTURE

OUR PROCESS

Enchantmints products begin with fine art by several artists from around the world, all under Marke Levene’s guidance. The artwork is next interpreted and transformed by Marke and our graphic design gurus. After a series of careful final steps, our magical Enchantmints products are complete and ready to be loved by children everywhere.

Our products are made by a world leader in music box production in China for the past 40 years. Marke has enjoyed a long relationship with the owners and has visited the factory many times over the years. Rest assured that all people who work in the factory are properly compensated and treated with dignity. The facility and the products adhere strictly to all safety regulations, meeting and exceeding all of the highest standards.

OUR ADVENTURE

OUR HISTORY

Enchantmints began on the first day of January in 2004, the happy result of Marke’s collaboration with Rob Flanders. The two had been working together in product development in the previous 4 years. Yet for the seed of the story, we must go back in time.

When his daughter Eowyn was 4, Marke started a small woodworking company in England, making lyres for children. He purchased the designs of Woodpecker Toys, located in the same village where the Levenes lived. Woodpecker Toys had been in danger of disappearing, and fortunately Marke rescued it. Soon he expanded the business into an international distribution system of high quality handmade wooden toys. The company thrived throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

Marke and his wife Barbara moved back to California in 1996, the same year Eowyn went off to college. Since product development was Marke’s mainstay, he began working with The Museum of Modern Art in Boston, The Nature Company and many more. These adventures would lead him to meet Rob in Berkeley, California. And that’s where and how Enchantmints was born!
