Kingsley & Co is a project of Ykids children's charity. We aim to inspire children to exceed expectations and explore their imaginations through becoming engaged in literacy.


The shop is named after Mary Kingsley, a Victorian explorer, who defied the odds to travel the world and write all about what she had discovered.
