how we got our wings
Goldbug was founded in 1968 by Bill Gold when he discovered a great item called the TV Bootee. The company that began with one infant bootie product has grown into the largest distributor of infant and children’s accessories in the U.S. and is still owned and operated by Bill Gold's daughter, Katherine Gold.
Today, goldbug continues to accessorize generations of children through its innovative design, manufacturing expertise and strong retail relationships. Goldbug’s products are sold through various widely recognized retail partners, including Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Carters, OshKosh, and Amazon. Goldbug’s excellent partnership with these retailers is an important component of the company’s success. In 2020 Goldbug was awarded Walmart’s vendor of the year award for infant apparel.
In addition to the apparel accessories, Goldbug is a leader in creating and marketing travel accessories for infants. Goldbug patented the first infant head support in 1979 and has continued to patent other innovations over the years. The travel product line now includes head supports, travel mirrors, harnesses and backpacks along with other travel gear, a fast-growing area for Goldbug’s owned brands.
Goldbug has long-standing licensing relationships where they bring their category expertise to beloved consumer brands. Carter’s, OshKosh, Levi’s, Eddie Bauer, Fruit of the Loom and Disney are or have been important brand licenses. These licenses have been in place for many years, underscoring the importance of partnership to the Goldbug culture.
