Scandinavian Child was founded in 2003 when Brenda Berg discovered the Svan high chair in a boutique while visiting family in Sweden while pregnant with her first child. Her discovery became her passion and from this she founded Scandinavian Child, with the goal of providing parents with high quality juvenile products that are stylish, functional, and most importantly safe for children. With this mission in mind, the company philosophy became “Childhood Without Compromise™.”
Today, Scandinavian Child manufactures and distributes products under the Svan brand and distributes products throughout North America for some of the world’s finest brands.
Our Founder: Brenda Berg
In 2001, pregnant with her first child, Brenda Berg searched for the perfect high chair. On a trip to Sweden she discovered the Svan high chair. Her discovery fueled her desire to bring that high chair and the best quality products to other families. Six months later she left her position as a business management consultant and founded Scandinavian Child. Over a decade later, the company continues to find products that are safe, easy to use, environmentally responsible and beautifully designed. After 10 years of growing Scandinavian Child, Brenda is currently on a road trip around the United States and Canada with her husband and two children, exploring North America and partnering with Firstbook.org to bring at least 6,000 books to children in need all across the country.
