In this week’s episode of the “Power Kid Podcast,” host Phil Albritton of Power Kid Design speaks with Jennifer Mines, vice president of Iscream, a company that provides consumers with lifestyle products created under a simple motto: to “make the ordinary a little more extraordinary.”
Mines’ career bridges high fashion and toys. Prior to entering the toy industry at Iscream, she worked with high-profile brands such as House & Garden, Calvin Klein, Barneys, and Vogue.
