BEHIND THE SCENES
We know that growth requires innovation and continually striving to do better than ever before. That’s why we launched two exciting programs to help us deliver exceptional products at an extraordinary value.
MOMS’ ADVISORY PANEL
A team of real-life moms of children ages 3-6 have come on board to ensure LONE CONE delivers on its promise to build the best outdoor products for kids and toddlers. From product research and development, to product trials and honest reviews, our Advisory Panel is playing an active role in the future of LONE CONE.
In 2018, we became the first outdoor kids’ brand to offer an All-Season Guarantee. Every product now undergoes 100 hours of kid-testing before going to market, ensuring they are truly play proof.
IN THE OFFICE
It was a big year for LONE CONE by any measure and that is also true of our team. We brought on lots of new talent to help us achieve bigger and better things!

With all the new faces, we outgrew our original office space. Team LONE CONE renovated our warehouse into a open workspace and converted our former office into an employee lounge and conference room.
OUTSIDE THE OFFICE
As a company who loves helping families get outside more often, we strive to practice what we preach. From skiing to boating, the LONE CONE team reserves time every season to close the office for fun team-building activities.

IN THE COMMUNITY
Every year we are honored that so many families choose to make LONE CONE a part of their everyday lives. As a way of giving back to the communities that support us, we donate time, products, and proceeds to organizations that focus on the wellbeing of children and families. In 2018, we were thrilled to support:
Giraffe Laugh Early Learning Centers
Treasure Valley United Way
Caldwell School District
Women & Children’s Alliance
Boise Rescue Mission Ministries
Friends of Children and Families | Head Start
LONE CONE products are exclusively available on Amazon, which means we don’t get to interact with our local customers or companies as often as we’d like. That’s why we hosted the first (but certainly not the last!) Big Boise Holiday Giveaway. We partnered with eight fabulous businesses here in our hometown to give four lucky families a little extra reason to celebrate.
