From one of the worlds most inspiring stories, reminiscent of friendship, adventure, imagination and technology, The Little Prince has touched the heart of millions over the course of nearly a century. As one of the most read, most translated books in modern history (over 250 languages), Saint-Exupéry's tale has been an eternal reminder to celebrate, rather than silence, the child within.

In a movement to bring to life the realms of our own limitless imagination, MyMiniFactory has partnered with The Little Prince in an effort to offer our community the chance to share their most inspirational, expressive and fundamental truths in the form of a unique design. This official partnership provides creators and innovators the opportunity to build off the world that inspired them as children and continues to pull at their heart strings today.

As creators, each of you are innovators, children, and playful humans at heart. And just as Saint-Exupéry was able to live a life as a pilot and writer, many of you continue to live truths that seem contradictory but are simply pieces of who you are, finding cohesiveness in what you do.

Take a deep dive into the world of The Little Prince, rediscover your youth and contemplate the questions of the meaning of life and the universe as you would when you were a child. Let only your imagination be your limit
