The Kidult Life offers apparel and accessories designed to empower and encourage individuals to embrace who they are. Our products are made to inspire and embrace a kidult life. A kidult (kid + adult) is someone who is a kid at heart no matter where they are in life.
As kids we are fearless and curious, taking on just about any challenge that comes our way. We’re usually taught to try new things and make friends with other kids by simply walking up to another kid and playing. As time passes, we take on various identities that eventually define who we are, often introducing fear and diminishing the curiosity that once made life simple.
The Kidult Life is a reminder to be fearless in who you are. Kidulting is a beautiful thing.
The Kidult Life was founded in 2019 by Dr. Amber Johnson after becoming the first African American woman to earn a PhD in Computer Science from Purdue University. Dr. Johnson realized that despite being in an environment that was not only unfamiliar to her but of her, she remained herself. Her experiences were unique and ultimately contributed to her success in accomplishing a goal that would impact many others in spaces that were not “created for them”. Thus, The Kidult Life was created to encourage fearlessness, curiosity, and an appreciation for individuality.
