When six-year-old Oliver “Ollie” Fequiere considered what to share with his classmates for show and tell, he came up with the perfect item; a bath bomb from his very own business.
“The kids were asked to bring in something that made them unique. His first idea was to bring in a picture of himself modeling. He has modeled for the past three years and really enjoys it. He wasn't sure if that was unique enough and then that weekend he went to a classmates birthday party and gifted her an Ollie's Fizzie Bath Bomb. She was so thrilled with the gift that he decided he wanted to bring in a bath bomb and talk about his business. He was so excited to not only talk about Ollie’s Fizzies, but also to demo the bath bomb for his friends,” Ollie’s mom, Daria King told Because of Them We can.
The business, which was founded in 2018, was Ollie's idea.
“He has always been fairly business savvy. With modeling, he loves earning money and understands that work equals dollars. After we made bath bombs for his Christmas stocking in 2017... he decided he wanted to make some to sell to his friends.”
Ollie’s Fizzies aren’t your average bath bombs. They come outfitted with miniature toys, vibrant colors and unique themes that would make any child excited to take a bath.
The operation is also a family affair.
“Both his dad and I also own our own business and we help him with different things. Daddy does all the graphics and is the muscle when we bring out the Fizzie stand. I generally do all of the making. Ollie does the testing, deciding, packing and videos for all of the products.”
Even better, a percentage of Ollie's sales supports Black Girls Code.
