Craftsmanship Has Never Been This Cute with Ant’s Pocket

It is very impossible for anyone to miss their booth at the Expo Kid 5.

Ant’s Pocket is one of the eye-catching exhibitors at the event because of their super cute and unique handmade products. When I approached the booth and checked on them, a simple slim woman wearing a peach top with an owl pin paired with jeans, with long hair and eyeglasses greeted me with a smile. She said that her name is Anne and she’s (the creative hand and mind) behind Ant’s Pocket.


Anne is very accommodating and friendly. It’s my first time to meet her but my heart feels that she is a very down-to-earth person. I really admire her craftsmanship because I was only given a little of it by God. Want proof? I can only draw stick people and houses. I hope my daughter won’t get this from me. LOL! πŸ™‚

With Mommy Analyn Querubin Mateo aka Anne, the mompreneur behind Ant’s Pocket

I asked about how her business started and she told me that this is just a hobby for her. She just loves making reference materials for her sons’ school projects or activities. She’s been making a lot of alphabets, numbers, finger-puppets, etc. made of felt paper since 2006, and one day, she noticed that it already grew up as a stash. Her friends and family encouraged her to turn it into a business.

Did you know that ANTS is actually an acronym for Alphabets. Numbers. Toys. Scrapbooking?

Bookmarks, purses, pencil cases and many more!

All of her products are handmade. Anne also mentioned to me that Ant’s Pocket also serves as livelihood for about 4 homemakers in Caloocan City. These mothers serve as her sewers.

These bunch of felt animals are super duper cute! I want to buy them all! πŸ™‚

Ant’s Pocket also can make you a personalized bag! πŸ™‚

If you’re looking for an alternative to photobooths or face paintings in your child’s parties or school activities, you might want to consider having an Ant’s Pocket booth. If only I have come to know about this when N celebrated her first birthday, I’d be inviting Ant’s Pocket to provide personalized treats for our guests. Anne’s business is home-based in Las Pinas City.

This is what I got for my daughter from Ant’s Pocket during the Expo Kid 2013. This is N’s personalized baby bag tag. She likes the giraffe very much.

This is my next project: the alphabet set. I want this for my daughter so she can have fun while learning about letters. I’ll save up for you, I promise! πŸ™‚

Now that you know more about Ant’s Pocket, Anne and I have teamed up so one of my readers could experience her products! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

This owl can stand on its own and could be placed on your working table or your child’s study table as a pen holder (the owl has pockets on its waist on both sides). We are giving this cute bear coin purse, too. πŸ™‚

    I make sure to incorporate play into my sons lessons and assignments.
    Lets say his lessons that I need to review is about action words. I then encourage my son
    to play Charades. This is a perfect game where he will learn his lesson and at the same time he
    will have fun and enjoyable time too!

    Me and my kids love to draw, paint & play with clay & stacking toys. These activities help my kids learn. Like, instead of just reading from a book, we do puzzles & draw or build items that represents an alphabet. I make sure that I spend time with them playing & learning.
