Hello there!

Hattingdon® is a hat wearing cartoon horses designed to bring you a hatful of smiles.

Vivian Grant Farrell, the creator of Hattingdon, came up with the Hattingdon design concept in 2007 when she suddenly found herself spending Christmas alone in Washington DC and used her time trying to come up with a design concept that would appeal to kids in her horse charity’s gift shop.

The first Hattingdon was so well received she began to design others and before she knew it she had a hit series on her hands.

It turned out that Hattingdon has a broad appeal and popular with “kids of all ages”.

Farrell says she knows a design is successful if it makes her smile. Or better yet laugh out loud! That is how she coined the phrase that Hattingdon is made with a “hatful of smiles”.
