FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSHow do you pronounce Yoobi and where does the name come from?
Yoobi is pronounced 'YOU-BE'. Our Co-Founder, Ido Leffler, was thinking of a way to get people excited about what we were about to embark on, and kept going back to the notion of inspiring people to be whoever they want to be…You be the difference. You be great. You be awesome! You be YOU. YOOBI! What better name for a cute, nation-changing toucan?
Why the toucan?
Isn’t he cute and friendly? We introduced a number of characters to our market research board—i.e., a bunch of awesome kids we know. They loved the toucan the most, and how could they not? Thus, Yoobi was born.

It means that for every Yoobi item you purchase, one Yoobi item (based on classroom need) is contributed to a Yoobi Classroom Pack, which is donated through one of our donation partners to a classroom in need right here in the U.S. Donated items may include pencils, glue sticks, erasers, rulers, folders, crayons, colored pencils or other items. “One for you, one for me” is what kids say on the playground and at snack time. It’s how they learn to share, and play fair. Now they can make those choices as consumers, picking out some practical Yoobi goodies with you by their side.
Which grades does Yoobi support?
Currently Yoobi proudly supports elementary grade classrooms. We believe that creating equal access to school supplies at an early stage has the greatest multiplying effect on the chances of a child succeeding down the road. (There’s lots of good research supporting this idea.)
How are Yoobi donated items distributed?
Yoobi donates essential items to schools in need across the U.S. in the form of Classroom Packs. A Yoobi Classroom Pack contains the most fundamental tools needed for learning and creativity. We deliver Yoobi Classroom Packs directly to Kids In Need Foundation for direct distribution to classrooms in need.
Are the items donated different than the ones you sell?
No matter what Yoobi product you buy, your purchase will support the addition of one of the 12 items into the Yoobi Classroom Pack. The actual item donated is based on classroom need and may be of equal or lesser value than the item purchased. That way we can give kids the best balance of supplies. (It wouldn’t make sense to give a kid three staplers and no crayons, just because that’s what you bought, would it?) Our Yoobi Classroom Pack items use a different Yoobi blue and green to prevent in-store returns. That way we make sure that tools for creativity stick around for that very purpose.
