People often ask us about the word Hannahtopia®:
- “Where did the name Hannahtopia came from?”
- “What does it mean?”
From Heather (Hannahtopia co-founder and epilepsy/special needs mom):
Hannahtopia is named after my daughter Hannah.
- It is Hannah’s imagined place where everything is perfect.
- Her version of “utopia” – which we call “my topia”.
- Thus the name … Hannahtopia 🙂
It’s a unique boutique specializing in fun, colorful, comfy, safe, and functional products for children with special needs and suffering from medical challenges.
Children with conditions that mean they and their families experience or require:Many days spent in the ICU and the hospital
Many medical appointments and visits to therapists, and other specialists
Countless sleepless nights
Challenges associated with a “normal” day or an adventure outside in the world
A place that gathers together and offers all these things colorful, happy, positive, and comforting so that we can help these children and their families find their “topia”.
We want to help make each and every one of you feel special and loved! Our goal is to bring happiness to these children who with special needs and medical challenges. And also to their families!
Because every child should enjoy the benefits of fun, colorful, functional products. Happiness is healthy and helps with the healing process!
Products We Carry in the Shop
We decided we would offer a variety of items such as our signature NillyNoggin EEG Caps, soft colorful comfy blankets, one-of-a-kind handmade pillowcases, fluffy animals with adoption certificates, and quality G-tube accessories. As we discover new toys and therapeutic products we will be adding them to the shop!
Children and parents will benefit from the comfort of our products as they spend day after day in the hospital, ICU, medical appointments, through countless sleepless nights or just functioning through daily life on a fun adventure outside.
Hannahtopia also provides an option for friends and family to purchase gifts of necessity for special needs kiddos and their families. We are here to help you make your loved ones feel extra special!
Receiving a quality unique gift such as one of our cozy blankets will remind them of how special they are, that you are thinking of them and these gifts will last for many years. Flowers, although lovely, tend to be pricey, do not last and often times are not accepted in various settings. Balloons are bulky and difficult to take home as families are often juggling many supplies along with their child. We are here to offer an alternative to the traditional ‘thinking of you’ support.

When I think of Hannah’s imagined place where everything is perfect it always makes us ask this question: What is “perfect” anyway?
The truth is that each and every one of us has our own definition of perfect! Our own “topia”!
Our definition of “perfect” is celebrating each healthy day without a seizure, being in the moment, cherishing our time together and with family and friends, enjoying all the things in life that add comfort and happiness to our day and now sharing some of those things with all of you so that we may help to add a little happy to your perfect place.
Each and every one of us has our own definition of perfect. What is your definition of perfect? How would you describe your “topia”?
We’d love to hear from you! Tag us on social media posts with #thisisourtopia so we can follow and share your definition of perfect with others in our community!
