About The Founder



My name is Tiffney T. Laing. I am a former college educator with more than 17 years of experience developing student leaders as an administrator and instructor of leadership studies. I am also the founder and owner of Bevy & Dave, an educational toy company and the creator of the multi award-winning “History Makers Puzzle Block Set.”

For many years I was frustrated with the presentation of Black history in school textbooks, classrooms and teaching materials. After having my daughter, I was reminded that children learn through play; Bevy & Dave was soon born as my contribution towards a solution.

With the belief that one's perception of history shapes and impacts their worldview and level of achievement, I decided to create children toys as learning tools that share Black history through the lens of self-leadership and as instruments to educate, inspire and empower children to be their best selves.

After 2 ½ years in business, I recently took the leap and left my career in higher education to devote more time to expanding Bevy & Dave’s reach. I hope you join me on this journey; subscribe and follow us on social media @bevyanddave.


Thank You,
