About Us

ABBY means 'Gives Joy', exactly what our ABBY INVENTS books do. We show children that there is joy in discovery. Founded by Dr. Arlyne Simon in 2020, our mission is to inspire kid inventors, everywhere. We hope that our innovative products will bridge the gender and racial gap in patenting.
