Child Entrepreneur Expected To Retire By Age 15


A 10-year-old entrepreneur could have just five more years of work ahead of her after she launched an incredibly successful range of fidget toys.



Meet Pixie Curtis from Sydney, Australia, who was working on Pixie’s Fidgets with the help of her mum and businesswoman Roxy Jacenko. The idea came about after children across the country became obsessed with fidget toys, prompting Pixie to create her own colourful range.


Pixie’s Fidgets proved a success from the word ‘go’ as the toys sold out in the first 48 hours and earned over $200,000 within the company’s first month of operation.



In an interview with Stellar, Jacenko praised the ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ her daughter has shown ‘at such a young age’, remarking: ‘I never had it, although it was drummed into me that I had to succeed. When I was 14, I got a job at McDonald’s because that’s what you did back in my day. So, I guess to me the biggest thing is her drive as an entrepreneur.’.


The mother went on to admit she had nurtured her daughter’s business-orientated mind but emphasised that ‘she’s still got it’, adding that is the ‘most rewarding part’ for her.



Pixie’s Fidgets form part of Pixie’s Pix: a range of toys, games, and children’s items sold online in a franchise Jacenko started for her daughter when she was just a baby.

According to their official website, Jacenko oversees product development, marketing, and branding while Pixie is in charge of product testing and ensuring ‘everything runs smoothly’.



Pixie also promotes her business on Instagram, which is managed by her mother, where she has gained nearly 90,000 followers. Jacenko even holds that the success of the business may enable Pixie to look forward to a very early retirement, as early as 15.
