About Us

Mary Carlson Pap

Mary Carlson Pap lives in Minnesota with her husband, Bruce, and their dog, Indy. She was one of six children who grew up in Northern Minnesota, the daughter of a college math teacher and stay-at-home mom. Mary earned a degree in music, art, and education, got married, and had three beautiful daughters.

Once her daughters were all in school, she returned to get her Master's Degree in education. After teaching many years in public schools, Mary transitioned into researching, developing and implementing enrichment and accelerated programs for students. Her research and program development work encompassed Pre-K thru 12th Grade educational programming. Mary also provided educational opportunities for parents during her career.

Mary is the grandma to seven grandchildren. She enjoys the simple pleasures in life — traveling, exercising, reading, playing the piano, biking, having coffee or wine dates with friends, attending concerts and plays, and going to lots of sporting events and activities to cheer her grandkids on!

Back of Book

Mary invented The Potty Fairy to help her friend. Later, if a child was struggling with the potty training process, she shared the tale and provided a storybook and a lovely pair of "Potty Fairy pants." She observed that the fairy tale was of interest to every child, who would be delighted to receive the special pair of underwear. The fairy would give the child a Potty Fairy pants or underwear, and a fabric crown, to let them know how special they are and so others could see! The Potty Fairy also leaves surprise rewards when they notice children being successful potty training.

As Mary's daughters grew up, they had babies. Soon the darling babies grew up to be toddlers, and we shared the fairy tale of The Potty Fairy when they were ready to potty train.

Over time, a song and poem were written. Although Mary was busy teaching and raising her beautiful daughters, she still found time for The Potty Fairy. She sold at art fairs and malls and visited a toy company out east.  It was a fun and busy time, and the years went by quickly.

The newest release of The Potty Fairy e-book was illustrated by Artist Britta Quick.

Guylaine Gagnon

Guylaine Gagnon is a French Custom Doll Maker and Sewer. She has been sewing for 40 plus years. When she was younger, she would make clothes for her Barbie dolls. She wanted to create something different from what the store was selling as she did not like what they were offering. Guylaine’s aunt, her Dad’s sister, taught her how to hand sew first. After a time, when she became proficient at hand sewing, she taught her how to use a sewing machine. At that time she was given her Grandmother's old Singer sewing machine to use.

Since that time, Guylaine taught herself through trial and error. She loves a challenge and would never turn down a challenge. She has enjoyed creating The Potty Fairy dolls, crowns, and teeshirts. Guylaine is excited to create a custom doll, crown or teeshirt for your child.

Fred and Elna

Fred and Elna live in Florida. They created The Potty Rider, which began as a motorcycle and has expanded into a variety of models to meet the interests of children who may like to use the Potty Rider. Each Potty Fairy Potty Rider is handcrafted by Fred and Elna and their team of local businesses.

Fred and Elna have always been entrepreneurs, especially in their later years. They have backgrounds in manufacturing, customer service, and engineering. Both worked for many years in the structural steel industry before semi retiring. They also owned and operated a country inn and restaurant for 9 years before moving to Florida. They were not ready to retire quite yet so Fred invented the Potty Rider and their journey began!
