If you've been into a Walmart,Target or JC Penney lately, you may have seen Afro Unicorn products scattered around various departments, including toys, party supplies, clothing, jewelry, hair & beauty supplies, school supplies, Holiday supplies... and the list keeps growing. The brilliant, visionary woman who created it all is our Guest of Honor for 2023! April Showers is a world class entrepreneur, based in LA, with boundless energy and multiple business under her belt.

And, WHAT a character! Afro Unicorn is the coolest unicorn to join the herd in a LONG time. We love all unicorns so much, and this one has a special message ... Be kind, spread love, and remember that you are unique, divine and magical!
