Þorpið Tengslasetur - The Village: Community of Connection

The founders of Þorpið Tengslasetur (The Village: Community of connection) and the co-creators community are firm believers in the philosophy “it takes a village to raise a child” and the company was created as a response to a highly stressful environment in our society because of its impact on our children and their families.

Þorpið is a platform that supports secure attachment for families through various events, courses, and individual services that are also online. The services provided in Fjölskylduland will be very diverse but will always involve connection, playfulness, and exploration through many fun topics such as movement, creativity, sensory play, practical tools for engagement of children in daily life, reflection, balance in daily life, and self-development.

Viktória Komjáti

Viktória Komjáti was the marketing manager of Fjölskylduland’s crowdfunding campaign and the creator of this website.

Viktória was trained as a teacher, but her passion and profession led her into the world of marketing. As the mother of a highly energetic toddler, she knows firsthand just how badly Reykjavík needs this indoor playground. She was certain the idea would sell itself easily but she’s dedicated to helping spread the word.
