Our Story

Second Generation Alumni and Child, Past Present and Future

As graduates of Virginia Tech, we (Mitch and Pete) have always loved the gameday passion and association that universities bring to community, friends, and family. Showing our school pride while living in Hawaii connected us to an otherwise hidden fraternity of fans and helped us feel the nostalgic comfort of home.

In 2016/17 we had our first children six months apart and began filling our children’s drawers with university attire. To complete the collection, we wanted a truly unique pacifier holder and surrounding lifestyle accessories that would bond our children with our school spirit in a way that was meaningful to them. 

With the creation of Pascots, we introduce our children to the stories that teams and universities have given to us as adults - embodied in fun-loving mascot products that they can grow with, hold, and remember as their own source of comfort.
