Mr kipp and little jimmy eco toys - Australia

Hire of beautiful Eco- friendly wooden toys to the Ballarat area on a monthly basis! Sales of quality wooden toys Australia wide!

It was a few years before having kids that I had a pretty big health scare. Upon researching ways to remove the toxins from my life and return my body to a state of health, I came across the toxins that were present in children’s plastic toys. At first I filed that away for a later date. But that discovery has now become my passion.

"I am passionate about timber toys and improving the quality of life for our children, ourselves, our community and our planet!"

When I had my first child I naturally turned toward wooden toys. The idea to start a wooden toy hire business came from a personal need. My eldest, Kipp was born 10 days before Christmas and therefore would tire of all his toys well before mid year!  

I couldn’t afford to be buying wooden toys all the time and I felt an unease with the cheap plastic toys I was buying to fill that void, that would break easily and end up in landfill. .After hiring toys to my local town of Ballarat for a while it became apparent that not all wooden toys are created equal. I soon began selling a couple of quality brands Australia wide.

Cuddle + kind

image31

There's nothing we love more than being parents. We think nurturing our three children is the most important, rewarding and sometimes challenging job in the world! We created cuddle+kind because we wanted to make beautiful hand-knit dolls that help feed children. So for every cuddle+kind doll sold, we give 10 meals to children in need. We're proud that our dolls are made with natural, high-quality cotton because it's important to us that they're safe, soft and cuddly.

We're also super proud that every doll is lovingly handcrafted by incredible women artisans in Peru, providing them with a sustainable, fair trade income.
