With a bunch of Mums on our team, we’re able to test our creations on our kids in real-life situations. This allows us to make sure all of our products stand up to the rough and tumble of life with busy active kids (we’ve got 7 between us). These budding product testers really push our range to the limits and that’s how we know they’ll be perfect for your kids.
Back in 2005, my husband Nigel and I had a vision of creating name labels that would help stop lost property by staying stuck for years and looking super cute at the same time. With my design skills and Nigel’s printing background, we were able to join forces and grow a tiny seed of an idea into what it is today, working side by side along the way.
Over the last 15 years, we’ve gone from just the two of us to having a wonderful team of people who share our passion and thankfully our workload. Producing thousands of orders every day in our crazy back to school season definitely requires a lot of extra hands! Selling to families outside of Australia has meant that we’re now busy no matter what time of year it is. It’s incredible to reflect on how much the team has grown over these 15 years and how much busier our lives are too.
Becoming parents to our son in 2013, brought us a whole new perspective on what parents really needed. Without a doubt, we had underestimated what a life-changing experience it would be bringing a new life into the world. His arrival inspired us to find the perfect balance between home and work life and we’ll always be grateful to our son for giving us this gift. He’s the most wonderful achievement we’ve had together as husband and wife, and our business is something we hope he will be a part of building even further in the future.
In search of our perfect work-life balance, we came to realise that a new level of organisation was needed now that we were parents; We had to plan things more than ever before.
It was this experience that helped our business to expand into designing products that help families to calm the chaos in their busy lives. We started with creating things to use in our own lives & improved on them until we felt they were perfect for sharing with other busy families. Since then we’ve helped thousands of families iron out the kinks in their organisation, and we love hearing about how our experience has turned into something that now positively impacts other families.
