I'm creative octopus, Mumma, Wife, nature play enthusiast and liberal emoji user.  I'm into living simply and creating things with what you have. 

A big kid that never really grew up. I believe in the power of nature, imagination and the importance of play for children and adults! 

This store of mine that started as a Local, Handmade & Fair Trade shop in my home town has grown and changed along with my life and the interests of my child. For the last 3 years we have been solely focused on nature play and the shop reflects this love for connecting with nature and nurturing a child's relationship with mother earth whilst making as little negative impact on the environment as possible. 

The selection of items I sell here are intended to sit alongside your child’s own learning and exploration of their unique natural environment, whether that be a pot plant on a balcony, a dandelion poking joyfully through a crack in the path or a muddy puddle in the backyard. The tools and resources here are those that in a child's hands can become whatever they need them to be. 

Items are carefully selected with ethically manufacturing and sustainability always at the forefront. Wherever possible recycled, biodegradable or recyclable packaging is used. If you received bubble wrap from me, rest assured it wasn't it first use and I hope it won't be its last.
