Howdy and welcome to KindtoKidz. In case you're wondering, KindtoKidz is one of those living room business stories - well, kind of...:)
It did start in a living room in 2010, but 8 years later is still being run from a living room...However with partner warehouses across Australia, we are no longer storing stock in the garage and can dedicate all our time to looking after our customers and making sure everything is running smoothly.
KindtoKidz began with a vision of providing mothers with safer alternatives for their children. It literally started with selling chemical free wipes at a playgroup, inspired by the book Chemical Free Kids by Dr. Sarah Lantz. This then evolved into making baby hampers with natural and organic baby products.
Wooden toys were then added to the mix after the frustration the founder felt with the mounds of plastic and noisy toys received for baby and birthday gifts. She wanted to offer parents a better alternative. Not only for children, but also for the environment - which equals the future of all children on earth!
From there the business grew into the wonderful store it is today - offering a plethora of quality toys, furniture and natural baby products for conscious consumers.
With fast and friendly customer service and quick order processing and dispatch times, we like to make life as hassle free as we can for all the parents, grandparents, family friends and child care centre's who order from us!
