What are the shipping costs?

We offer our Australian customers access to a low shipping rate of only $14.

This allows you to focus your budget on resources not delivery!

Please note that all orders are shipped by Jessica Langford - a new mum with a baby in one arm and a box of tools, toys and treasures in the other! As a result, we are only shipping twice a week at present. We also advise that Australia Post is experiencing longer and less predictable transit times due to Covid-19. We encourage you to order early to avoid delays or disappointment. 

Some bulky items attract a higher shipping fee, as listed on the relevant product pages. The $14 Shipping Rate applies unless otherwise specified.


My daughter was lucky enough to receive a number of gifts from her aunt. I just wanted to say how impressed we are with the quality of the products! All the items we received have been thoroughly enjoyed and  I can see already how much use they will get as our daughter finds different ways to utilise them as she grows. Thank you for putting together such a great collection of items.


I've been admiring your website again since my previous order and it won't be long before I place another order.I have recently set up a new learning based Playgroup for 2 to 4 year olds that involves a lot of Montessori philosophy and I've found your ideas and website a great source of inspiration - thank you!I look forward to dealing with you again in future.


Jessica, your level of customer service has blown me away and I'm sure that reflects in a thriving business and many happy customers! I so appreciate you making such an effort!


I am in great gratitude to you and your business. I've been made to feel like a very much valued customer. You have been so kind and understanding, thank you for all your help! :)
