Working with expert partners, we are helping to remove plastics from the ocean and transform them into rPET – recycled polyester yarn that is used to create our accessories. The result is cleaner oceans, and a second life for plastics that would otherwise pollute them for years to come. We are initially rolling this out across a selected range of accessories – but we are working hard to ensure that every Micro accessory will use recycled ocean plastics very soon.
At Micro we're firm believers that everyday actions impact the planet we live on. So we're proud to launch our new range of Eco scooters - made using discarded fishing nets that pollute our oceans. Working with partners, we recover discarded ocean plastic and transform it into the durable, colour-pop material used for our decks. What hasn't changed is the deluxe ride kids love - from intuitive lean-to-steer design, to adjustable handlebar for years of scooting adventures. And of course all Micros are built to last - with the highest quality, replaceable parts - so they can be passed on and never end up in landfill. Available in our exclusive Ocean Green colourway. Now we can help kids not just explore their planet - but protect it too.

"We’re tech geeks and proud of it! Fiddling with technology comes naturally to us and we don’t stop until we are 100% happy and know that you will be too. So, we spent thousands of hours testing the sticky films and wall-friendly adhesives for our VertiPlay toys. And asked ourselves, why can’t baby products do more than one thing? So we spent months working on products that would be useful even when your child is 5-years old! So our PortaPlay is the first ever activity center that converts to a play table and folds away in a jiffy. The Cocoon chair goes from bassinet to high chair and the VertiPlay toys work as well for play as wall decor!
We love experimenting with new technologies to amaze your child (and you) every day and we also never stop looking for materials that are better for the planet."

We are an Australian family business, based in The Dandenong Ranges, Victoria, Australia. Our family comprises of mum, dad and two kids (2 years and 3 months). While visiting a sister school, in China, I was gifted a traditional silk. Upon starting family leave with our daughter the silk was brought home from school and was stashed away with all my other school resources. While looking for some blu-tak one day this treasure was found hidden amoung some books, and the rest is history.
We found that this nontraditional toy naturally became part of our family’s daily play. At a young age we waved it softly above our daughter and she admired the colours and lightness. When she was a little older a favourite activity was playing peek a boo. Now we are regularly required to wrap her teddies and dolls or help her tie the silks as a cape or dress. Wanting to share the joy that this simple toy brought to our family led us to the creation of Play Silkies. We took the leap to start a small business that aims to educate and provide beautiful open-ended toys that promote family interaction. Our motto is “less toys and more play”.

When Edward Harvey invented the original squares and triangles that snapped together to help the formation of cubes and prisms in the early 1970s, he had little idea that nearly 50 years later children around the world would still be enjoying the innovation.

This innovative tool has grown in popularity and has helped and inspired millions of children around the world.

Tired of the many poor quality beach toys that were on the market, offering no emotional connection, we decided to make our own brand.

This is how Quut was born.

Benno Pecher founded Regenbogenland (means rainbow land in English) in 1980. His background in architecture and his love for wooden toys made him come up with the idea of Regenbogenland inspired by the teaching of Maria Montessori. They have been trying to transform colours and shapes into art and architecture to give blocks new shapes rather then the basic shapes such as cubes, spheres and prisms found in other building blocks. The elements are based on the dimensions of the Fröbel building blocks. Wooden blocks and toys help to lead children to be patient and creative.
With their concentration comes the magic of watching the children create a magical world around them. Their building materials playfully encourage this conceptual thinking and spatial imagination without making ready-made specifications. Coloured elements made of wood and acrylic glass give the imagination plenty of room for your own interpretations.
What is special about these games are the many hidden possibilities that arise with all rainbow games. They give the children space to let their creativity run free.
The combination of wood and glass (precious stones) is unique.
The high-quality material is enthusiastically accepted by the children and does not lose its appeal even after years.
Even small children can play with it and develop their skills over time.
Older children quickly dare to tackle unusual building projects.
Rover Education Montessori range provides resources to support classroom practices and ideas which have had a profound influence on the education of young children.
The Montessori materials help bring structure and order to the child’s mind. The young child is trying to “make sense” of the world around them. They are exposed on a daily basis to new stimuli that we as adults often take for granted such as new sights, sounds, smells colours, and textures. Montessori believe that we must engage the child’s senses through concrete experiences with materials that will help them discriminate different qualities and concepts.
All activities, while teaching specific skills, are an indirect preparation for more complex skills and concepts to come. Children of all ages love to sort objects. They may sort according to size, shape, texture, colour or some other quality - this is the beginning of classification. The child building a tower is not only developing visual discrimination but is also learning new language that will lead to mathematical comparisons and concepts.

‘SEEKERS’ is launched alongside an ethos of getting children off their screens, out and about and simply looking around them at their surroundings. It is well accepted that children are too attracted to screen-based pastimes, and we see and feel the frustration of parents as they face the constant challenges that electronic tablets can bring with them. But, we think the tide is turning…
From an early age, we believe it is essential to engage children with their surroundings and make it fun to be outdoors; this will hopefully generate a life-long love for nature and the environment.

The love for games, toys and for wood (as a material) is the personal basis of my work. Living in the countryside close to nature ourselves, discovering nature’s treasures and knowing of its endangerment constitute our working principle: natural-organic-ecological
. Since wood as a material possesses unique haptics, it can be discovered by children playfully and in an unspoilt way. The feeling of warmth, the solidity and the smell of wood address the child’s senses. As we work with certified natural materials only, children can also explore the toy orally. Wood is a renewable resource which, at the end of its usage time, returns to the natural cycle and does not burden our ecological system. The entire manufacturing process is committed to this principle. Wood requires a shaping, which in the light of this principle impacts the co-education of the child’s play pedagogically and balances it at the same time as it exudes a peacefulness and aesthetic appearance. The Production is work-intensive and requires knowledge and attention to detail. This makes the products valuable. A wooden dollhouse or a farmstead are gifts for life which can be passed on through many generations.

Did you know that babies develop in so many ways during their first five years that it dwarfs everything they learn over the rest of their lives? Neither did we. Until 2002, when we had our son Sid and read everything we could get our hands on about babies’ development. That’s when we discovered, among other things, these fascinating gems…
• newborns can only see as far as 12 to 15 inches away (around the length of your forearm and hand) • they are most taken with their parents’ faces • they are drawn to simple but repeating geometric shapes in black and white • which is great, because high-contrast visual patterns promote infant brain development • at around 1 year of age, they begin to recognize animal forms, later calling them by name
As a graphic designer (Surya) and teacher (Dave), we were fascinated by the idea of helping our baby’s brain develop by literally playing with visuals. But instead of just drawing black lines on a piece of paper, we created a planet of animals, which continued to entertain Siddu as he got older. Again, we discovered…
• as motor skills develop, babies start to grab the cards to look at them • as you tell stories for each animal, your baby may listen and look, starting to turn the card again and again • as a baby approaches one year, he or she may carry the cards around, sharing them with you and ask for a story. eventually he’ll start to be able to point out each animal as you name them.
Wee Gallery’s scope expanded as we learned along with Sid, and along with his sister Anya, who was born in 2005. They’re now helping us choose animals and weigh in on their design. Surya and the kids paint lots of versions and then choose the best ones. We even often travel together to trade shows. Wee Gallery has been great for our family and we hope it enriches your family’s life too.
