Our little man, born late in 2015, inspired the creation of Modern Monty. We started out hand-making toys, but Modern Monty has now evolved to create a range of luxe, boutique, educational toys, puzzles and games.
Meg has a degree in Applied Science and Psychology and a Masters of Counselling, along with 12 years experience working in psychology, mental health and clinical governance. Her knowledge of children's development and learning theories has helped to ensure our products are engaging and educational.
Kelvin has a background in professional landscape photography, and has an artist's eye for detail, ensuring the final product and packaging is beautiful and eye-catching.
Classic toys and educational products have been reimagined to encourage a deep connection with the natural world, from a young age. We believe it's important for children to learn about and appreciate nature. We intend our products to help nurture little conservationists.
Our ongoing collaboration with Brisbane based artist and friend, Amanda Borchers, has led to our current range, with her stunning, watercolour art featured frequently. Amanda's artwork truly captures the spirit of the wild and the time and skill that goes into each artwork makes our products extra special.
The eye-catching aesthetic of our toys and games is intended to provide joy with a minimalistic, modern appearance. Our products are designed to fit seamlessly into any modern or earthy home, and the beautiful packaging ensures they make perfect gifts too. We know that any Modern Monty product will be a very well-received gift.
Our manufacturers are FSC certified, which means that they operate in an environmentally, economically and socially responsible way. All efforts are made to utilise natural and organic materials when we can and we are proud to offer a range of plastic-free, earth-friendly products.
