As a new mum living in a small country town, I found it impossible to find long-lasting, educational and sustainable toys for my daughter. With the nearest major town being several hours away I still struggled to find the products I was looking for, which is definitely NOT the "throwaway" items found in the big department stores. I was looking for something more unique and timeless.
THE SEARCH BEGAN
I spent many hours researching products that met my stringent criteria for both quality and affordability. I then realised that I had a passion for these products and my excitement grew so much that I decided it was time to test the market and see if others were wanting the same high-quality toys that I did.
LOCAL MARKETS HELPED ME GROW
After spending several years selling mainly wooden toys and puzzles at local markets I realized that there was a definite demand for the quality products I had and that many other parents were struggling with the same issues, where to find them.
LTT GREW FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH
That was when Little Tots Treasures became official and took the plunge in 2012 and opened a "very little" bricks & mortar store in Goondiwindi, Queensland. Since then I have expanded my range of brands and moved twice more into a larger shop. At present we have dozens of quality brands and thousands of lines, all hand-picked by myself and my team. Always with an emphasis on quality, price and brand behind the products.
ONLINE FOR CONVENIENCE WAS THE WAY TO MOVE AHEAD
After several years of only selling locally, I knew that the way forward was definitely online. I had so many travellers pass through asking, "do you have a website?". It was time. Times are changing and many parents/grandparents, aunts/uncles and friends are so time poor that I decided to bring my beautiful store into the world of online. I post all around Australia with the satisfaction of knowing that we bring so much joy to many "little people" with our endless range of gorgeous products.
SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY
Today I employ two staff members, both local mothers that share my enthusiasm to grow our range of quality brands and give our customers the very best customer service. Thanks to our local community and their continuing support my dream has become a reality and my vision will continue to grow into the household name for all parents and grandparents of young children. As a thank you, I regularly make donations to community organisations to help raise much-needed funds.
We are always here to help, and "YES", you can speak to a real person.
