Started in 2009 in Melbourne, Australia by Victoria Reading who simply couldn’t find the right sort of toys for her boys Harry and Jock. Victoria's boys are an integral part of the Freckled Frog testing team who have not been afraid to speak their minds on when Victoria has got a design right and also when she needed to go back to the drawing board. Combining their expertise with Victoria’s first-hand knowledge of what parents and educators wanted, The Freckled Frog has created over 150 products that are designed to be open-ended, gender neutral toys promoting inclusiveness and cultural diversity ensuring the end result has everyone smiling.
With each and every toy created, The Freckled Frog hope to inspire children’s:
1. Imagination through engaging open-ended play
2. Creativity through self-exploration
3. Learning through fun activities
4. Playtime through pure happiness
The Freckled Frog is also passionate about keeping our forests alive. The Freckled Frog are proud to be FSC certified, which ensures that their wood comes from sustainable sources, helping to conserve and protect forests and wildlife.
Since 2015, The Freckled Frog has been a corporate donor of The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation - which is very close to Ada and Lottie love's heart.
We have found The Freckled Frog's products to be of great design and quality. We feel that their products are not only fun but great educational tools.
The Quins Group is a Melbourne-based, Australian owned company that designs and manufactures educational toys, teaching equipment and children’s furniture for Australia and export markets.
Qtoys mission is to design and manufacture products that are instrumental to physical and mental development of children from birth to seven years old.

Qtoys are made from plantation timber of rubber and acacia trees. Plantation rubber trees are taped for natural latex. Old plantation rubber trees are cleared to grow young ones. Acacia trees are planted by farmers in Vietnam to prevent soil erosion and to supply the paper industry.
Qtoys recycle plantation rubber and acacia wood into our products. Plantation timber gives Q Toys the natural beauty of wood patterns, while leaving unharmed natural forests.
We have used Qtoys since Ada and Lottie were six months old. We have always found their quality to be great, and have appreciated the natural wooden textures of the toys. We love that most pieces are hand-made under a fair trade agreement using natural timber - giving each toy its own uniqueness.
