About us

Natural, sustainable wooden toys and educational tools, to invite learning through play. Our toys are designed for child led, open ended play, and hope to spark a love and wonder for the natural world, through mindful materials and nature based learning. Handmade in Byron Bay, Australia.

Hello! My name is Kristie, but I mostly come to “Muuuum!” from our three boys, Eden, Orion and Bay. They’re an energetic, noisy, snuggly bear-hug full of creativity, love and inspiration. The other half of Zephyr’s Nest is my talented husband Brett, who turns our ideas into things at his workshop in Bangalow.
 
Zephyrs Nest was born out of our love for exploring the natural world, and incorporating that into our play at home, with nature based, open ended toys.
 
We’ve delighted in watching the magic that happens with our own children when they are connected to nature through play, and the infinite creativity that flows through open ended toys. These are the toys that have grown with them, and they still love to come back to, time and again.
 
Over the years, Brett has been making us a beautiful collection of wooden toys, many of which the boys have helped to design and create themselves. Zephyrs Nest is an extension of this, as we hope to spark a connection to nature through many more play journeys!
