Modern Monty was founded by Australian-based, new-parents Meg and Kelvin in 2015. They started out hand-making toys and have since 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.
Their classic toys and educational products have been reimagined to encourage a deep connection with the natural world, from a young age. They believe it's important for children to learn about and appreciate nature and they hope their products help to nurture little conservationists.
Their ongoing collaboration with Brisbane-based artist and friend, Amanda Borchers, has led to their 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 their products extra special.
All of their manufacturers are FSC certified, which means that they operate in an environmentally, economically and socially responsible way. All efforts are made to utilize natural and organic materials when possible and they are proud to offer a range of plastic-free, earth-friendly products.
