The House of Sprouts Our Story Background

Our Story

We are young parents who started a sustainable living journey for our family.  While living in Melbourne, we discovered and bought wooden toys for our children.  However, they are mostly close-ended toys that we will no longer need once our children achieves a particular skill or no longer challenged by its purpose.  While wooden toys are sustainable, we've asked ourselves what can we do more to make our impact minimal? 


We envision a playroom that is both minimal and sustainable, where eco parents meet their child's learning goals as well as their conscious way of living.

Our Communities

Our founder serves as a Play Ambassador to Toy Association's Genius of Play and a member of Women in Toys.  With the help of Seven Clean Seas, we intend to remove 2,500 plastic toys from the ocean this year.  We are also proud members of the global communities Eco Alliance.
