5 little bears pty ltd
The idea for 5 Little Bears came about when I was looking for something to teach my 3 eldest boys to tie their shoe laces. I had the resources to make a wooden template in the shape of a shoe to help them and from there, with the assistance of teachers, early learning educators and Occupational Therapists we now offer a range of timber educational and sensory resources for all requirements, with an emphasis on Australian themes.
Our educational and sensory resources are all locally made in NSW, using timber that is sourced mainly from sustainable Australian and New Zealand plantations, and we are also licensed to partner the Australian Made & Australian Made And Owned logos with the registered products.
Our aim is to reduce our environmental footprint, by minimising our timber waste. All offcuts are bagged as loose parts and the saw dust collected from cutting the timber down is bagged and given away to be used for compost or mulch. The Perspex we use is also offcuts that we source from a local company.
As a small Australian business, our focus is on producing high quality Australian and Indigenous themed products. These include our native flora and fauna, We use Foundation font and can customise for all Australian states.
