“Toys that foster the imagination” and can last a lifetime”
Nature Play Australia is a family run business and was founded in 2002, after Irene observed the success of Nature Play in N.Z, where it all began. Irene has a passion for sharing her knowledge with the community about the importance of natural toys in child’s play, while offering beautiful toys and products to many wonderful people who love them just as much as she does.
Although we stock products from ‘Fair Trade Co-ops’ and other sources internationally, wherever possible the products sold by Nature Play are primarily handmade and locally sourced. It is very important to us to support local craft artisans and offer predominantly Australian made products.
The business is based in Brisbane, Australia and not only sends products nationally but worldwide too.
We have witnessed, first hand, the positive effects on the creative well being of our own children with the beautiful Steiner inspired Nature Play toys. This practical experience, as well as a philosophical grounding from observing the educational benefits of using toys to foster imagination. provide us with a deep well of knowledge in understanding the needs of the end users of their products.
The Nature Play online toy store is designed to help our customers to select appropriate toys, art, craft and games for individual children, from babies to teenagers, there is even a small range for Mum’s, Dad’s and Grandparents too.
