Hi Everyone, 

I'm Carla - a wife, mother and Registered Nurse by trade, living in Melbourne, Australia.

I was inspired to begin this small business journey after becoming tired of the poor quality (mostly) plastic children's toys that had taken over our home at the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020.

I was finding these toys that we had accumulated since the birth of our now 3-year-old son in 2017, were not encouraging creativity or curiosity and for the most part, not holding his attention for longer than ten minutes. 

With this I then began reading, researching and learning about open-ended toys, toys that promote learning through play and toys that foster creativity.

And from this, Ausby Loves to Play was born.
