5 Little Bears is owned by Leanne & Wendy. Leanne is mum to 5 boys (hence the name 5 Little Bears!). She’s the graphic designer, millworker, ideas woman, printer & engraver whizz! In her spare time (ha!) she’s making bees wax polish on her stove top and gluing up a storm on her dining table!
Wendy is mum to 2 boys. When she’s not a travelling saleswoman, out and about showing our fabulous products to preschools and child care centres, she’s doing the books, packing orders and collaborating with Leanne on new and exciting products!
Why we love them...
All 5 Little Bears educational and sensory resources are all hand made locally in NSW, using timber that is sourced mainly from sustainable Australian and New Zealand plantations. They are licensed to partner the Australian Made & Australian Made And Owned logos with the registered products.
Their aim is to reduce our environmental footprint, by minimising our timber waste. All offcuts are bagged as loose parts and the sawdust collected from machining the timber is bagged and given away to be used for compost or mulch. The Perspex used is also offcuts that are sourced from a local company.
