About Nat’s Nest

Not long after I returned to work from maternity leave, I unexpectedly found myself unemployed.

While this initially came as an unwanted shock, I decided to see it as the universe telling me there were bigger and better things in store for me. To be honest, it had been a struggle. I had a four and one year old, and juggling the work/life balance was tricky. 

Fast forward a few years and now my kids are older. My eldest has shown a passion for arts and crafts, which grew during Melbourne’s long covid lock down. My little one was diagnosed with speech delay.

In an attempt to figure out what I should do, I looked to my skills and interests.

I liked being a mum, and finding activities for the kids that didn’t involve a screen while supporting their interests and needs.

I was also really good at, erm, online shopping.


I seemed to have a knack for finding interesting, unique items that I knew the kids would love (and would be great for their brains), but they never seemed to be available in Australia. So I took matters into my own hands.

Nat’s Nest is a family business that organically grows as my family does. My children inspire the direction it takes and help me to lead it. Our current businesses focusses on two main areas;

– Kids arts and crafts.

– Supporting parents of kids with speech and language delay.

We are moving into therapy and sensory products, after becoming a neuro-diverse family I want to share products that help my ASD + ADHD kids with other families.

Every item sold at Nat’s Nest has been used and carefully chosen by our family.

We’re here to offer you practical, fun items that will get used time and time again, and keep them away from those screens.

(Best of all, items to give you some peace and quiet!)
