About us

Modern Monty is a family business that originated from humble beginnings, handcrafting wooden teethers, toys, and baby gyms in a garage in Peregian Beach, Queensland, Australia. Still on the Sunshine Coast, over time, we have evolved into creators of boutique, educational toys, flash cards, puzzles, and games.

Our commitment to creating products that foster a deep connection with the natural world stems from our belief in the importance of children learning about and appreciating nature from a young age. We strive to nurture little conservationists while supporting the development of problem-solving, strategy, early literacy and numeracy, social and communication skills, and more.

Collaborating closely with Australian artist and friend, Amanda Borchers, has been instrumental in shaping our current range. Amanda's stunning watercolour art captures the spirit of the wild, adding a special touch to each product.

At Modern Monty, we prioritise sustainability. Our manufacturers are FSC certified, operating in an environmentally, economically, and socially responsible manner. We endeavour to use natural and organic materials whenever possible, and we take pride in offering a range of single-use plastic-free, earth-friendly products, with many items crafted from recycled cardboard.

We believe that the best way to learn is through play, having fun. That's why Modern Monty's motto encapsulates this brand essence with "Play | Laugh | Learn."

Please explore our range at your leisure. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out; we're always here to help.

 

Reviews from some of our Lovely Customers

🌲”We absolutely love our Modern Monty Memory, Snap, and Go Fish sets. We use them every week, and our 3.5-year-old son loves to play these games with us non-stop! We take them camping and to cafes/restaurants to play while we wait for our meals. Highly recommend!"

🌲”We absolutely love this memory game. We use it as a matching activity for my 2-year-old and will slowly introduce the game of memory as he grows. The pictures are stunning and are a great addition to resources for play scapes about Australian animals. Will definitely shop this brand again."

🌲”We are falling in love with all Modern Monty’s products. Never once have we seen such incredible children's products like this: sturdy quality, beautiful illustrations, very educative and informative cards, and also we can use the products in so many different ways. Snap and Go Fish has definitely become one of our family’s favourite bonding times."
