About Us

Welcome to Playtime for kids

It's a familiar story.  When my twin sons were born, there were no woollen hand knits for babies, only mass produced acrylic garments, so I made my own.

After years on knitting for my own children, family, friends and neighbours children, I was encouraged to put together my favourite patterns and wools and start my own little online shop.

Bright, Bold and Colourful.  Nothing stimulates babies awareness like colour.

If you are looking for unique adventurous fun to wear outfits for your little ones, then you have come to the right site.  The garments on my site have lovingly been designed for babies and toddlers in soft wools gentle on young skins, many of which are machine washable.

Should you see something you like but would prefer a different colour, simply contact me and I will be happy to assist.

Special thanks to Nana Olive and the Australian Country Spinners for use of some of their patterns and to my cousin Polly for her beautifully crocheted embelishments.

All wools used are 100% Australian with the added bonus of being machine washable.
