Modern Monty was founded by Meg & Kelvin in Australia. Started out hand-making toys, Modern Monty has now evolved to create a range of luxe, boutique, educational toys, puzzles and games.
Meg has a degree in Applied Science and Psychology and a Masters of Counselling, along with 12 years’ experience working in psychology, mental health and clinical governance. Her knowledge of children's development and learning theories has helped to ensure their products are engaging and educational. Kelvin has a background in professional landscape photography, and has an artist's eye for detail, ensuring the final product and packaging is beautiful and eye-catching.
Classic toys and educational products have been reimagined to encourage a deep connection with the natural world, from a young age. They believe it's important for children to learn about and appreciate nature. They intend their products to help nurture little conservationists.
Their ongoing collaboration with Brisbane based artist and friend, Amanda Borchers, has led to their current range, with her stunning, watercolour art featured frequently. Amanda's artwork truly captures the spirit of the wild and the time and skill that goes into each artwork makes their products extra special.
The eye-catching aesthetic of Modern Monty toys and games is intended to provide joy with a minimalistic, modern appearance. Their products are designed to fit seamlessly into any modern or earthy home, and the beautiful packaging ensures they make perfect gifts too.
Modern Monty cooperates with FSC certified manufacturers, which means that they operate in an environmentally, economically and socially responsible way. All efforts are made to utilise natural and organic materials. Their collections are plastic-free and earth-friendly.
