|Welcome to Dragonfly Toys.
At Dragonfly we believe that childhood is an important time – a time that should be treasured, nurtured and cherished. The world of the child is a magical place, and as parents we can help to keep this magic alive by providing our children with opportunities for open ended, creative, imaginative play.
Dragonfly Toys is the love and effort of Linda Lodue and Tracie O'Meara.We have six children between us and many years of choosing what we would like our own children to play with. We endevour to bring this exerience and interest in beautiful children's toys and art supplies to you via Dragonfly Toys.
Linda began Dragonfly Toys over 4 years ago. It grew from her continuous search for toys and gifts that she feels belong in the world of the child.
She gradually discovered that there were many suitable toys available, however most of them were not easily accessed in Australia. Linda wasn’t satisfied with the options offered by local department stores and toyshops, and when she discovered that many other parents shared her dissatisfaction, the idea of Dragonfly began to take flight.
Tracie recently joined Linda in Dragonfly Toys. Through our shared interest in Steiner Education we both realise the need for children to be given toys that possess qualities of beauty and honesty.
Today, our children have access to a massive array of products, many of which can completely overwhelm the senses and hinder the child’s ability to use their own creativity and imagination. Through Dragonfly, I aim to give you access to products that are beautiful and enchanting, strong and safe, environmentally friendly and fairly traded.
We aspire to provide customers with a wide range of unique products along with friendly, personal and efficient service. We will continue our search for new and exciting things to add to the range – always striving to offer you a genuine alternative to mainstream shops by presenting a large selection of toys, games, books, music, art & craft materials, clothing and products that you and your children will treasure.
Don’t hesitate to provide us with your feedback – we value your suggestions, ideas and thoughts. If you are looking for a specific product and can’t see it on the site, let us know and we will try our best to get it for you.
Thank you for visiting Dragonfly Toys.
