Little House is a brand focused on providing eco-friendly options for sensory play, crafting, art supplies, party favours, candles, and more. It was founded by Yoanna, a New Zealand-born-and-raised mother of three, educator (she has a Bachelor in Teaching - Early Childhood Education), and lover of crafting and getting outdoors.
With sustainability at the forefront of her collection, Yoanna is committed to providing eco-friendly crafting options that are not only safe and natural for kids, but also minimise the use of plastic packaging. Any surplus resources are recycled or donated to kindergartens and schools.
Products such as the wild paint and eco-slime have been developed through her own experiences as a mum and educator. After watching her 18-month-old daughter putting paints in her mouth, she developed a natural paint, including fruits and vegetables for colouring. Eco-slime was similar - her son enjoyed slime, but Yonna didn't like the plastic packaging it came in, nor the added chemicals, micro-plastics, and glitter. After conducting some research, eco-slime, a natural, biodegradable alternative, was born.
