I have learnt so much in the last 7 years from what mums want when shopping online, building websites, SEO, digital graphic design, social media and marketing and how to be a product photographer just to name a few. Being able to bring safe, handmade products to the market is so important, from our dummy clips, teethers and pram toys. This was such a big thing for me. I committed, got insured, purchased the standard, sent them off to get tested.
Absolute highlights are getting the emails with the testing reports saying passed, being one of the best feelings. It’s such a hard trot from design to safety certified. Zebra Babies turns 7 this year in September. With the pending birthday I wanted to share a bit about myself and the brand and why us.
Learning about our product materials and what makes a good and not so good product when manufacturing is so important. Silicone products are a great example. You would think silicone is all the same. It’s simple, durable and looks similar across multiple brands. Our silicone bibs and tableware took over 18 months from first sample to get off the ground because we were never 100% happy with the samples our factories were sending us. From flimsy silicone scoop bibs that didn’t hold their shape left alone catch food or bowls that didn’t have the structure we wanted.
One of the most interesting sampling we did was for our silicone stackers. We worked with 2 factories, same external mould, colours, you would think side by side they are the same product. The silicone come out completely different and one was able to be squeezes and almost folded with no structure, this was a safety issue. We wanted to make sure our brand gave our customers the best silicone toys and tableware out there. Our silicone is high quality, direct manufactured and branded, that’s how much confidence we have in it.
Passion for my brand and ethical stance.
Baltic Amber was something I personally used for myself and my middle child as well as youngest babe. I thought the product was interesting and if it did what i said, bonus. I was so surprised when I had such great results. I personally wear amber in my daily life for RSI. Our customers message and leave reviews absolutely swearing by it, warms my heart. The range is extensive and stocked in small businesses up and down the east coast from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Sunshine coast to South Australia.

Our next day turn around has our mums emailing regularly saying – “omg it’s here already” or – “I wasn’t expecting it so soon”. We love this! This is what online shopping is about. Beautifully packaged, wrapped and arrives quickly. YASS!

Little bit about me, Ash.
I’m a FIFO wife, mum with 3 awesome babes, Hubby has been FIFO since our oldest was 1(almost 12 years) . It’s life and we make it work. Zebra Babies has allowed me to be there for our kids, with a more flexible work schedule. Before Zebra Babies is spent 3 years as a hairdresser, I absolutely loved it.
I’m such a creative person at heart and love a great transformation. With a severe back injury ending in major spinal surgery I wasn’t going back. My back is thankfully great now. I really wanted to work, do my bit and have something to do that I felt the same about. Had an idea, I kinda slowly walked with it. I remember my first order, opening that first silicone bead order. Sorting the silicone beads and making my first batch of silicone necklace designs thinking I really hope someone will buy them. From there expanding the product range and it being what it is today. I’m so proud of where and what the brand stands for today.
