Imagine It and Play - Love Australian Handmade
Imagine It and Play is an imaginary play shop for children, featuring handmade items that focus on fun and pretend play.
Joanne the owner, has four children of her own and needed to work from home as a single parent and so developed her much loved little handmade business.
Imaginary and pretend play is so important for children. To inspire children with her play items and to be able to make them by hand is wonderful. And there is nothing nicer than making a handmade toy or gift that a child can treasure.
'Attention span and focus cannot be taught but they CAN be thoughtfully inspired'.
The face behind Imagine it and Play - Joanne
Imagine It And Play began after a need to work from home to be with my four children as a single parent. Combined with my love of all things sewing and craft, I launched Imagine It And Play.
To inspire children with my play items that involve pretend and imaginative play has grown in to a much loved little handmade business, that my daughter helps me with by modelling and my 3 sons offer constructive criticism on!
Working from home is a necessity as a solo parent and I am thankful I have been able to create a successful little business that allows me to work around the kids and in my second job of a night time.
Although I am a very busy mum, my passion of all things handmade will continue to evolve through my business which is run from my home studio on the Sunshine Coast in QLD. There is nothing nicer or rewarding than making a handmade gift or toy that a child can treasure.
As owner, designer and creator of Imagine It And Play I make all items from start to finish and I am very excited for the future and my little handmade business.
