Our Story

Want to get to know us better? Here’s our story.

Back in the 80s, we were two little girls with dirty knees growing up in nearby villages in rural West Wales. We loved catching frogs, jumping waves, climbing trees, pressing flowers and muddy walks. Our most enduring childhood memories are of having hours of fun outside.

We became friends in our teens, stayed close right through our student days, early motherhood, and even ended up working in the same office.

Between us, we now have five brave and curious little ones, (becoming not-so-little waaay too quickly). And as parents, it’s always been important to us that they have the same opportunities to create those lifelong outdoor memories. We intuitively knew that outdoor play isn’t just fun; it has health benefits; it inspires the imagination; it builds friendships; it establishes a connection with nature. And our children are never happier than when they’re running free, breathing fresh air and getting dirty together.

We always knew we wanted to start a business together, and the outdoor adventures we shared as children became the inspiration for Wonderlings. Our mission was to motivate children to turn off the TV, ignore the lure of the ipad and simply get outside to play and have fun together. Whatever the weather. Mud and all. In fact, the more mud, the better.

We set out to find great quality toys, games and outdoor activities. No disposable plastic tat. We wanted to create a collection of beautifully designed, brilliantly made products. Products that would last way beyond one summer.

So that’s what we did. And it certainly wasn’t easy. We’re sticklers for detail, and quality products were hard to find, but that just made us even more determined. And that’s why we’re still looking now. So that we can share the very best products to keep inspiring little ones everywhere to enjoy more wild times outside.

So that's us! Now we want to get to know you too. Don't forget to join us on social media for more fun.

With love,

Anna & Becky
