Welcome to Robins Nest For Children
"#Buyfromthebush" at one of the original Australian "bush" boutiques.
Established in 2004 in Moree in northwest NSW, Australia "the Nest", as it's affectionately known, has a reputation for sourcing unique and exquisite games, gifts and activities from around the world for little (and not so little) children. For almost 20 years the carefully curated collection was gathered in a one-stop bricks and mortar boutique on a leafy street in Moree.
Originally started by two sisters, the Nest was named for their mother, Robin. Our bird's nest logo, featuring 6 eggs, represents each of Robin's children - a fitting tribute. In 2008 the sisters decided to follow new pursuits and a new Bird moved into the Nest.
Trained in early childhood education and a former Pre-School Director, Robin’s Nest for Children's current owner Dibs Cush knows a thing or two about children. With a genuine passion for nurturing a child's creativity and education through toys and play, Dibs’ background has a huge influence on her unique, quality stock.
Each product in the store is lovingly hand-picked by Dibs based on factors such as 'playability', education, entertainment, and of course, value. She has a strong philosophy based around children using their imaginations rather than ‘screen time’ and is thrilled with the swing back to traditional toys of late. Age appropriate play is also one of Dibs’ specialties, and with her vast experience and education, she is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the benefits of certain toys for particular age groups and the associated cognitive, fine motor, and language skill advantages.
In 2023 Dibs made the decision to close the bricks and mortar side of the Nest but still provide a wonderful array of products online. Mother of three and now grandmother to four little princesses and two grandsons, life became a little too busy to keep all those 'eggs' in the air.
Robin's Nest for Children may have reduced its inventory, but it is still your go-to for amazing puzzles, educational games, beautiful books and unique products from trusted Australian and international suppliers. Come fall down the rabbit-hole into the Nest - it's a wonderful world.
