Kath and her family

Hello! I'm Kath and I own and run Milk Tooth in beautiful Lake Macquarie, NSW, Australia (we're situated not far north of Sydney), with the help of my kind little girl, Sylvia, my sweet little boy, Louis, and their dad/my supportive partner, Drew, aka Mr Milk Tooth.

This is an image of me and Sylvie when she was not quite one; this was around about the time that Milk Tooth was born:

We added our second little moppet, Louis, to the Milk Tooth family in 2016. Here's me and the kids a few years ago, cuddled up and happy together, the way we love to be:

And here we are in 2021 at the beach, one of our favourite places:

My focus at Milk Tooth

Milk Tooth stocks only the most beautiful toys and decor for your playroom, nursery, or child's room. I pick each and every item carefully. If I don't love it, I won't stock it. The range in store is now huge: think wooden stacking rainbows and blocks, rattan doll's prams, baby dolls for all ages, lots of impeccably crafted wooden animal and people figurines, huge and earthy rainbow wall rugs, wooden cars and trucks, baby graspers and rattles, balance boards, bed and cot linen, cushions, loose parts play, throws, and knitted soft toys for the most engaging playrooms, loveliest nurseries, and coolest kids' rooms.

Milk Tooth only offers you the very best quality items, carefully sourced by me, Kath, from far-flung places, including Scandinavia, Europe, and the US, as well as from amazing designer brands right here at home in Australia. My most treasured brands include Grimm's, Connetix Tiles, Olli Ella, Grapat, Mader, Ostheimer, Spinkie Baby, Bumbu Toys, Mikheev, and Kip and Co. Have a browse and start to create the perfect collection of open-ended toys, design a beautiful bedroom for your little one, or find the perfect gift for a new baby, a child's birthday, or Christmas.

Milk Tooth's journey so far

While I've dabbled previously, this is my first real venture in online retailing and I love it. I really enjoy selecting beautiful, quality items that will bring joy to both your little ones and your own toy-loving heart.

I started Milk Tooth in mid-2014 and have since been featured in articles and editorials in Home Beautiful magazine, Minty Magazine, and The Herald Sun. I've also worked with some amazing designers, stylists, and accounts, including Three Birds Renovations, Miss Kyree Loves, Jimmy Rees, Honeypunch, You Give Me Grace, Life With Winter, Style Create Inspire, Little Dwellings, My Home Style 89, Fee Loves, and Kerry Ann Stylist. Our products have been purchased for use in advertisements, including for Tic Tac.

Our customer service

I pride myself on my customer service. I try my very best to get your order to the post office or with our courier within one to two business days. I also answer your emails on the same or next business day. I'm a little more terrible at answering the phone because...kids...but please leave a message and I will always call you back or text if I'm unable to talk at the time. I want to make the entire online shopping experience as pleasant and personal as possible for my wonderful customers.

I strive to keep our prices competitive. As a part of this, Milk Tooth offers a flat shipping rate of $9.90 for orders weighing up to 500g and $11.90 for all other orders within Australia, and we ship for free within Australia for orders $220.00 and over.

Above all else, I hope to build a loyal base of customers who enjoy shopping with Milk Tooth. Please let me know if there's ever anything I can do to help you. I'm always happy to answer questions and can take real-life photos of a product for you - please just ask!

Kath xx
