Our Story

Hi I'm Kristy the owner and creator at Dragonfly Kids and mother of 4 wonderfully wild children. We are a small family owned business based in the Shoalhaven, on the NSW South Coast.

Dragonfly Kids started after the birth of my second daughter, I had an overwhelming desire to dress my two girls similar but not exactly the same. Due to the lack of clothing out there to fit this need I began making clothing for my girls and as my love for sewing grew I started selling at local markets.

In June 2014 I decided to add some educational toys to my range and with the successful release of our Find Me Bag many other educational products followed. With the success of these products my business has naturally progressed into adding weighted and sensory products to our range. I have combined my Early Childhood Education background with the knowledge I gained after my son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD and Oppositional Defiance Disorder to create Dragonfly Kids range of handmade toys and tools.

In 2015 I opened a retail shop in Kinghorne Traders and soon after banded with other business mums to create Wild Tribe. As the journey has continued, our range of Educational and Sensory products, baby gifts, baby and kids clothing, toys and other fun things has grown.

In May 2021 we took a big step and opened our own retail shop on the main street in Nowra. We have a beautiful baby and children's shop with a dedicated and growing sensory and educational room. We are a one stop kids shop, with the largest sensory range in the Shoalhaven.
