About Us

Thank you for taking the time to come and read a little bit about us.

The best way to describe me is as a mummy of two beautiful little munchkins and a fur baby, who is a primary school teacher and absolutely loves to have fun in life! I'm all about making life memorable and exciting! Hey, you only get one life so lets live it!

Being both a mummy and a teacher, I really wanted to share the knowledge and skills I’ve acquired and built over 15 years. I love to watch children learn through play; the theory is simple, make learning fun, and children will want to learn! 

Being a parent myself, I understand and see the challenges parents face when trying to provide the best life they can for their children. I understand that parents are time poor, tired and have a to-do list that is a mile long! So that’s why I decided to begin Play like Coco, in a hope that I may be able to help parents out. I really want to help parents provide fun and engaging play experiences for their little ones that are affordable and practical. 

I've put all of my skills, learnings and experiences as a teacher and mummy into creating these Play like Coco Kits that I hold very close to my heart. I truly feel they provide children with amazing opportunities to play, learn and have fun at home. 

Value for money was important to me when creating my kits as I understand the costs that families face in todays world. Most activities in the Play like Coco Kits are reusable and are suited to children of a variety of ages. Your children can play with the items autonomously, with each other or with their parents - you!

Play is so good for the soul (adults included). It gives us a chance to escape the real world, become creative and let our hair down. I absolutely love how play can be completely unstructured and imaginative. But it can also be guided and supported. There are so many benefits to offering children various play opportunities from cognitive and social development, to fine motor and gross motor development. As I introduce products to the business it is important to me to cover all of these bases. I strongly feel our Play like Coco Kits along with Our Favourite Products do just that.

I am always searching high and low for products that align with our philosophy here at Play like Coco which is quality, versatility, affordability and FUN! When I find them they become Our Favourite Products and are all things we absolutely love, try and test ourselves!

One of the questions we get asked the most about our business is 'where did our name come from? ' 'Who is Coco?'. The answer to that question is... Coco is my first baby, my fur baby!  She was the inspiration for our name Play like Coco, which has been a dream of mine for some time. Well before my beautiful kiddies, I knew I wanted to incorporate her name into my business somehow.  She is the happiest, friendliest and most PLAYFUL fur baby ever! She represents exactly what play should be. Play should be fun, exciting, bring happiness and make you laugh! Coco does exactly all of this. 

So in a nutshell that's a little bit about us and what we're all about. I really hope we bring fun, excitement and learning through play into your home and I'm so excited to share this journey with you!

Don't forget to make time to play everyday. It's so good for everyone!
