Morning Star Children was started in 2022, but that wasn’t the beginning of the story. For 22 years Morning Star Crafts owned and run by Elizabeth has stocked these beautiful and carefully chosen toys, books and art supplies to enrich the schools and families of the areas she has lived and worked. Now in 2022, I will be taking over these products and creating my own unique brand at Morning Star Children. I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to start a business which already has such strong roots in its products and ethos. I believe in the values of the original brand where products have been selected for their beauty, craftsmanship and natural qualities. And as I expand and make changes to my business I will take these ideas with me. Morning Star Children is a business focussed on children’s play, development and education and I am specialising in toys, books and art supplies. My own journey into the Waldorf Steiner lifestyle was with my own education, at the Castlemaine Steiner School and now through the early years of my own two boy’s lives I am developing a whole new appreciation and understanding of the Steiner philosophy. I am also in awe at the number of products, resources and materials available to parents and children these days. At Morning Star Children, you won’t find everything that is available for childrens play. What you will find is our very carefully selected and curated products that we believe are the best available that meet our requirements. Every brand, every source is researched. Every item sparks joy in me when I get to unpack it, and again when I pack it up for an order. I hope that when you unpack your order it sparks joy for you and it sparks joy for your children every time they take it out to use. That is my goal at Morning Star Children, and I can’t wait to share this journey with you.
