Our Story

It all started with the birth of a boy named Jack.  His grandma turned up at our sewing school for lessons after not being able to find the early learning fun toys that she was looking for and decided to make them herself.

Her first project was a Christmas tree for the then 1 year old to decorate. After buying numerous felt trees whose decorations wouldn’t stick or didn’t last, she thought there must be a better way. 

Over many cups of coffee brainstorming about what and how we three ladies could make quality, stimulating toys for very young children, a truly great friendship and “ Andre and Oskar’s Creative Early Learning” was born.  And who may you ask are Andre and Oskar?  They are the fur babies that sat on our laps every week while we drank our coffee!


Our Aim

To make quality, long lasting, stimulating magnetic designs that can be handed down from one generation to the next.  Each of our designs are made so the littlest and oldest of hands can use them without becoming frustrated and as the little ones grow and progress, they can become story boards and educational tools.


How we do it

We use a variety of brightly coloured fabric from fur, to leather, with sparkles and everything in between to stimulate little imagination and senses.  They are handmade and machine embroidered in Australia.   The colourful backgrounds have a double sided magnetic sheet enclosed within, and they can be placed on any metal fridge door, magnetic whiteboard or wall painted with magnetic paint. 

After a lot of research and development we have changed our elements - 

Small magnets have all been removed and our fabric elements have magnetic sheet attached to the back or we have totally changed the elements onto MDF Sheets - Printable (sublimation technique with eco-solvent ink with a complete magnet sheet backing -  designed for 100% Safety.

ALL Elements are are a minimum of 4cm x 7.5cm x 3mm thickness.


The Magnetic Storyboard Sets allow you to create your own unique display and adjust it at any time. You simply create a scene by placing the magnet elements onto the magnetic landscape (you will need a whiteboard or magnetic surface to attach the landsape too);  then the elements can be arranged and rearranged at leisure.

  • Create and make up stories – hours of fun and creativity for little ones active minds.
  • Great for everyone to be involved, or play anytime at their leisure..
  • It can be used as an educational tool to learn spelling and names of animals 
  • It will help improve fine motor skills and boost imagination.
  • The elements are made from MDF Board approx 4cmx7.5cm or larger with a magnet attached to the entire surface on the back.  Printed with eco-friendly ink, permenant and scratch resistant.    
  • These can be used over and over (we recommend you wipe the elements with a damp cloth, do not soak or place in water as the MDF will swell.
  • You can use this set with our other magnetic storyboards and make up many different stories.
  • It is suitable for ages 1+ and up.
