We are Kellie, Jonathan, Jethro and Shepard Stones. This is our little family business.
Together we have a passion for foraging and finding things that ooze character and style and that we can repurpose into something else. We started out repurposing industrial finds into furniture for ourselves, friends and through Ebay and got a lot of encouragement.Then we had Jethro. Through our desire to create an inspiring and individual space for him that reminded us of our own childhood we made him a recycled apple crate cubby house, a sand pit and his own veggie garden. We added trellis and hanging plants and bird houses and are still adding stuff to it. We love looking at it and he loves it.
A few years ago one thing lead to another and we started making cubby houses for friends. Their encouragement and our excitement at a repurposing lifestyle lead us to do more.
So we started this little business, the business of creating quirky things from recycled stuff for cool and funky little people with BIG imaginations. We are still passionately creating and building outdoor play spaces for Melbourne families.
Recycled for us is the only way to go. It feels right to start our kids off with the ethos of recycled and encourage their creativity and imaginations. We are very proud that all our timbers are 100% recycled and untreated. They are completely safe for our children and yours too.
When the cogs aren’t turning on Castle and Cubby, we also do other jobs. I am a photographer of product and events. I am also mum to the 2 dragons during the day. Jon is a qualified chef who had the foresight, thankfully, to get out of the food industry and work in carpentry. So we get the best of both worlds, awesome food every night and Dad home early!
We aim to keep adding new, interesting and cool products for your little outdoor adventurer. So come back and check us again.
We are a little family in a big world following our dreams.
