Today’s Q&A is with the super team from Misterfly, Alex Skurrie & Kara Toovey. Misterfly is an Australian super stylish brand offering gorgeous, practical products for babies and children. It is a firm favourite with my Clients and their customers.
Tell us a little about Misterfly:
MISTER FLY is a stylish yet practical range of newborn accessories, that look so good in the home, you simply can't live without them. The range is full of playmats, muslins, blankets, backpacks, bibs and rattles. Each range combines a simple neutral palette with modern and playful prints. Our products are designed to be functional, affordable and practical for everyday use. Mister Fly is now stocked in over 200 stores in 18 different countries.
How did you get started?
Mister Fly was created by Alex Skurrie and Kara Toovey in 2015. Both with fashion backgrounds, we decided to design a range of playmats that would be not only fit seamlessly into their stylish homes, but would also be machine washable, of lasting quality and also reasonably priced to create the ultimate newborn gift.
Our team has also expanded to include CFO Marcus Toovey, as well as a designer and warehouse manager, so that Mister Fly can continue to bring you the unique products that are adored by the entire family.
