Our Story

“Good ‘old-fashioned’ imaginative play

Welcome to the Magical World of Opening Fairy Doors.

Premium handcrafted fairy doors for children to treasure

Our brand is not about offering a toy that is here today and discarded tomorrow,
but about providing a quality product that will be treasured for years to come,
and become part of the fabric of childhood memories. 

That our products inspire many a magical adventure, where a child is the
hero or the princess in their own stories

Opening Fairy Doors, where magical moments are enjoyed and ‘warm fuzzy’ memories are made.

Opening Fairy Doors help fairies find their way into homes, by handcrafting beautiful timber fairy doors that OPEN. But more than that we are about providing children with beautiful, safe, unique and magical products that encourage hands-on play and inspire their imaginations. In an age when children can spend hours in front of electronic devices, computers & TVs, we instead offer “good old-fashioned quality productsthat inspire hands-on, interactive play and encourage story-telling and creative make-believe.

Opening Fairy Doors team

We have the best business partnership in the world – a mum and daughter team. (And even after 19 years in business together, mum is still my best friend!)

Mum & I started our first family business in 1998 building dollshouses and miniature furniture on our kitchen table. But in 2010, we had an idea to try and reach more children by crafting a range of fairy products – unique and beautiful products that no one else had!

We began to design and develop a tiny door, a little door that opened for fairies to visit a home through, and in 2011 “Opening Fairy Doors” was born.

We are very proud that we are the original creators of the Opening Fairy Door, which are now shipped all across Australia and New Zealand.  And our “Play Set” design, which we licensed to “Cra-z-art”, is also available throughout Europe.

We are also very proud that we are completely Australian owned and operated, having built our little family company from our kitchen table to where it is now!

Mum & I are the faces behind our brand! The ones who personally make, paint and package each of our timber Opening Fairy Doors; and we personally process every order and answer every email and phone call

We love what we do because we have an amazing product that is making children happy.

We love what we do because we have amazing customers who come back again and again because they appreciate beautiful products with good old-fashioned service.
