About Us

We're Ali & Kate; Best mates, busy mums and now business partners!

Based in the Blue Mountains, we met when we were 7 and have been friends ever since (yep, that's over 25 years of friendship!) Between us we have 5 kids; Ali's a certified #girlmum with two school aged daughters, and Kate's a hardcore #boymum with three boys aged five and under.

The Play Co was born just before Christmas 2020, when we fell in love with the concept of creating our own play dough boxes to give as gifts. We were also experimenting with resin at the time, so along came our resin alphabet sets! We think the two elements complement each other so well, and LOVE seeing our kids learning about letters and words through such a sensory tactile experience. We know yours will too!

We love nothing more than watching our kids fully immersed in their own world of play. Other than the few minutes of silence and relaxation the aforementioned play provides us!! Our hope is that through our products we can share this joy with parents all over the country.

Thank you for being here and supporting our mum-run business. We'd be honoured if you shared the love on social @theplayco_ and #theplayco

We love you!
