It was many years ago. 2011 in fact. Kate and Kate had been focussed on their families and part time work and were completely overwhelmed by the amount of toys spread through their homes. As friends, Kate and Kate met at beachside cafe with toddlers in tow. They each had an older child in primary school. AND both were pregnant. So when one Kate said to the other Kate, "I have an idea and I really need you to make me something like I had as a child," the other Kate wondered when she would possibly have the time to sew or craft but she was very eager to know more. So with chaos in their homes and a love for kids and creative play, Kate and Kate started their business journey and so Play Pouch was born.
