Our Story

Hello! We are Tara and Aidan, the faces behind Rata and Roo. Aidan is in charge of all the making, and Tara is always on the lookout for beautiful, educational and fun products to share with you. 
We live in Melbourne, Australia, with our 5 kids. Our two daughters are in the early years of secondary schooling and our eldest son is in his final year of primary school. Our two little boys are at home full time with Tara. We love spending time together as a family, going on bush walks or to the beach. 
Rata and Roo started because we were finding it difficult to find natural loose parts or Australian made counting boards for our little boys. We love natural educational toys and playthings so have slowly built our range to include not only items made by us but other beautiful handmade items from Australia and around the world. All the items we share with you are things we love and use with our own little ones. 
Our aim is to offer a range of educational, imaginative and open ended playthings for you to enjoy learning and playing with for years to come.
Thank you so much for supporting our little family business!
Tara and Aidan xx
