Little Change Creators cares for people and our planet by using materials and manufacturing processes which are sustainable and safe. We aim to impact the toy industry by offering long-lasting alternatives that create less waste and leave as little footprint as possible. Read all about our sustainable choices here.
We understand parents need durability so we've chosen materials which are not only robust but can be reused, recycled or upcycled. While there are other suitable materials on the market, the impact of their manufacturing processes has influenced our decisions. As our designs and processes continue to evolve we will continue to look for ways to improve.
The silicone we use in our RE-FUN-able™ Colouring Sets is derived from natural elements such as silica (sand), oxygen, carbon and hydrogen. However, not all silicone is created equal. We use only premium, food-grade silicone that's non-toxic and FDA-approved. Our silicone is free of harmful chemicals such as BPA, BPS, PVC, phthalates and lead. It's also highly-durable, withstanding both heating and freezing without emitting any nasty chemicals (unlike many plastics and synthetic rubbers). Additionally, the non-porous surface prevents bacteria from forming, making it a really hygienic material for kids!
All our products are designed and assembled in Australia. While some components are currently manufactured offshore (we source premium German ink and Japanese nibs for our marker pens), we support many local businesses throughout our supply chain and business operations.
When starting Little Change Creators it simply wasn’t possible to manufacture every item in Australia. However, we welcome interest from local manufacturers as our business expands and evolves. Where there is the opportunity to have a product made in Australia every effort should be made to support it. However, Australian businesses that don't have this opportunity also need support in order to continue providing jobs and innovation incentives for all Australians.
As parents ourselves, we take safety seriously which is why we haven’t skimped on quality. This means our products may be priced slightly higher than our competitors but, for your peace of mind, we feel it’s worth it.
All Little Change Creators products are free of BPA, BPS, PVC, phthalates and lead. Our manufacturers’ certifications meet or exceed safety requirements in Australia, USA, Canada and Europe.
Due to the components of some products, we recommend close parental supervision and use by children aged 4+ years.
Little Change Creators' silicone colouring mats are easy to clean. Usually, a damp Magic Clean Clothis all you need. However, if your silicone mat shows any stubborn stains from pre-loved art, watch thisfor some simple cleaning hacks.
All our Re-FUN-able colouring mats are dishwasher-safe (top drawer) to ensure germ-free fun.
Definitely! If you’re passionate about kid’s creativity, analogue or sustainable play and spreading kindness then we’d love to hear from you. Growing a business is hard work so any support means the world to us. Please introduce yourself and your child/ren via email: email@example.com.
We aim to positively impact the lives of all children, whether they be disadvantaged, disabled or simply in need of a ‘pick-me-up’. If you know of an organisation we could partner with, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Little Change Creators loves to collaborate with other brands and is happy to consider both private and commercial projects. Please contact us if you’re interested in custom projects, exclusive prints and private labelling: email@example.com.
We ask that you respect our concept and please do not copy our designs or products. You can support our small business by shopping with us or working with us, not against us. Please refer to our Terms of Service.
At present we design all artwork in-house but we would love to hear from local artists who offer whimsical or captivating designs suitable for children aged 4-12 years.
It would be naïve to think that manufacturing any products can have zero impact on our environment. Unfortunately it’s the cost of our modern lives and even so-called ‘eco-products’ – whether it be apparel, homewares or utilities - still create an environmental impact during production. The important thing to consider is how to minimise this impact – whether it be through the production process, educating customers to reuse instead of replace or a combination of the two.
We consciously choose materials which are not only robust but can be reused, recycled or upcycled. While there are other suitable materials on the market, the impact of their manufacturing processes has influenced our decisions. As our designs and processes continue to evolve we will continue to look for ways to improve.
In the meantime, you’re welcome to return any used marker pens, colouring mats or cloth bags to us for recycling through Terracycle. Please post your unwanted items to:
Recycle - LCC PO BOX 642 Bulimba, QLD 4171
We also carefully choose how we do business. This means we choose sea freight over air freight and we choose recyclables over single-use. We aren't perfect but we're constantly looking for ways to improve.
While our products are designed for longevity, one of our goals is to close the consumer loop through a recycling and repurposing partnership. Silicone can be shredded and combined with other rubberised products to create playground mats, roadbases and sports surfaces. These are options we are currently investigating.
In the meantime however, we encourage you to give or donate any products you no longer need.

We acknowledge that all products may vary slightly due to the nature of manufacturing, and that the reproduction process of colours is as accurate as the production and photographic process will allow.
The very best efforts have been made to ensure our products are safe for your child. We do expect a common sense approach to using our items, with responsibility falling on the customer to determine whether an item is appropriate for use. The main concern for use under 4 years of age is the small marker pen lids. However we have purposefully chosen lids without clips (to avoid breaking) as well as breathable holes in them in case they are swallowed. HOWEVER, this does not necessarily make them safe to use for this young age, nor negate the need for appropriate supervision – no matter the age.
Any addition or alteration to our products will void the warranty. We accept no liability from any damage caused through these product amendments.
Any misuse or maintenance that differs from what we state on our website will void the warranty. We accept no liability from any damage caused through use of varied cleaning products or other maintenance on our products.
