Welcome to Pips and Moo

Pips and Moo is a small family owned traditional joinery, specialising in children’s toys, furniture and decor made from solid wood. We are based out in the beautiful countryside in the peaceful village of Bedford, in the Eastern Cape. Our two beautiful girls, Pippa and Maddie AKA Pips and Moo were our inspiration to start this business. We started making children’s items in the hopes of providing our girls with a happy healthy childhood filled with quality time with Mom and Dad, and quality toys and furniture handmade with love. It’s great to be able to have our kids involved in our work. They love ‘helping out’ and get so excited when we are working on new things. Both of them are always more than willing put any item to the test!

Ours is a real family business. We do everything ourselves: from design, manufacturing, painting, packaging and sometimes even delivering. One of the aims of Pips and Moo, is to create quality, children’s wooden items that will last. Things that can be passed on and used for years to come. We hope to create items that encourage outdoor, physical, social and imaginative play. Items that can help our children grow and develop while creating many happy memories.

Another thing that is very important to us is the concept of supporting other local small businesses. We make use of  a number of local businesses, ranging from things like the environmentally friendly paint we use to the fabric ink we use to stamp our homemade bags. Feel free to read more about our story here.
