The Queen Bee’s
We are sister in laws who both had our very first babies within 7 months of each other, so are fortunate to have the help and support of each other during and after pregnancy. It made us realise just how much mom’s need to share, learn and lean on other mom’s who are too experiencing the same joys of motherhood.
We found that while being “stay at home moms” we were always looking for things keep us and our babies entertained, we craved adult interaction and loved being around other moms and babies of similar ages. With the perfect location and an already established name in the Hillcrest area, we decided to start our own Funnell enterprise, namely Fun Kids.
