How It All Began
3 Little Monkeys was established in 2003 and has been owned and operated by the Coorey Family since September 2006. We started out as customers of the store and loved the ambience and atmosphere of the quaint little shop. We jumped at the opportunity to own and run the boutique as a family business. We believe in quality, ‘real’ customer service where we aim to understand the customer's needs and satisfy those needs with the products we sell. This is to ensure that we slowly build and retain a customer base in the extremely competitive children’s clothing market.
We aim to differentiate our business on:
- Customer service – that is, ‘we walk the talk’, we are here to help.
- Quality products, which offer the customer something different and special, at affordable prices.
We have grown since 2006 and 'WOW' look at us now! In November 2010, we opened an exciting new retail outlet still on Toowoomba's Eat Street at 200 Margaret Street just across the road from our old shop where you found the same great customer service.
Our commitment to our business and our customers saw us nominated in the 2010 Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards where we were finalists.
In the 2012 Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards, we were nominated and won the division of Fashion in the category of Retail and Wholesale. We thank all our loyal customers who supported our shop to help us achieve this award!
In 2014, 3 Little Monkeys continued the journey and relocated the business to a beautiful area of Toowoomba's CBD. The shop is now located in the Chronicle Arcade, Suite 8, at 191 Margaret Street, Toowoomba, not very far from the old location on Eat Street, only two minutes away. Come and see how we have grown! We are introducing quality new ranges to our boutique shop that our customers can feel comfortable in selecting the right product for the special baby or child in their life.
3 Little Monkeys are continuing to hand select and source ethically and naturally produced ranges of products from brands including:
Bobux Shoes; Jasnor Giftware including Bunnies by the Bay soft toys and stackable learning blocks; Banz Sunglasses and Ear Muffs; Kooringal Hats Dozer and Millymook; Aden and Anais muslin and bamboo range of sleeping bags, bibs, wraps and blankets; Korimco Toys & Giftware; Ergo Pouch swaddles, sleeping bags and sleepwear; Seedling Baby modern all-in-one cloth nappy, comodo wraps and paddle pants; Lyn's Label bamboo baby essentials and Bella Nappy Bag; Sophie the Giraffe Natural Rubber Teethers or Toys; Love Mae Bamboo Dinnerware; Egmont Toys and Giftware; Mesmerised Baby Books; Cheeky Chompers.
