We are currently taking a well-deserved break from 7-12 July. Orders can still be placed during this time and will start shipping again from 12th July.



Welcome and thanks for stopping by our little corner of the internet! We’re a small, family business, based in Adelaide, South Australia.  Established in 2017.  We design and make all of our own wooden and bioplastic products and also stock complimentary products made by other small businesses.


But what the heck is a Beadie Bug?

It’s our daughter’s cute mispronunciation of ladybug when she was a young toddler and the name stuck. And now we have the domains and the trademarks and the designs, so Beadie Bug Play it is. Forever.

Our products are “Made for PLAY, not display”. All of our products have multiple uses and we are not fans of Instagram craptivities.  We're very passionate about providing natural materials for kids and will ALWAYS look for/make plastic-free options where available.


We don’t subscribe to any one educational philosophy but have been influenced by the Waldorf, Montessori and Reggio philosophies. Strictly subscribing is confining and a creativity killer.


We have the loveliest customers and, aside from our kids, they are the reason we keep doing this.


Welcome again! Have a browse and grab some goodies!


Much love,

Carley xo
