Welcome to our very first blog on our newly revamped website.
We hope you like the new fresh look which gives a cleaner and more user-friendly experience for you.
We’re still very much focused on being your one-stop shop for all the latest children’s fashion, shoes and accessories, with a special emphasis on Australian designers. Watch this space as we continue to expand our décor for children’s bedrooms and those special toys like the Smallstuff stylish prams and cots that we know everyone loves because of their classic appeal.
Our goal is to give customers the ultimate experience when shopping with us. As a busy mum of two little girls, a lot of time is spent researching brands and products so you don’t have to.
We will be regularly updating this blog to keep you up to date with all the new things happening at Mini Nation as well as regular updates on what is happening in the wider parenting world.
Take a moment to explore our new site, bookmark us, and please check in regularly to see what is new.
In the meantime, we know how important it is to people to know who is behind a brand so here are a few questions Jodie was asked recently. Enjoy!

Behind Mini Nation with Jodie
What is your inspiration for Mini Nation?
Other mums! There are so many amazing mums out there building and running their own businesses and I find them so inspirational. We are a strong supporter of other small businesses and are continually expanding our range in support of these.
What is the best thing about running an online business?
Flexibility around our girls – being able to spend plenty of time with them while they are young and hopefully building a business for their future. I love getting the girls involved in the business and learning how a business runs – both girls love trying out new products and my eldest (age 3) loves to help packing orders.
What do you value most and why?
Time with my family and friends – life can get so busy but my favourite thing to do is spend time with my family and our friends.
What is your favourite colour?
Blue – it’s so calming, and my favourite place to be is anywhere there is water.
What activities do you like doing with your children?
Swimming, playing games, jumping on the trampoline. Both girls are extremely active (with no fear!) so most of our time is spent on adventures outside.
What is the best thing about being a mum?
Watching my two little girls grow and develop every day. I have learnt so much from being a mum and I’m sure I’ve got plenty more to learn! One of my favourite things is watching them play together when they think I’m not listening or watching them, their creativity and ability to make a game out of seemingly nothing is something for us adults to aspire to!
