Hi, I’m Kerry, I make up one third of the team and have the very posh title of Founder and Ethical Officer at Dinks!
My hobbies include shopping, eating out, shopping, drinking wine and shopping! I have spent the last 16 years working as an accountant and recently set up my own firm to work alongside Dinks.
I fell pregant and unfortunately for us, it was not meant to be, we lost our first precious baby through miscarriage. As you can imagine, we were devastated. I really needed a distraction to help me through what was one of the worst times of my life.
We took a little break away and while we were out having dinner, I had a little idea. That idea was Dinks, (although I hadn’t come up with the name yet!)
We have always been conscious about the environment and really wanted to buy natural equipment and toys for our child. It was then that we realised the need for a more efficient way to source contemporary natural products that were also eco-friendly and in one place.
We began doing some market research to start our adventure
into the baby/toddler industry and while building it we discovered that I was pregnant again. We were a little shocked that I had fallen pregnant so soon, and although it was a happy time, I was also full of worry. Fast forward months and our little Dinky Rainbow baby, Otis was born. Happy, healthy and just perfect.
With our hearts now full, we launched DINKS in 2020, with the view to bring parents a place to shop for beautifully crafted natural, contemporary (and as eco-friendly as we could) products for their child, so they could create a safe, fun and stimulating environment for their baby/child with a direct connection to the natural world.
We hope you enjoy browsing our site and find just what you are looking for.
