About Tiger Tribe
Tiger Tribe create beautiful, compact and portable activity sets, gifts and toys for kids, from babies through to 12.
Husband and wife team Anthony and Naomi established Tiger Tribe in 2007, from the garage of their family home in Melbourne, Australia. As parents to two little tigers themselves, their vision was to create imaginative and fun products for children. Now, over a decade later, they’ve moved out of the garage and the team has grown to 16, including a superstar design team (and office dog, Marley!).
Their products are thoughtfully designed in-house with Portable Play in mind. Activity sets, toys and gifts are designed easy to pack and convenient to carry for little tigers (and parents of little tigers) on the go.
Each and every Tiger Tribe product is designed to pass international safety standards. Products are subject to the most rigorous product safety testing. These tests include: ASTM, EN71, ISO-8124 AS/NZS 8124 and REACH.
