Our Story

Habitots is a brand all about kids and families. We are all about developing our kids into engaged, happy little humans and aim to do this across all areas of our business. 

As a company, we do a lot of things and have our finger in a lot of pies! As a retail brand, we operate out of an HQ in Melbourne & run a robust online business with the aim to bring parents a unique range, that you can't find everywhere. In our HQ, we have 2 activity spaces that are used for our bespoke range of classes in art & music, for kids aged 0-10. Our activity spaces repurpose into venues for parties & events on weekends. We are no longer a cafe, but this enables us to focus all our energy on bringing you beautiful products, a variety of classes and parties! You're welcome to BYO food and drinks to use our lovely spaces. Our Albert Park village is full of amazing spots for coffess, babycinos and sweet treats that you can bring to Habitots and enjoy.

Outside our HQ, we're partnering with companies and organisations looking to engage with our community. We deliver our workshops outside our HQ, pop-up in malls, at markets & fairs, and then while we're at it, we help create content for our partners throughout the process. More than just an activation company or facilitator of kids & adult workshops, we understand that you have brands to build and help make it easy for you to do while working with us.  

About our founder, Suzanne Acteson 

After 11 years working in advertising and most recently running an agency in Melbourne, I left adland to follow my dream and the vision of Habitots I'd had in my head for over 7 years. 

I'm a mum to 3 small boys and I have the most supportive, funny (that's where the laugh in our tagline comes from) and encouraging husband ever. I could have never done this without his help. He calls me his rock but he's definitely mine. I guess we make a good team. 

I've been determined to bring Habitots to life and to do it differently. Not to follow all the rules, to run a business consciously and with thought about the people we work with, the products we bring in and the world we live in. 

I can't wait to meet you soon - please introduce yourself when you come in, I love to meet our customers and Habitots friends. We've got some exciting changes happening for our family in 2017, which also means changes for Habitots. Read all the info on our blog now!
