The iconic Australian brand Mambo was launched in 1984 with a distinctive graphic style. Since then, this surf-culture-inspired brand has become known for its bright colours and bold patterns that perfectly represent the Australian summer.

Mambo produce a fab range of kids clothes and fun accessories which they showcased at the One Fine Baby fair earlier this month, along with a fun surf style photo booth.

The Mambo kids range includes some great tshirt and jumper designs.

What is your favourite way to spend time with the kids?

We love the beach – my husband was a Mambo Pro Surfer, so we are excited to give our daughter a run on a soft board this summer.


What’s for breakfast?

Quick, simple and healthy in our house.  I work full time, so clean up can’t take too long either. Always starts with a banana, then Ill chop up some fruit (kiwi fruit, apple, pear, strawberries and blueberries are favourites) and throw on some natural yogurt. Third course is a piece of toast, with avocado spread or sometimes honey.


What’s your favourite thing to bake?

I don’t bake much, sticky date pudding is my specialty if I do. We are the sort of people that if there is something sweet in the house, it will be devoured in its entirety in 0.2 seconds. So I prefer not to have the temptation. 


What’s your favourite bedtime story?

NUDIE RUDIE! Or when its my husbands turn, I love standing at the door eavesdropping on him making up his own version of the storybook. Our daughter is too young to notice any diversion from the real plot. The Hungry Caterpillar character has been re-named Daddy-pillar (my hubby has a good appetite haha), I have made a few cameos as Sleeping Beauty, and Spot is now named after our pet dog Ambrosius….we live and breathe the Mambo philosophy, and never take anything too seriously ;)


What is your go to remedy for a tantrum?

Consistency.  We stick to our guns, and back up each other 100% and if we don’t necessarily agree with the others actions, we discuss it later, out of sight from our daughter. She knows there is no clambering to the other parent if she isn’t happy with a decision…. most (some) of the time ;)
