Hi, I'm Anika
I'm a business owner and consultant. But, above all, I am a mum of three. I spent many years working in the City, and learnt the hard way, that just focussing on my career, didn't make me happy. Since having my children, I realised more and more how important it is for me to find that balance of being a present parent and achieving my goals as well.
I want to connect with my children on a daily basis, in ways that are simple, fun and affordable - so that I can do this quickly and easily EVERY SINGLE DAY. So that I can support my children and find time for me as well. That is why I founded Mummy.Made.This:
My mission is to ignite in parents around the world the beauty of connecting with their children day to day, and inspire creative play in simple ways that don't cost the earth or take lots of time. To help us all move away from screens as the be-all and end-all solution to find some peace as a parent, and help the next generation of little people thrive.
Does this resonate with you?
In today's busy, fast paced world, there often doesn't seem enough time to 'do it all', or at least to do everything well! So, you have to decide what matters most to you and focus on that.
At mummy.made.this our focus is on:
looking after the little people in our lives: giving them our time and attention to thrive and grow into strong, kind, independent young adults
looking after our planet: so that it is a place that future generations can enjoy, and passing on to our children the core value of caring for the environment
looking after the adults too: only if we fill our own cups, can we truly be present and care for others
Built around these core values, our products aim to make life a little bit easier, by offering clever, practical solutions so that adults have a bit more time, whilst focusing on the importance of play for children.
