About us

Welcome to Monkey Buttons

At Monkey Buttons we know that having children is both exciting and expensive and that sometimes the choice and variety of things you can or should buy seems endless.  

That is why we only recommend products that we love, that our own little monkeys have product tested and have survived all the love that they have thrown at them. Because lets face it, sometimes children can be quite rough and tumble with their things and nobody wants to buy products that your children can break as soon as you open the package.

And because we also understand that being a parent sometimes feels like it's all about your little monkeys and less about you, we've also pulled together some products for you as well. Products that are useful (and where we can stylish), anything we can do to save you time in your day so you can spend more time doing the things you love.

Finally, as we attempt to source products at the best possible prices to help make your money go further, this means that from time to time we might run out of stock of certain items.  If there is a product that you'd like us to test or offer for sale please don't hesitate to let us know. 

You are welcome to view our products prior to purchase. We are located in Blockhouse Bay, Auckland. Viewing by appointment only please.

Keep an eye out on the site, or our facebook page as we will be reguarly updating the site with new products as we get them.  We will also have specials for our Facebook friends.

Happy Shopping!



Safe Sippy 2

Date: August 2013

Product Tester:  Jessica B

Product: Safe Sippy2


When I first opened the packet on our brand new safe sippy I was a little apprehensive because it’s quite big! How am I supposed to use this with my little baby who is just starting solids.

However I was pleasantly surprised! The first time I tried it I realised how well it is actually designed. It has a great wee curve on the drinking spout so when my little girl is having a drink, since she is still learning what to do, its great because I can just tip it a little bit and it just trickles into her mouth. Yay no drowning the baby! Its also great because it has flexi rubber on the outside which makes it easy for me to hold so it doesn’t slip and this will be great for when she gets bigger and is able to hold it herself. I also really liked that is has all the added extras of a straw and handles that you can take on and off which means it can grow with your baby. It also has a great “plug” that you can pop inside the lid so that it doesn’t spill on trips! (You just have to remember to take it out haha)

Overall I think this bottle is really cool and comes in some great colours, I would definately go and buy one of these myself!
