'Maua' means 'little'

I’m Maua, the creator of Maua Gang. ‘Maua’ means ‘little,’ but my whole life has been about big pursuits. Starting from the time I was little, I honed my handicraft skills, taking after my mother. It was a gift that has always felt natural to me, something passed down to my mom from my grandmother as well.

These skills born to me in my bloodline

As a child, I was always busy colouring, drawing, cutting, glueing, sewing, or knitting things. I loved creating with my own two hands. There were peace and inspiration in it all.

I started knitting while I was only in nursery school. Later on, I learned how to crochet. With my mum’s teachings, I quickly learned how to master the sewing machine. These skills born to me in my bloodline became second nature, and with her loving training, it’s what helped me finish clothing design and sewing school.

Love and enjoy the gang

I stumbled into making plushies much by accident. One day, a friend asked me to make a devil for a birthday present. That’s how Frank Evil was created. I loved the whole process of making him so much that I started sewing my other ideas and brought them all to life. Jo Bunny, Jimmy Chew, and all the rest of the gang of crazy plushies is how Maua Gang took the world by storm.

I hope you will love and enjoy the entire gang as much as I’ve loved creating them!

The best mum in the world! Funny, talented toy designer with a big heart. Loves animals and good company too!


This daddy is so awesome, he handles all the technical stuff for our website which keeps it running smoothly. He's a book and game enthusiast when not working!
Zosia from Maua Gang Toys


The best quality control tester. She loves tearing out teddy bears' eyes and laughs as the stuffing spills onto her desk because she knows that if any toy could survive with Zosia for several hours, that means it can last forever!
Pixi from Maua Gang Toys


The craziest dog in Croydon, no doubt! This pup is adored by all the kids and adults. He loves to eat, bark at everything that moves- well he's not wrong about that one-and run around as if there were never a tomorrow.
I ordered it for myself but now my pet parrot has become obsessed with it and follows the banana where ever it is. Such a cute purchase, great quality! I ordered in the morning and it arrived the next day - amazingly fast!!

My three year old loves his new toy. It’s such a fun character and the perfect size for popping in a bag so I think it will be going on lots of adventures with him. It’s also really soft and comforting to hold and he is cuddling it as I write this review.
