About Us

Happy Jo Designs was founded in 2008 when Jo had her first child and made a very practical Nappy Change Bag. She wanted to help other new parents with practical, washable accessories so the Nappy Change Bag was launched at the Bellingen Market, NSW, Australia in early 2009.

Jo soon discovered that there was a need in the market for a Toddler Bed for Day Care so she invented the PILANKY®.This personalized product was loved by many parents and Day Care educators across the North Coast region of Australia.

These two products were so popular at the markets that Jo focused on Online Sales and moved to a bigger market area in the Tweed Coast. The Gold Coast markets have been extremely successful over the past 6 years as they attract thousands of visitors from all over the world.

Thank you to all Happy Jo Designs’ customers for the wonderful positive feedback and promotion of these products.
