Our Story




Think. Play. Love. was developed and co-founded by life-long friends, Hannah Mills and Sam Mortlock.

Hannah and Sam come from a background in education and have 22 years of shared experience in early childhood and primary learning.

Prior to establishing Think.Play.LoveHannah has worked as an educator at one of New Zealand’s leading early childhood centres and for an early childhood tertiary provider, leading the enrolments team, recruiting early childhood teachers. Sam has worked extensively as a teacher across the primary sector and can speak from personal experience with her own baby, Cooper.

Both spent time in the UK, furthering their careers with young babies and children and it was during this time that their vision for Think.Play.Love was born and later developed.

Hannah and Sam are passionate about developing the intellectual, physical and emotional needs of our Kiwi babies and toddlers. With their wealth of experience and knowledge they have created a New Zealand product that will engage and capture the minds and souls of our Kiwi kids.

Learning through play is a powerful medium for any baby, toddler and parent… you and your baby will enjoy every minute of your time at Think.Play.Love!
