The original concept of Twinkle Toes - Baby Hand & Feet Sculptures was
born in March 1996 and started in Brisbane, Australia. Since that time,
there has been an ongoing commitment to the improvement and refinement
of the exclusive range of quality products, processes and services that
has enabled the business to successfully reach the point where it
proudly stands today.
We, Cheryl and Trevor Riding, are the proprietors of "Twinkle Toes -
Baby Hand & Feet Sculptures". We have three children, Aaron, Grant and
Tegan. Cheryl works full time in the business, while Trevor works part
time, and also holds a full time senior managerial position. We became
owners of Twinkle Toes Baby Hand & Feet Sculptures in September 2000
after having joined as a franchisee of Brisbane Southside in October
We have seen the level of contact with Twinkle Toes - Baby Hand & Feet
Sculptures Head Office and the business of our franchisees grow over
this time, to confirm that Twinkle Toes - Baby Hand & Feet Sculptures is
a wonderful product that will continue to grow in popularity.
Evan after the enjoyment of seeing the thousands of sculptures that we
have made, we still experience amazement at the different shapes, sizes
and beauty of the little hand and feet sculptures that we produce.
The happiness and excitement on the part of parents and relatives when
they collect their products, continue to be especially gratifying.
Twinkle Toes - Baby Hand & Feet Sculptures has displays in many major
hospitals throughout Australia and New Zealand. This presence in
hospitals started in 1996 when the Brisbane Mater Hospital kindly gave
permission to place displays in and around their Maternity and New Life
Numerous other major hospitals throughout Australia and New Zealand have
also agreed to place Twinkle Toes displays/brochures in their hospitals.
We believe this is recognition of the wonderful service that we offer to
For allowing the placement of these displays, Twinkle Toes donates $5.00
to the hospital for each product sold through the hospital.
This commitment continues today and Twinkle Toes is proud to be part of
a program to assist in the care of our children. You will also find a
Twinkle Toes brochure in the Bounty Bag that is distributed to all new
mothers throughout Australia. The Australian branch closest to you is
easily contacted by simply telephoning 1300 78 11 55.
Another very special service is provided to the bereaved parents of
stillborn and terminal babies. This is a very sensitive issue, but for
those parents, their memories of their little ones are kept alive and
wonderful and will stay with them for a very long time. This service is
not performed by all franchises, but generally we are able to assist.
Over the years, the response has been positively overwhelming, so much
so, that there is a large and growing network of franchises presently
operating throughout Australia and New Zealand. We are confident that
this network will continue to grow as will the popularity of the
wonderful Twinkle Toes - Baby Hand & Feet Sculptures product.
Unfortunately, we have noticed a number of copycat businesses commence
in an endeavour to emulate the success of Twinkle Toes - Baby Hand &
Feet Sculptures. They have not been able to replicate the high quality

memories with the superior products of Twinkle Toes - Baby Hand & Feet
Sculptures. Unfortunately copycat businesses are a fact of life so
please be careful.
Twinkle Toes products are easily recognised by their seal of
