You may wonder who are the people behind Magblox® and Magbrix®?
We are Carlos and Valeria (mucho gusto! – pleased to meet you all!). We are an Aussie-Ecuadorian family based in Sydney. We are a family team of 4, including our cheeky little man 'S' and his furry 4-legged brother Kory. Our journey commenced 4 years ago, since then we have facilitated many workshops in NSW and ACT. Utilising our educational material and toys, we have had the opportunity to teach hundreds of children, and engage with their dedicated educators. We feel blessed and proud on where we are now and how far we've come.
Our business was founded in December 2015, our guiding principle was to find a way to help children and families with limited educational resources. We launched JC Creative Toys as an online store so people could have access and learn about STEM toys.
As time went by the business started to develop into other areas of education, that’s how we created our STEM workshops and gradually we took the brand to educational centres in Sydney. Initially this wasn't a full time gig, however growing positive feedback encouraged us to commit ourselves 100% to the business. We knew it would be a lot of hard work, long hours and some sacrifices to ensure we could deliver that quality service and product we continuously strive for.
With the help and encouragement of our family & friends, some faith & trust, we can honestly say to you it was the best decision we made. Our journey to date has allowed us to create and innovate a different approach and have a real focus on what we wanted to achieve.
While COVID-19 has been a hit on many businesses around the world, we hope that by 2022 we can start a foundation that will provide access to free education from early years and we aim that our STEAM programs in Australia are also introduced in their curriculum to help shape future world citizens. While we are constantly working to make a small difference here in Australia, your support is also helping us shape a bigger dream in Ecuador and places where educational resources are not as readily available.
Thank you for taking your time to read our story, on behalf of our family we thank you for your support and trust.
