Riley and Georgia

Mosey on Magic

Mosey on Magic
Meet the brother-sister team taking Harry Potter dress-ups to a new level

Riley, 10, and Georgia, 9, attended our first Showcase in November 2016 as guests. When they heard we were hosting another event on 30 April 2017, they grabbed the chance to launch a business based on the wands they’d been creating to play with at home from natural materials on their bush block in the Perth Hills. Mosey on Magic was born.

We were blown away with the care this pair took with their creations. The wands are truly exquisite, and so much more fun to play with than the standard plastic items you find in most shops.

Since becoming founding members of Maker Kids Club, they’ve been invited to attend the Western Australia Council for State School Organisations (WACSSO) conference at the Crown casino and have sold their wands at two markets (Mandurah in August and Brentwood in December). They usually sell $80 to $120 worth of wands, and they are more than happy to make wands on order according to the buyer’s specifications.

THE JOYS OF HAVING A BUSINESS PARTNER

There’s no doubt Riley and Georgia make a great team, but that doesn’t mean it’s always smooth sailing.

Riley was unable to make the most recent market, leaving Georgia to do the entire event. When asked how much of the profits she was willing to give her absent brother, she initially said ‘$5!’ before realizing that perhaps one day their roles would be reversed and she’d be unhappy if Riley was similarly unwilling to share.

This pair have grand plans for business expansion in 2018, which may include individual ventures and new products. We can’t wait to see what these astute young business people create next.

Love from our teachers

"The program brought small business and financial management to the forefront of our students minds. It really opened their eyes to the ‘real world’ and that money does not just magically appear. It put things into perspective and their initiatives displayed at the Market stall day really showed the learning they gained from the program.
The Year 5 students are already talking about it!"

Melanie Buller, Principal SHHP 2019

"I was absolutely blown away by how successful the night was. The students did an amazing job and I am so proud of them. I haven’t done the final count, but I won’t be surprised if between them they have raised over $2000 in profit! And it’s not over! I have a meeting with our P&F representatives tomorrow to see if we can support them with their Christmas stall."

Parents of Kidpreneurs - Kat, mum of Ash

How do parents feel about their kids running businesses? We are deeply curious about this at Maker Kids, so we ask the parents we meet regularly. As many of you know, Ash of Beauty From Ash's Products is one of our most successful kidpreneurs. In this video, we asked her mum, the marvellous Ezer Eve, what it's like. Hope you enjoy it 🙂
