To celebrate the 100th anniversary of much-loved Australian children’s classic The Gumnut Babies by May Gibbs, we have wrapped up our fave Gumnut Babies buys – can we have one of each to go please?

Ask any Aussie kid what comes to mind when they see a gumnut on the ground and I’m sure it will be memories of the Gumnut Babies. We’re still so grateful to have had the opportunity last year to tour May Gibbs’s homeNutcote’ in Neutral Bay, Sydney.
