About Us


My name is Melodie Kruger, the owner and founder of Brainy Bugs online shop.  I am a qualified Foundation Phase teacher with an Honours Degree in Inclusive Education.  I've taught children in various early development and foundation grades, and managed pre-schools in Tembisa and Waterkloof, Pretoria.  This has taught me how to help the developmental needs of a wide range of children with different abilities and experience.

One of my many passions is to help children develop the skills they need to succeed.  Together with my own passion for building jigsaw puzzles and my love for children, this venture was born.  

I'd like to assist you with the needs of your child.  You are welcome to browse our site, or if you have specific needs or would like personal recommendations for your child's age or situation, you can contact me on sales@brainybugs.co.za or submit a query using the form below.

I'll be happy to discuss your specific situation and prepare a personal recommendation for tools and activities to help your child grow and learn.

Let's work together to make sure the future of your child is the best it can be!
