Bath Buddies and The Bean People - an amazing story!

Welcome to Bath Buddies, home of NZ's favourite kids Bath Bombs! 

Bath Buddies is a New Zealand owned and operated small business, primarily focused on the distribution and wholesale of The Bean People's product range. We are the sole distributor based in Auckland's North Shore, offering a national distribution throughout NZ.

Our products are manufactured in Cape Town, South Africa by The Bean People, a small family run business who have been producing these unique and ethically sound bath toys since 1988. Despite their growth and worldwide distribution, they continue to create each product by hand, allowing them to support a local underprivileged community, mainly women, through employment and funding of a local NGO school, upskilling adults and educating children.

Hi, I'm Kalin, owner, dispatcher, cleaner, chief of staff, lone ranger of Bath Buddies!  My team and greatest supporters are my husband and 3 gorgeous kids, who re always eager to be my product testers! My story goes back quite a few years from when, as a teenager, I began working for The Bean People in South Africa, fast forward a few years, a few children of my own and a move to NZ in 2014, that Bath Buddies was established, bringing fizzy, colourful, surprise kids Bath goodies to the children of New Zealand!

As we bring joy to Kiwi kids right here in NZ, back in South Africa, together with your support we are helping make a difference to many families, that without The Bean People, would not have the promising future that they have.

We love having you share our journey and are looking forward to many exciting ventures ahead of us!
