About Us

South Meadow Ventures, LLC, formerly Nova Natural Toys & Crafts, LLC was founded in 2001 with a single consumer catalog title; Nova Natural Toys & Crafts. Nova Natural Toys & Crafts is committed to wholesome play with heirloom quality, non-disposable toys. In 2008 Nova Natural became the US distributor for Babylonia, a Belgian manufacturer of organic baby wraps and carriers and Fair Trade dolls.  In 2015 Nova Natural acquired the established consumer catalog titles Chinaberry and Isabella, continuing their missions to provide quality products, carefully curated and personally tested. In 2016 Nova Natural Toys & Crafts, LLC changed its name to South Meadow Ventures, LLC to reduce confusion between the parent company and its brands. Unfortunately, while we did our best to bring Chinaberry up-to-date, expanding its offerings while still keeping the founders’ high standards, it was clear that customers are choosing to purchase their children’s products from others. With sadness, we closed the Chinaberry brand in January 2019. For more information visit novanantural.com, isabellacatalog.com.
