The Cactus Story


Australia's best watches and smartwatches for Kids, Teens and Tweens.

Cactus delivers uniquely designed, durable, analogue and digital watches that help teach children how to tell the time and enjoy their first ever watch.

Cactus Watches was started in 2006 by husband-and-wife duo Len and Sheryl bringing together Len’s many years of experience in the watch industry and Sheryl’s experience working with school-age children.

With so little choice for parents who wanted to buy their child a first watch that is durable, stylish and an educational tool – Cactus Watches was born. Dominating the market with a wide range of designs and options to suit any child and parents’ needs, Cactus Watches is today the top selling kids watch brand in Australia.

"We are passionate about our carefully designed range of watches for kids, teens (and beyond!). We wholeheartedly believe every child is unique with their own sense of style and they should have a watch to match. Our collections are fun, colourful, and trendy and offer the perfect first watch for your child." Sheryl Smith, Founder.

Since commencing, Cactus Watches has now expanded to include their newest range of kids’ smartwatches, fitness trackers and headphones – with hopes to expand even more in the future.

Enjoy the newest collection of watches and noise limiting kids’ headphones too - and we hope your kids, teenagers and youngsters love their first watch!
