Welcome to the Elijah and Crumpet website! Our mission is to raise awareness and inclusion of Down syndrome through our YouTube channel and our children’s books, the first of which is ‘Motivate Man’.

If you need an introduction – here’s a photo from our T.V. appearance. There’s Dad, Elijah and Crumpet … all meeting Hugh Jackman! Sorry, Dad should be last – see that arm? Well, that’s me. Yes, if you hadn’t realised from Elijah spilling the beans whenever he possibly can, I play Crumpet. My name’s Rob. Nice to ‘meet’ you.

We now live in Katoomba, just west of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia. Prior to this we lived in Brisbane for 17 years. Our household consists of me, Mum, Elijah and Sapphire our Siamese cat. Elijah’s older brother Thomas has now moved out and goes to Uni.

I don’t appear on the show as I’m a puppeteer and they don’t normally show themselves, do they! So the idea behind having a blog is to be able to communicate thoughts, ideas, history, projects and future plans in a better format than as Instagram comments and Tweets!

Anyway, this was just a quick introduction to say “G’day” and “THANK YOU” for visiting. Please feel free to contact us with questions and comments or feedback.

Have a great day! Best wishes, Rob

Entertain. Educate. Inspire.
