Scoobies Inception – Transition from Melbourne to India Personal parenting travail and entrepreneurial stints of the husband-wife duo Vasundhra and Shantanu Dublish, accompanied by their business partner, Dharmesh Shah gave shape to Scoobies, a vertical of Optimal Digitech Private Limited.
Vasundhra and Shantanu Dublish were based in Melbourne, Australia and they decided to shift back to India in the later months of 2016. In this transition, Vasundhra who herself is a product designer realized that her kids missed Australian products in India. This sparked the idea behind Scoobies. Vasundhra Dublish along with Kamakshi Manchanda (VP of Marketing & Sales at Scoobies) traveled all over India to understand the gaps in the Indian kids’ market and what kids & parents expect the product/s to look like.
Our products are exclusively designed in Australia considering the kids’ safe quality that parents look for apart from designs. Every Scoobies product goes through multiple cycles before it comes in the market for sale. Said Shantanu Dublish while getting nostalgic about Scoobies initial journey.

Scoobies success journey – Revisiting 2018
We started with a team of 10-12 people and within the span of 4 years, weve grown as a brand with a workforce of over 100+ employees. Scoobies is covered by multiple publications including Mompresso, LBB, So Delhi, and so on.
When COVID hit our country in the year 2020, we withstood two major lockdowns. While 80% of businesses were closed, Scoobies expanded its digital footprint and emerged as a strong brand. We are working consistently to expand as a global brand and make Scoobies a household name in every nook and corner of the world. This is just a start of the bigger dream we started with .. said Kamakshi Manchanda while talking about the brands roadmap.
Scoobies: A road ahead
We started with a dream of making kids explore their innate capabilities and competence. Making childhood a celebration & school memories a remarkable experience is what we worked and are working to do. Scoobies new stores & franchises are already a part of a bigger plan in the domestic and international markets with a special focus on the US and Dubai markets.
Our team of product designers & experts is consistently working to create something new and inspiring for kids. Our pool of products will go wild in the coming years.
As a retail brand, it requires you to be on your toes 24/7. There are tons of product launches, exhibitions, events, influencer meetups, and whatnot. We extend our appreciation to the entire team who has been associated with the brand.
