WHEN we were 10, our biggest concern was getting home from school in time for our favorite shows and how many Freddos we could buy for a quid.
But for Pixie Curtis, life couldn’t be more different.
Although she’s still in primary school, the Australian teen has started her own company, Pixie’s Fidgets – with the help of her mother Roxy, of course.
The mother and daughter officially started the toy business in May – and within the first 48 hours, their colorful toys sold out.
Furthermore, PR expert Roxy told Stellar that the company raised over $200,000 [£105k] in its first month.
But this isn’t the 10-year-old’s only business – her mother also created a hair accessory brand named after her when she was just a kid called Pixie’s Bows.

Two affiliated companies Pixie’s Pixs – a place that sells children’s toys, clothing and other accessories with a 10-year-old stamp of approval.
Commenting on her daughter’s huge success, Roxy said she’s arranged all of this for Pixie so she “can retire at 15” if she wants to.
However, the mother says that is quite unlikely given her entrepreneurial drive before her teenage years.
“The most exciting thing for me is the entrepreneurial spirit she acquired at a young age,” she said.
“When I was 14, I got a job at McDonald’s because that’s what you did in my days.
“So I think the biggest thing for me is her push as an entrepreneur. Yes, I turned it on, but she still has it, which is the most rewarding part for me. “
Roxy, who has several successful businesses including Sweaty Betty PR, shares Pixie with husband Oliver Curtis, whom she married in 2012.
The couple are also parents to six-year-old Hunter, and live in a $6.6 million (£3.6 million) mansion in Sydney.
In August, Pixie received £265 Balenciaga flip flops and a Prada handbag for her 10th birthday – not to mention the lavish party held in her honor.
Last month, Roxy shared Pixie’s VERY lavish Christmas list – includes a new phone and a £50 anti-aging cream.
Four months ago, Roxy bought a £141k Mercendes Benz for her two children, which is vertically identical to the one she had them in.
Talking to News.com.au, she says: “The most important thing to me was that both her and her brother Hunter were safe on the road when going to and from school so I bought a car for her.
“Obviously she doesn’t ride it, she drives it like her brother to school and to any activity.
“Given the number of fatalities on our roads, their safety is very important, so if that means buying a car with extra safety features, that’s what I would do. .”
