About Us? We think it should be more about you!
One of our customers recently
asked to deal with a real human and
computer when ordering their FOFA's.
We understand. We promise there are real humans here, even though you can order through the site.

A family-owned business in

Those everyday frustrations are the focus of Melbourne Designs' products.
If you ever find yourself saying "why can't they come up with ..." then
we want to be the "they" you are referring to. Quite a challenge.
Are you "Tired of
FOFA® is a Simple Solution.
Our first web-offered product, our Patented Find One, Find All® ( FOFA® ) is a perfect example.
Our Flat FOFAs (6mm) work in wallets or "velcro"ed to the back of cell phones & remote controls.
We have also simplified the setting of FOFA - 1 button and that is it!
FOFA-XD has all the things folks asked for. Now LOUDER, harder wearing, lighter (1/2 oz) and more attractive,
FOFAs are able to detect even buried objects (e.g. in a laundry hamper) with Proximity Detect™
which sends a radio beacon back to the FOFA-XD you are holding!
Make sure you order now while supplies
last! (And we're not kidding..)
Also, our Thanks to; Brenda C. for helping us optimize the site for the visually challenged.

The Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind

A Brief History of Key Finders and The FOFA® 2 Step Program.
"Hello, my name
is David Melbourne and I lose things.
But, it has been more than 10 years since I lost my keys!
Not because I got better, but because we developed FOFA®.
You see, while I still lose stuff every day, I don't lose it ALL at once.
With my FOFA's attached to my things, I can use something I can find to
find the thing I can't. Now I simply don't lose my stuff anymore!
I was a mess before FOFA®.
I would be ready for work and my keys would
run about the house and hide from me. My cell phone was so mobile,
it moved about on it's own. That's how it seemed anyway. You can't even call it
after a movie or a show either, as you turned it off. (No one reminds you to turn it
back on, do they?) I was spending more and more time looking for things.
I had to find a solution."
(Above NOT David!)
First Generation Key Finders - All Clapped out
I started off with some of those whistle/clapper type key finders, but while they went
off for no reason in church*, although they never would when you lost your keys!
(* Since I play the piano in ours, I couldn't risk that!)
They still sell these today! THEY HAVE NOT IMPROVED!
So if you see in a key finder's advertising "occasional false alarms"
Don't Buy it It will drive you crazy (not to mention all the other folks.)
Second Generation - Carry a transmitter base around? Not!
Then I tried the newer $50-$70 "Base" station key finders where you attach
receivers to your stuff, then have to use a huge transmitter to find them.
They were OK as long as you could find the transmitter, but when you lost things
away from home, you were out of luck - no transmitter!
It happened to me. Then I lost the transmitter too.
What was needed was a totally new approach.
Third Generation - Find One, Find All®
Then one day, we had a flash of inspiration, OK, Amanda did.
She said "wouldn't it be more useful if they could all find each other?"
Now I pretend it was all my idea in the first place. She understands.
So here's our 2 Step Program.
That's it. Problem solved. No group therapy. No
special diet. No pills.
We are already working on the next frustrations.
If you have one you want solving, let us know.
We love this stuff, really"

Some words about Security.
Our customers information security is of the utmost importance to us.
We delete ALL sensitive financial information the moment your FOFAs are ordered.
Yes, that means ordering more (and most people do once they have them) is a bit if a chore as you have to
re-enter the numbers again. Better to be safe though! In 10 years, we have not had any problems with this policy.
Our site is continually checked for current PCI Security by a third party security company.
Spam Free - No Hassle. We don't SPAM anyone! Ever!
When you enter an email, you will get just 2 emails. 1 for the receipt, 1 for the tracking. We won't give, sell, donate or copy your
