Play is fundamental to child development. Our inventory of toys promotes physical activity, fine motor movement, imagination, creativity, problem-solving, role-play, construction, matching, sharing, active listening as well as other social, physical and mental skills.
All families in the Christchurch South area are welcome to come along and see what we're all about!! We have been supporting play within our community for over 25 years! WE ARE OPEN! We are open again for toy hires and are looking forward to seeing you all!
