Toymate Want To Be Your Kids' New Best Mate
- Mums & Bubs
Well well well mate.... who said retail was dead?
If you think it is, you need to put your skates on and head to Toymate!
Not to dance on Toys ‘R’ Us' grave or anything (they went into liquidation last year) but Toymate, founded in 2005, has been focusing on doing it right rather than doing it fast.
You walk through a rainbow-lit entrance and run through floors covered in race-tracks and Monopoly squares. The stores encourage playing, trying and having fun - you will feel like a kid in a, well, toy store.
The company already have 18 stores in NSW and more recent openings in the Gold Coast and Perth.
Their new-look concept store in Loganholme, Queensland looks out of this world good. It has a children’s playground, a Yogurberry inside the store, a cafe with $1 coffees, an education room, and a place for adults to come and sit and relax. Heaven.
Additionally, Toymate has launched the ‘Festival of Fun’, an in-store event with character meet-and-greets, face painting, balloon bending, giveaways and prizes for kids, to mark the launch of its Christmas toy catalogue.
In Sydney you will find them in Blacktown, Campbeltown, Chatswood, Lidcombe, Baulkam Hills, Mount Druitt, Penrith, Top Ryde, Windsor, Warriewood Square. Find out more about TOYMATE here.
