Welcome to Whirligig Toys

We love creative toys that really engage children and hope this is the place that you can find your perfect present.

We specialise in ‘things to make and do’ – it could be a great family game, an arts and craft project or a construction kit to build – something that children can feel really proud of when they have completed it.

Shopping with us is easy – free delivery on orders over £20, a free birthday card writing service and gift wrapping available too. Every time you place an online order with us, we will plant a mangrove tree in Madagascar on your behalf.

Our New Christmas Brochure is now ready to view – just click on the moving image to access it.

Making Your Orders Easy

Getting the birthday present right is so important and we hope we have made everything as easy as possible.

When you get to the checkout, you will be able to select one of our FREE BIRTHDAY CARDS.

All you need to do it to tell us who the present is for and what you would like to put in the card – we will use our best hand writing and choose a card we think is suitable for the age of the child and include it in your parcel. Job done!

You can also choose to have your presents wrapped at a cost of £1.50 for all your items.
