What will you find in the Brighton Toyshop?

Our latest fascination…

Wooden toys combined with new technology – sounds a little odd, but it really works!

This charming wooden laptop is actually a chalk board and a magnetic board – take the keys off the keyboard and position them into words on the screen, draw with the chalk and use your handy mobile at the same time – a great design that may be easier to use than an actual laptop.

Wonderful creative play that everyone will want to join in with.

Manager’s Special

With the 50th anniversary upon us, this is the month of the moon.

What better way to celebrate this than with Professor Astro – the space cat who goes on many adventures.

This month, we have Professor Astro’s activity book on special offer.

Just come into the Brighton Toyshop and say ‘ASTRO‘ to receive the book half price – just £5.00.

Competition Time

A photo competition this month.

We are giving away a copy of our ever popular book, Pets In Pants.

All you need to do is to send us a photo of your favourite pet, in pants! Be creative and see what you come up with – favourite photos will be chosen by the team at the end of the month. Please send to brighton@whirligigtoys.co.uk

Have fun!
