Manager’s Special

This month, we are thinking about great games that the whole family can join in with.

These spin games are great fun – get the ball moving around the dish – you have until the ball stops moving to complete you task! There are three versions – a matching game, a naming game and an acting out game.

Simple to use and fun to play – we think everyone will have fun with these.

This month, our Canterbury shop has a special offer – when you purchase any other item, if you say SPIN, we will give you one of the games half price – just £4.99!

In the news

Peter was recently visited at the shop by the Canterbury Journal when they asked, “Does this man have the best job in Canterbury?” Here Peter shows some of our favourite products and explains the Whirligig Philosophy.

Marjorie’s Christmas Letter

Many of you will have followed the fascinating story of Marjorie over Christmas last year. The clips from the BBC news are here to watch if you missed it! Just so you know, the family were located and have since visited the shop and we were delighted to hear more about the letter and their link to their past.
