Whirligig Toys in the community
As your local toy shop, we love being involved in children’s activities that happen near our shops. Here are some of the things we have been up to recently…
Tunbridge Wells Lantern Parade
Collecting toys for good causes
Local community festivals
Family funday in Canterbury
Brighton Science Festival
We were delighted to team up with Sarah Reast from Timberkits to put on children’s science workshops in the science festival – we introduced children to cams and linkages and got some amazing creations back from them.
We have been asked by a number of primary schools to visit with our amazing range of moving toys and to help children to make their own.
Peter, who founded Whirligig, was originally a primary school teacher and is happy to come and help.
Recently, the great graphic novel ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret’ has been a great stimulus for discussion and design technology in schools. Based on this, we have put a workshop together using innovative cams and linkages set from our friends at Timberkits.
If you would like to find out more about these workshops, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each year, Whirligig Toys allocates an amount to give to support charities. This includes sponsoring a child abroad and donating to local causes. We also actively engage with suppliers who have similar charitable aims and links with environmental, animal and children’s charity causes.
We know that many of our customers also have their own charity causes, often linked with local schools and organisations near to our shops. Where possible, we are happy to support you. Please contact email@example.com with further information.
