About Us

We’re big believers of buying quality over quantity here at The Toybox.  Hence the reason the toys we select are toys that will be passed down between children, cousins and further.  In fact, a lot of our toys that you see online here you might also find in your child’s local kindergarten or daycare, that’s how good they are. 

Formerly known as The Wooden Toy Box since its inception in 2008, The Toybox was acquired by Andrea & Andrew in April 2019. Having operated a children’s clothing store The Kids’ Store www.thekidsstore.co.nz for the last few years Andrea & Andrew saw an opportunity for a dedicated online toy store.  Whilst we have and always will be the biggest NZ retailer of Hape wooden toys, we’ve also added in some of our other favourite brands and the name change to The Toybox reflects this increased offering.
