    Kid's VIP Shopping

    VIP Shopper Badge

    Do your kids have a list of presents to buy and don't know where to start? We've got Personal Shopping Helpers ready to give kids a VIP personal shopping experience! 

    Book in a time, bring a list, set a budget, and say goodbye for 30 minutes. When you come back, the child and their elf will have the gifts wrapped and ready to go!

    By appointment only - book on Facebook

    • Bring a parent-approved list of people to buy for (siblings, friends, parents)
    • Set a budget. We recommend buying a voucher on arrival (any unused funds will be store credit). Cash or a card with a set limit would also work.
    • Parents leave the shop. This is what makes it super special! Kids get all the attention and help they need without pesky parents around 😉
    • Kids help wrap the gifts. Wrapping can be half the fun!
    • VIP Badge included!

    When: 30 min sessions from 3pm on weekdays, from 12pm on weekends

    Where: Let the Children Play Toyshop

    Price: $15 per child
