About Us

Playfull Toyshop was set up by Kerstin and Nigel Price in the summer of 2002.

Kerstin started making cloth dolls for their own three children in the 1980s. She continued making them for friends and family and began selling them at school fairs. At this point Kerstin and Nigel began importing hand-made wooden toys from Sweden (where Kerstin is from).

The opportunity came along to open a shop on Bristol’s famous Gloucester Rd. and the rest is history!

Since opening we have extended our number of suppliers year by year – most are based in Europe but we have found quite a few in the UK – some even in Bristol. We always ensure that our goods are made from sustainably sourced materials.

We sell games, jigsaws, music CDs, craft kits and materials, many kinds of wooden toy, a large selection of books, cards and many other items. You’ll find lots of interesting gift ideas for children from birth to about 12 years of age. We’re always looking out for new imaginative toys that will stimulate our youngsters.

Despite a responsible policy towards the environment, don’t expect our toys to cost the earth. Great gift ideas start from as little as £2 at Playfull Toyshop.

Please get in touch with any enquiries. We’re looking forward to hearing from or seeing you soon.
