Meet Our Founder, Peter

Hello - I'm Peter and I founded Whirligig Toys in 2012. I have the best job in the world - a full time toy researcher, responsible for finding the toys that we stock and playing with them to ensure that they meet our standards.

We specialise in 'things to make and do' - creative toys that really engage children. We have shops across the South East and online, full of toys that are great fun to play with.

We hope you find your perfect present within our shops.

We planted 1320 trees this year!

Each order you place on our website, creates a new tree in Madagascar and we have just placed our order for the year!

We stock a wonderful range of creative toys...

Where does the name come from?

Growing up in Brighton, Peter and his dad always loved this set of lights on the seafront. Originally known as the Brighton Sputnik, they renamed it 'The Whirligig'. Play the video to see the original moving.

This is Whirli, our mascot, saying hello and keeping us all in check.

We hope that you find something amazing that will make someone very happy in our shops and online.

If you are looking for something and can't find it, just ask, and we will put Whirli on the case and see if we can help.
