Our story

Created by two parents looking for a better way to play.

We all want what’s best for our babies. But when it comes to choosing the right educational toys for your child’s brain development, the amount of information out there is overwhelming. And with nappy-changes and nap-times keeping you busy enough as it is, it’s tough to know where to start. PlayLogy was created to take out the guesswork, and to give our little ones the best start possible.

Quality

You only want the best for your baby, and so do we.

Care

We care for our PlayLogy community like family.

Fun

We’re young at heart, and we live for play.

“PlayLogy helps caregivers tackle the challenges of identifying the right toys for their baby’s age and stage. Using decades of developmental science research, PlayLogy selects toys and activities that are targeted for specific developmental windows across the first two years of life.”

Jenni Low

Jenni is a qualified Early Childhood Teacher, specialising in infant and toddler care. Jenni runs the instagram account @creativeplayideas. She’s an expert in educational fun, and passionate about all things play – and we’re very lucky to be bringing her flair for creative play to PlayLogy. We’ve worked with Jenni to create an age-and-stage-based creative play idea for each PlayPack. When you buy a PlayBox, you’ll get an email detailing the idea, a list of things you need to create it, and instructions on how you and your little one can bring it to life.

"Igniting a child's curiosity and desire to explore, stimulates their imagination and creative learning potential. Creative play is intelligence in motion"

Hear from our happy little customers.

My little girl loves every item in her PlayBox. I love spending quality time with her, really watching her learn and interact with the items. I didn't know play was such an important part of learning so, it was great to be told exactly what to do!

Chloé

We like knowing that experts have worked on creating PlayLogy boxes. Being sent educational toys and instructions on how to play with our son, took a huge weight off our shoulders!
