  • Jumping castles

    Jumping Castles

    Importing jumping castles is an excellent way to add fun and excitement to parties, events, and special occasions in New Zealand. Whether you’re looking to import bouncy castles for rentals, grand openings, birthday parties, family reunions, or other celebrations, the benefits are plentiful. By importing, you can access a variety of designs and innovative features that will surely impress your clients and guests.

    Daycare Centre Toys & Equipment

    High-quality toys and equipment are crucial for engaging and entertaining children at daycare centres. We specialise in helping New Zealand daycare centres import top-notch toys and equipment. Whether you need educational materials, outdoor play structures, or age-appropriate toys, there is a vast selection available for import to suit your needs. Our expertise ensures that you receive the best products for fostering a stimulating and safe environment for children.

    Plastic Balls For Play Pits

    Importing plastic balls for play pits is vital for creating safe and enjoyable playgrounds. These balls provide cushioning for children when they fall and offer a soft surface for running and playing freely. Their lightweight nature makes transportation and installation easy, reducing time, labour costs, and the risk of injuries associated with heavier equipment. Importing plastic balls is essential for maintaining a fun and secure play area for children of all ages.

    Air Blowers For Jumping Castles

    A jumping castle is incomplete without a reliable air blower to keep it inflated. Many customers import both jumping castles and air blowers together, often including spare blowers to ensure uninterrupted fun in case of malfunction. As long as the power adaptor is compatible with New Zealand’s electrical standards, your jumping castle will be operational in no time. Investing in quality air blowers ensures the longevity and functionality of your inflatables.
