About Us

Our Story

Established in 2001, Kidstuff Timaru is a family-owned toy shop specialising in pregnancy, baby and children's needs. Owners, Dorothy and Andrew Tucker, started Kidstuff after having seven children of their own and seeing a gap in the market for high-quality children's clothing, shoes and toys. The range of products Kidstuff stocks has expanded hugely to meet customer demand. All permanent and casual Kidstuff staff members are experienced with children and delight in their company. Stop by Kidstuff in Timaru or shop from the extensive collection online today.
