The Toy Chest is a small family business. As a family, we have faced and continue to face some big struggles, and this business is a vital support to us. When you buy from us instead of a "big box" store, you are helping real people in a real way, and in return, we go above and beyond for you as our customer. You can read a little about our family in the About Us section.

Nope. The Toy Chest is an ecommerce store, meaning we operate entirely online. We are a small family business, so our office and inventory is kept at our home and we don't have a shop-front. However, if you are local to Rockhampton or Gracemere in Queensland, I offer a delivery service. You can select this option during the checkout procedure.
Afterpay is a service that allows you to make and receive purchases right away while paying for them over four interest-free payments made every 2 weeks. At the checkout, choose Afterpay as your payment method. First-time customers will need to register with Afterpay while returning customers simply log in to make their purchase. The first payment is made at the time of purchase. Learn more here.
