The Big Toy Month is here again!

The Warehouse Big Toy Month is back for 2019 and it’s bigger and better than ever!

From 27th June to 21st July 2019 the kids can again enjoy fun Playdates in-store and, of course, there will be lots of toys at prices the whole family will adore.

The Big Toy Month

The Warehouse is New Zealand’s favourite toy store and home of all your favourite characters. Each year New Zealanders look forward to The Warehouse’s Big Toy Month and this year is no different. In 2018 The Warehouse was delighted to welcome kids (and their squads!), into their stores all across New Zealand to enjoy being able to play more for less and are excited to be able to do it all over again!

Throughout Big Toy Month, New Zealanders will have access to Hot Buys across a huge range of toys, gaming equipment and other related kids products. There will also be a bunch of exciting Playdate activities taking place in store. So it’s time for Kiwi kids to get the squad back together and have some FUN!

Connecting through play

This year, for the first time ever, there is an exciting new product for Big Toy Month – The Warehouse Playdate Trading Cards.

With every $10 spent in store (not just on toys) during Big Toy Month, customers will receive one of fifteen collectable Playdate Trading Cards. Keep an eye on your letterbox for a Playdate Trading Card Collector Mat or collect one free in-store for kids. The kids can use the Mat to track, collect and trade their way to a complete set.

Some of your favourite toys will also be popping up in-store and hosting Playdate Trading Card Swap Meets during the school holidays. Check out @TheWarehouseNZ on Facebook for your local meet.

Making it easy

In addition to the Hot Buys across a huge range of kid-related products, The Warehouse is also proud to offer $10 deposit laybuy in all stores – perfect if you want to start stocking up on Christmas gifts.

Part Pay will be available online for those who wish to ‘play now and pay later’.

Find out more about Big Toy Month at and bring the kids and their squad to The Warehouse, NZ’s favourite toy store and home of all your favourite characters, during Big Toy Month to join in the fun!

Big Toy Month is on from 27th June to 21st July 2019 at The Warehouse near you!

    The laybuy option is great as it can be such an expensive time around Christmas. I also love that you can shop online -perfect for buying and sending gifts to the larger family – I have bought a couple of boardgames this way through the warehouse website.

    My husband and I went through the Warehouse the other night and had a nosy around to see what we could potentially buy for the kids for this christmas and their upcoming birthdays. Our 9 year old son is of a great age as he can now ask directly for what he wants and our 2 year old daughter has really started to develop strong interests which we love responding to.

    We were in the warehouse today and got some trading cards it’s a shame they are sometimes forgotten by staff as I have missed out on some. We bought a new board game today and some uno cards it’s great to get kids of devices. There are lots of great toys and board games at the warehouse and with the $10 laybuy it makes things a lot easier for families.

    This has been absolutely amazing. My to children get 5 dollars each week for doing daily chores like making beds emptying the rubbish and doing dishes. And normally we can’t find much for them for 5 dollars apart from a cheap toy they’ve already had but this toy month has made it so much fun and so much easier finding a toy each week. I also love the $10 laybuy at this time of year to get birthdays and Christmas gifts sorted and some warm clothing for winter wardrobe before it comes at us in full swing.

    I so appreciate the warehouse for this… it has helped us every year to be able to afford loads of goodies for our little ones… the $10 laybuy along with the July toy month specials means more bang for your buck… we get the 3 month laybuy offered by the warehouse instead of part pay as payments come out a bit sooner and scheduled dates as opposed to an amount we pay as we need to. By September we usually have paid it off and picked it up…hidden in the house and waiting to be wrapped for christmas… i recommend this to all my mum friends usually as it takes the pressure off financially and takes away the last minute toy rush too..

    This is really cool! I’m not sure if my 6 year old would do the trading cards but she always loves walking around The Warehouse looking at toys haha. The $10 layby is a great idea and especially for me as my daughter’s birthday is Boxing Day so I can put away some things for Christmas and birthday 🙂 I might keep an eye out on Facebook for any updates so we can go and have a look though.

    I love the fact The Warehouse includes the $10 Layby option on already amazingly affordable deals …not only getting deals but getting sorted for Xmas and bdays later in the year.
    I’m deff going to be getting my boys a few things during the toy month and stashing away
