With Christmas right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the best gifts for your little ones. Luckily, we have plenty of great toy stores to choose from here on the Gold Coast. Here are our five favourites…

Hurley Burley

For over two decades, Hurley Burley Toys has provided a huge range of children’s toys to the Gold Coast – you’d be hard pressed finding a more diverse offering on the Gold Coast. This family-run business offers educational toys, books, outdoor toys for the backyard and pool, card and board games, dress ups, animal figurines, puppets and theatre sets, trains, magnetic tiles… we could go on and on.


Madison Jane Boutique

With both an online and in-store offering, Madison Jane Boutique is a one-stop shop for childlike wonder. Located in Burleigh Heads, they stock everything from soft toys and dolls to puzzles, games, crafts, building blocks and pieces for outdoor play. They also have a beautiful range of wooden toys and ones for sensory play, so there really is something for every child.


Cabana Kids

Located in picturesque Sanctuary Cove, Cabana Kids embodies coastal cool – something that’s hard to find when it comes to toy shopping. Their range includes classic toys and cuddly bunnies, accessories and larger items like rockers. They even stock beautiful furniture like bassinets and change tables, alongside stylish children’s clothes and accessories.



Along with beautiful homewares, books and artworks, Heartfill also stocks a range of children’s toys designed with sustainability in mind. True to their brand mission, their range of toys are inspired by slow living and mindful consumption. Their dolls and children’s activities are made from materials like silicone and wool – no plastic in sight – and are timeless and durable, meaning they’ll be happily handed down through generations to come.


Little Loves

In the words of the Little Loves team themselves, “We love open-ended toys, ones where kids get to use that incredible imagination of theirs. A playsilk can be a river, a peg doll can be any person you like and blocks or magnets can become pretty much anything a kid can think of!” Their range includes dolls, rubber babies items, arts and crafts, creative toys and so much more.
