Welcome to Charlie Horse Toys

Your go-to destination for inspiring resources and captivating toys that spark curiosity and promote learning through play. I'm Nicola, the proud owner and I'm always on the lookout for new and exciting products to enrich your children's lives.

With a diploma in teaching and 15 years of experience in kindergarten education, I understand the importance of providing children with meaningful and engaging toys. As a mother of four, ranging in age from 11 to 24, I have firsthand knowledge of what keeps kids entertained and helps them thrive.

At Charlie Horse Toys, we embrace an eco-conscious lifestyle. Sustainability is at the core of our values, and we strive to make a positive impact on the environment. That's why we carefully curate brands like Replay, which creates toys made from recycled milk cartons. We also offer a bulk refill station for cleaning products, reducing single-use plastic waste.
