About Us

Our Owner

Celiane, occupational therapist and owner of Growth toys

Growth Toys was founded by Celiané van der Westhuizen, a paediatric occupational therapist from Parys (Free State).  She has a passion for working and playing with children.  This is where her love for fun and learning started.  She found that a great majority of parents were interested in the toys and games used when giving therapy to their children.  This is how Growth Toys was born.

Our Roots

Growth Toys started out as a small educational toy shop in an occupational therapy practice.  It has since grown into market exhibitions and an online store.

Our Selection Criteria

All Growth Toys products are carefully selected by a qualified occupational therapist.  Products are selected based on educational contributions or merely to provide FUN to your child's play (which is just as important as educational growth).
