About us

Our company

Pops Toys is a Toy Shop in Benoni at the Northmead Square shopping centre. With 13 years experience in the retail industry, there's not much we don't know about toys.

We're experts in what kids love, and our winning combination of fair prices and excellent customer service means we're a favourite with moms and dads too.

Our Store is run by a team of friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff who understand what children of all ages wish for and are always happy to give help and advice whether online, over the phone or in our store. We aim to give everyone, whatever their age, the best service possible and welcome feedback from our customers on all aspects of their shopping experience.

We love demonstrating our favourite toys and encourage everyone to come and play whether it’s testing a new science kit, learning to juggle or coming to build on our LEGO® build off competitions.

With the launch of our new website, Pops Toys is now dedicated to bringing the values of a traditional toyshop to the virtual world, making it easier than ever to find that special gift! 

Our Team

Husband and wife Natalie and Alex run the shop with the help of their assistants Chris & Blanche.

At Christmas the team grows with all our Happy Christmas Helpers : wrapping gifts, demonstrating exciting new products and assisting you with your shopping experience.

Our Values

Charity – Every year Pops Toys has done “Wrapping For Charity” we ask for no specific amount for a gift to be wrapped just what you are willing to donate.

We also put our “Toys For Charity” chimney bin outside our shop and encourage our community to donate toys old or new for the underprivileged children at Christmas. Our donations are given to St Patricks Catholic Church. Please help us give even more this year!

Every year we receive over R5000.00 worth of donations for wrapping and this is then given to our many charities including:

1. Rosmarys Haven
2. Cosmos Fraile Care Home For The Aged
3. Frema House
4. Barcelona Shoe Box Collection

Sunday Trading – We are Open From 9am to 1pm. Our team works extremely hard all week. So Sunday is a day to relax, spending time with friends and family, that’s why we open half day.

Ethics - We only sell toys we believe have real play value, represent good value for money and are suitable for the children they're made for.

Recycling - We care about the environment and we're doing our bit to cut down on unnecessary waste. Let us make a better tomorrow for our children. Let’s Recycle!
