Finding and maintaining health and balance in life is a challenge, never mind doing the same for your children and pets, but when you succeed the pay offs are huge.

You have the power to make positive decisions which affect your children’s development, be it social, emotional, cognitive, physical or creative, and we are here to help.

We pride ourselves in our unique & keepsake products (handcrafted, eco-friendly and natural heirlooms). We always offer exceptional personalised customer service.

We hope you will grow to love our web store as much as we do and that you will find everything you might need and more as a parent.

Play is a natural form of self-expression, a medium for experimentation, communication and learning. Through independent play a child can make sense of feelings, frustrations and new experiences. Play can be joyful and care free but also serious work. Play can connect a child with his inner self, help families share and deepen friendships. Play can provide a way to express deep feelings, conflict, hopes and fears. It taps into the natural self-healing capacity of the child. Independent play is vital to every child’s social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative development. It helps make learning concrete for all children and young people including those for whom verbal communication may be difficult.” Play-therapist


Our mission

Our role is not only to alleviate the stress working parents might have, but also to help bridge that gap for stay-at-home moms or dads after the baby starts to crawl by offering reliable and customized solutions to help ease the frustration at times you just need an extra hand.

Our vision

We live to collaborate, to create changes in education and childcare. We live to make value, to share and spread our passion. We live to enrich lives and to better communication and times shared between parents and children.

Our belief

We love intuitive applications and products. Therefore we create great products to encourage independent learning and intuitive play. To produce great work, you only need to be good at one thing, and to love it. We make your life that much easier.

Our promise

As customers ourselves to many vendors, it is those vendors that make us feel like our business is of paramount importance to them that keeps us coming back. Quite simply our main promise is that each customer will NOT be just another customer. Collectively it is every client and every employee that helps to make Shop Playpens a growing and successful business. Most importantly we understand that our existence is truly dependent on both our employees and clients. It is because of this that Shop Playpens guarantees a one on one experience for each and every client!!!

f9ba40_46cbe18729e74337a93b00df2672dc27As a 26 year old qualified Montessori directress, Corleen started her business in 2012 by applying all safety and valuable aspects needed by parents and owners to the products her company currently distributes. By being creative and having an absolute passion for the safety and well being of children and pets, this was a challenge to find affordable and child friendly products but proved to be a huge success once the products were introduced to the South African market.

Corleen’s talents also include the gift of understanding the young child’s mind, and to integrate her love for the little ones with her work. She is also an avid cat lover, and has two felines (Trixie and Nushka) who rule her!
