Toys

A Day in the Life of a Kmart Toy Tester. Enter to WIN!

How do you find out which toys kids are going to go absolutely ga-ga over?  You gather a bunch of children in a room with a bunch of toys – that’s how.

And that’s what Kmart just did, inviting Mum Central to a special event that combines three of our very favourite things – Kmart, toys and kids! What’s not to love?!

mum central

Earlier this month, Kmart invited children from around Australia to come to Melbourne for the day and put its new toy range through its paces. From wooden toys to cuddly softies, from craft kits to building blocks, no toy was left untouched. Or unplayed with.

Putting the fun into play

We at Mum Central are already suckers for the Kmart toy range.  In fact, we recently hand-picked our own faves from the Kmart toy aisles to show you. The toys are educational, affordable and durable – win win win!

My six-year-old son, Alex, feels pretty much the same way about Kmart’s toy collection.  So you can imagine his excitement to be one of the lucky kiddies invited to the toy test party.

mum central

We were both grinning ear to ear when we arrived at Chadstone Shopping Centre to discover table upon table of toys. They had every aisle covered -modelling dough, colouring in, craft kits, puppets, soft toys, toy kitchens, dolls houses, wooden toy sets and dress up costumes.

PLUS, they gave all the kids official “toy tester” lab coats, which Alex thought was the coolest thing ever. He’s officially changed his career occupation of choice from a police officer to a Kmart toy tester.

It’s Kmart toy testing time!

So which toys made the grade, according to my son?

mum central

For Alex, it was all about the wooden toys collection. He’s the king of imaginative play, and it didn’t take long before he nestled into the toy cash register ($19) and shop set.

I have to say I love that Alex is a fan of wooden toys. I was too, and still am. They are great for setting their imagination on fire and of course, building and improving on their dexterity. Plus, you can’t really get past that whole nostalgic element attached to them.

Pretty soon we were whisked away to play shopkeepers. I am not too sure about Alex’s suggested $1 million price tag for the wooden school bus ($15) though?! Alex clearly didn’t want to let it go for cheap. In fact, he didn’t want to let it go at all.

mum central

Luckily he didn’t have to. Alex was invited to choose his favourite toy to take home and, of course, he chose the wooden school bus. (Top pick, Alex!) It comes with its own wooden crew, but Alex tells us his Spiderman and Batman toys aren’t shy about hitching a ride.

Going above and beyond, in the name of toys

Toys aside, the best thing about the whole experience was watching the team at Kmart interact with the kids. It showed they truly care about what children want and what toys our little ones want to see on the shelves (and in their toy boxes at home).

mum central

After getting this behind-the-toy-shelf experience, it makes perfect sense why Kmart is an industry leader in the toy category and why they continue to surprise up with their innovative toy range.

We can’t wait to see what they come up with next! And I’m sure our kids can’t either. Want more Kmart love? Then don’t miss our article about brilliant Kmart hacks to make mum life easier.

    Get the picnic blanket out because after those “cookies are cooked”, it will be munch and crunch time.!

    Mr 5 year old with the biggest imagination, would not have known where to start with all those awesome toys. He would be a ball of excitement going from one table to another, playing, imagining and I’m sure wishing so hard he could have them all. The wooden toy bus would be a huge hit as he would be able to let his amazing little mind run wild with all that he could do with it.

    My children would have loved it all! My daughter would have especially loved the play dough, kitchen and the threading animals. My son would have loved anything with wheels, so the bus would be a winner for him!!

    All of my three youngest girls would love to try out the school bus! Not only can their imagination be used for conversations with the little wooden crew, and there are plenty of characters so they can play together, what do they talk about? where is the school and what class are they in? But also I have fallen into the gender stereotype as a mum (which is ridiculous when you think about it!) and we don’t have any car toys in the house! Something I need to work on. ASAP!

    I am not sure whether my son’s head would explode…the very thought of getting to spend $100 in Kmart on toys would test that theory. He would most studiously walk the whole toys section scrutinising all before him. This process would take about 3 hours before he would choose his bounty. I would most definitely need a coffee afterwards…..

    Definitely the wooden toys!! The school bus, the cash register, anything wooden, they promote imaginative play which is very important for a child’s development. They are very robust, don’t need a constant supply of batteries and usually don’t fall apart! I have a new Great Nephew, Charlie and he will be receiving wooden toys for his Birthdays and Xmas’s just like my Son did too!

    I have a 12 and 2 year old girls. Even though the age difference they love playing kitchen, tea parties and restaurants. We have a wooden kitchen bought 10yrs ago from Kmart. They love playing with it and the wooden food. My 2yr old absolutely loves the wooden food you can cut! Brilliant idea Kmart and sooo reasonably priced! At the moment my eldest also loves playing with the stuffed food from Kmart, we have a donut, ice cream and French fries! My son (9) still loves playing with anything with wheels. The bus would of been a hit. He also loves all the science kits that Kmart has brought out. The Skylab is already on his Santa list! The $100 would definitely help for Christmas.

    Hands down the play dough. My 2 kids (10 and 5 years) love Play Dough. K Mart offer 2 different brands of Play Dough, the original and the best Play Doh brand and when i was in my local K Mart store last month i noticed a significantly cheaper brand of play dough. Great! Or so i thought. Because of it’s ridiculously cheaper price i bought a tub of each colour. Big mistake. As soon as my children got their hands on it and tried to roll, pat, mould and squish this ‘other brand’ play dough, their faces were full of disappointment. It was dry and just crumbled away. They may not be very old and may not know very much yet but what they do know is their Play Dough. Heck, they are play dough connoisseurs. They were not impressed.

    Both my 5 yr old and my 2yr old boys would probably go for the arts and craft. They both love being their own kind of artist and y eldest loves creating, inventing and building new things. My youngest would probably also go for the wooden toys (kitchen and cash register) he loves playing cafe and cooking me things.

    My 7 year old is a budding entrepreneur. Last Christmas he started a business ‘manufacturing’ and selling his own “high quality, hand made” Christmas decorations. He wrote out a business plan, made prototypes, even tested his market and ultimately made enough profit to buy Christmas presents for all his family and friends!

    Throughout this year, he’s been experimenting with new products for this Christmas, so I’m quite sure that if he were lucky enough to be a K Mart toy tester, he’d be making a beeline for the fantastic arts and crafts section to continue his ‘research’ with a much better variety of choices than he has at home!
