About us

PAPOOSE Play Furniture is the brain child of Judi from Kee Wee Tubarama. Disappointed after constantly seeing so many plastic toys ending up in landfills, she decided to introduce another product line to their current business.

With the motivation and passion for providing high quality handmade products using New Zealand sustainable timbers, so began the journey of Papoose.

Today we bring you quality hand made toys, that would stand the test of time, to be handed down through generations with pride.

Every product is also carefully constructed for safety, durability and affordability with added focus to build toys that are more environmentally friendly.

The Papoose range
on display at a recent craft market.

So began the focus to develop a range of brightly coloured play furniture that would provide children with enjoyment as they learn and share with others, and give parents the knowledge that their purchase would endure.
Children love to imagine and communicate and share with others; our play furniture gives them that opportunity. These can be made to suit one or more children and even Mum and Dad can join in.
PAPOOSE Play Furniture is accessible through our website to order or to enquire about but you can also find us at Craft Markets and A & P Shows for those who prefer the personal contact and service.
