Since 2009, Green Goat Boutique Toy Store has offered a beautiful and inspiring range of traditional and contemporary toys and gifts. Green Goat is owned and operated by a practising Early Childhood Teacher, Kirsty Morey. Kirsty draws on her own teaching experiences and knowledge of educational theory when sourcing products for Green Goat and considers how each one will enhance a childs' learning.
Kirsty loves designing beautiful environments for children which is why she has created the idea of ‘PlayScapes'. PlayScapes are ‘small world’ environments where children have the opportunity to use a range of ‘Loose Parts’ in their play. ‘Loose Parts’ is a term coined by Architect Simon Nicholson in the 1970’s which describes all open-ended materials that facilitate and empower children to experiment, discover, invent, create and imagine during play much more than standard toys and resources do which often have limited uses.
There are over twenty different themed PlayScape posters to choose from (eg. Fairy Theme, Pirate Theme etc) which set the backdrop for children's imaginative play using a range of Loose Parts available on the website. These Loose Parts can be found in the following website categories: ‘PlayScape Plants’, ‘PlayScape Animals’, PlayScape Decorations’ and ‘PlayScape Theme Props’.
To compliment the online store, Kirsty has also designed a Mobile Toy Store which tours around the region and many of these themed ‘PlayScapes' and ‘Loose Parts’ resources are on display in the store and available for purchase.
By including a range of wooden toys on her website, Kirsty also shows her love of quality traditional toys that continue to be enjoyed by children throughout the generations. Many of the wooden toys on the website are made with Sustainable Timbers which helps our environment.
The importance of sharing God’s Word is close to Kirsty’s heart as a Sunday School Teacher. The Christian products available on the website can serve as little reminders and inspiration for children in their daily walks with God.
