Inside you’ll find soft toys in all shapes and sizes, many variations of Puggles (such as a Fruggle, Puggle Polar and Gruggle), Gigalot possums, Flying Pigs, Flatapus and more!
The Lost Forests hosts parties and special workshops in its party rooms. We are invited to join a toy-making workshop with the head toymaker Bridie, who makes almost all of the toys you’ll see on the shelves!
The kids create their own magical creature for about an hour using similar techniques to what Bridie uses in real life.
Then they take turns to adopt their Puggle/creature officially as they take the pledge ‘not to turn it into Puggle Pie’ and catch it as it whizzes down the slide!
The Lost Forests also run storytelling sessions on the Melbourne Star. For $20 per child (adults free) there are pre-flight activities then a 30 minute trip in a Melbourne Star cabin with stories, games and songs, before you journey back to The Lost Forests toy store for a fairy feast!
You can also drop in at 2pm every Saturday for free story time.
