Whirligig continues to expand by opening a fourth shop

Published on: 22nd June 2017

The creative toy shop opens its fourth shop in in Canterbury on 1st July 2017.

Whirligig specialises in things to make and do, creative and memorable toys that get children actively involved. Whirligig was founded in 2012, and the Canterbury shop joins others in Brighton, Chichester, and Tunbridge Wells. The rapid growth of the company has been due to the excellent reception that the shops have received from the local customers.

Peter Allinson, company founder, commented: “Canterbury is an exciting new area of growth for us. Located right next to the iconic cathedral, we are looking forward to introducing the city and its visitors to our fantastic range of toys and games.”

Whirligig opens on 1st July 2017 at 22 Sun Street, Canterbury. There will be a launch party on Friday 30th June attended by Councillor Colin Spooner, the Sheriff of Canterbury. Every child visiting the shop on the opening day will receive a free toy.
