About us


Real Toys and Unreal Parties is owned and run by a local Ashburton family with a varied background in the toy industry and many years experience working for both retail and wholesale companies.

Real Toys begun trading in February 2009 and soon after renovated upstairs to turn the rooms  into an exciting party venue where kids could have fun and let their imagination run wild.

We wanted to provide a new and exciting children’s birthday party venue offering great party packages at reasonable prices. Our focus is also on offering more "traditional" themed birthday parties where kids dress up as their favourite character and have heaps of fun dancing and playing games with their friends.

After some time and experience the concept has evolved into the "all inclusive" package ensuring parents can sit back and enjoy their childs party without the preparation or clean up. Could there be a better way to spend a Birthday? With an extensive range in the shop downstairs, you can choose a Birthday gift and have it gift wrapped (complimentary service) on your way to the party. It's almost too easy!
