Modern Teaching Aids
If budget is a big consideration then you will want to know about Modern Teaching Aids Brendale. Don’t be deceived by the name because they also offer a huge range of toys in addition to all the teaching tools. We love their range of craft items and the bulk painting equipment you can buy. This is an outlet shop so pricing is always well below retail.

The Queensland Museum Shop, located in the Queensland Museum in South Bank gets better and better every single year. Their range of science related toys is inspiring and we have always found it hard to leave the museum without a small purchase. From dinosaurs to experiments and crystals and slime, there is something for every child!
