Kids have an innate sense of play. It's how they express themselves and learn about the world around them, so it's important to provide them with the tools to be successful at play. Our unique educational toys have been carefully selected to encourage and support imaginative and active play, in the many forms that it takes: Creating & Building, Pretend Play, Exploring & Discovering, Indoor Active and Outdoor Fun.
The Goose and Moose.ca Test
The toys and play equipment we carry have to meet some important criteria to make it into the Goose and Moose.ca collection. We look for play products that are designed for self guided, imaginative and active play. No batteries, lengthy instructions or constant adult assistance. Just stuff that equips kids to freely and independently do what they do best: play! We also like toys that appeal to a wide age range and are gender neutral, to support sibling and group play. Anyone with more than one kid knows the importance of toys that bring family harmony! And we really like unique toys and items that you don't see in the big box stores.
Made in Canada and the USA
As a responsible Canadian company, we have included a selection of toys and playthings that are made close to home, either here in Canada, or in the USA. You can see these products on our Made in Canada and the USA page. There are some great local companies making some great stuff, and if it passes the Goose and Moose.ca test, you'll find it here!
The single most important thing about our toys is that they are fun. They are items that bring joy and a smile, while triggering the imagination, exercising the brain and invigorating the body.
