Where it all began . . .

Founded in 1999, Child Friendly Solutions was conceived after many frustrating hours trying to shop with small children. There didn't seem to be anything available to retailers to help them look after customers with small children safely, and keep them in the store.

The Child Friendly Solutions product offering has been expanded to include customised and fully branded play solutions for retail stores. The team also offers a Play Area Consultancy service to assist retailers, shop fitters and architects with in-store play solutions, particularly for smaller or more challenging retail fit-outs.

So we came up with these safe, hygienic, inexpensive Play Panels, specifically designed for retail and commercial environments.

Since its inception, Child Friendly Solutions has grown substantially and now exports to countries including NZ, UK and USA. Clients include Westpac, Toyota, Esprit and Westfield just to name a few.
