Since 1997, Kidz-a-Peal has built up a strong reputation with it’s customers and schools throughout the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town and further afield.
I, Jenny Bedwell (Owner), started in the toy industry in 1985. I began my adventure as a housewife, with 3 children, selling Educational Toys on a party plan basis. After my success in building up a name for myself I expanded to selling Educational Toys from my garage at home, but it was always my dream to open my very own Toy store. So in 1993 a partner and I opened ” The Toy Train” in Meadowridge which was a small but successful little store. However in 1995, I had a 4th child and decided to sell my share of The Toy Train to become a full-time mom. My passion for Toys brought me back into the industry in 1997 when a new partner and I started up Kidz-a-Peal. Kidz-a-Peal began being half the size it is today but due to our success we soon needed more space so when the store next door became vacant we expanded into an Educational Toy store as well as an Arts and Crafts store. In 2003 I became sole owner of Kidz-a-Peal and have continued to grow and build my reputation within the community, locally and nationally.
Kidz-a-Peal has grown through friendliness and service towards all our customers, schools and corporate clients.
