Modern Teaching Aids
If budget is a big consideration, then you will want to know about Modern Teaching Aids. 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.

If you’re after board games, puzzles and other educational and fun activities, then Presents of Mind is your one-stop shop! The toys here are designed to extend the imagination, as well as be inspiring, with a wide range of STEM sets too. They offer free delivery Brisbane-wide from their online store (minimum spend $99), and flat rate shipping across the rest of Australia, as well as free gift wrapping in store.

The Queensland Museum Shop
The Queensland Museum Shop, located in The Queensland Museum within the Cultural Centre at 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 and experiments, to crystals and slime, there is something for every child. On top of this, their range of indigenous art and other products, and botanical gifts make it a truly wonderful place to buy that special gift.
Located at The Queensland Museum, corner of Grey & Melbourne Streets, South Brisbane, and online.
Best Toy Shops in Brisbane – Online Stores
If you are looking for science related gifts, then you need to visit the Australian Geographic website today! Unfortunately, the physical stores have closed, but the same fantastic range of educational toys and activities. You can expect a huge range of science-based toys, from telescopes to slime experiments, as well as realistic soft toy replicas of Australian animals. What we love most about Australian Geographic is how many toys they offer that encourage outdoor play.
