Our story

We are a family owned and operated company who are passionate about enriching children’s play with high quality, durable and safe play tables and furniture that doesn’t impact negatively on the environment.

At the helm is Captain Max, a highly respected and skilled boat builder who runs a boat-building business.  In between boat building projects, Max designs our children’s furniture, utilising his vast experience of the boat building industry (and several years of fatherhood!) to ensure that our wooden play tables and children’s furniture can withstand whatever the New Zealand climate and Kiwi kids can throw at them.  Have a look at the beautiful boats Max builds on our website www.dinghy.co.nz

Max and our accomplished team transform the designs into prototypes which are thoroughly put through their paces before becoming part of our product range.

 

Our children’s furniture and playtables are in homes, Playcentres, daycare centres, pre-schools and primary schools across

New Zealand.
