Our Story

Green Whizz
Kes Reid | Founder of Whizz Kids & Joe

Hi, I’m Kes. As a parent, teacher, sports scientist and volunteer sports event organiser, we need to get our kids moving!

With the increased use of technology, children are entering primary school education without the fundamental motor skills necessary for healthy brain development.

This can lead to them having difficulty reading or writing across a page, gripping a pen or pencil, sitting upright at a desk or having the endurance to last a whole day at school.

I’m passionate about sourcing high quality products that develop co-ordination, balance, and improve sensory processing. Not to mention encouraging them outdoors and building a sense of independence. This gives your child the brain boost they need.

THE PERFECT COMBINATION FOR ANY ADVENTURES

Testimonials

Green Whizz
Bought my son a Wishbone bike from Whizz Kids Toys. Love the quality products will outlast all the other bikes we bought my first son. Wish we found this product earlier and it’s so great to be able to demo a bike so we could ‘try before we buy’.
LINDA SMITHParent of Keyan and Logan

Couldn’t be more delighted with our first Whizz Kids Toys purchase. The 3 in 1 bike is so well made, robust yet great to look at. As first time grandparents we think we’ve scored a few brownie points with our little one. Thank you so much for launching this range of toys to help our next generation develop healthy play habits and stronger motor skills.
