Dream Job for Four Lucky Kiwi Kids

6 August 2014

Dream Job for Four Lucky Kiwi Kids

Every child dreams of testing toys for a job and thanks to The Warehouse, this has become a reality for four lucky Kiwi kids.

As part of its annual July Toy Sale, which this year celebrated its tenth anniversary, The Warehouse searched for four children to become their official Toy Testers for 12 months.

After receiving hundreds of entries from kids across the country, the judges chose Ella Garlick (6) from Whangaparaoa, Samuel Collins (7) from Rotorua, Chaz Stensness (6) from Tauranga and Evie MacDonald (9) from Christchurch to take on the official Toy Tester role.

The Warehouse General Manager of Marketing Lorraine Breheny said she was amazed with the high calibre of video entries.

“To enter, kids had to choose some of their favourite toys and review them - saying exactly what they like and what they think could be improved. How excited they got about their toys is wonderful to see and it was clear they had a lot of fun putting their video entries together.

“We’re really excited about working with Ella, Samuel, Chaz and Evie and look forward to hearing their thoughts about some of the amazing toys and games we’ll have available over the coming year,” Ms Breheny said.

Each month the Toy Testers receive up to $200 of brand new toys as well as $8,000 cash for their family. Their job description involves playing, assessing and rating the toys they receive. This feedback is then passed on to The Warehouse’s toy buying team – a very important job, indeed!

The competition was open to children aged between five and 10 years. To enter, applicants had to upload a video explaining why they would make a great Toy Tester and also have spent $30 or more on toys in-store or online during the Toy Sale (Saturday 28th June – Tuesday 15th July).
