New Zealand’s largest online toy store, iQ Toys (www.iqtoys.co.nz) has just notched up its 25,000th online customer. Director, Shane Loomb says "this is a marvelous achievement and particularly nice that it has come in time for our 10th anniversary early next year".

iQ Toys now stocks well over 1,000 toys and 200 brands and says Shane, boasts a range that rivals or surpasses that of most local toy stores. "This coupled with competitive prices and free delivery to anywhere in New Zealand for orders over $150 is a key reason more and more New Zealander's are choosing to shop online at iQ Toys".

The iQ Toys website has a few other innovative features to make toy shopping more convenient and improve the sites "stickability". There is a wishlist facility where a webpage of items "wished for" can be created and then emailed to friends and family around the world, a birthday reminder service which sends automatic email reminders with gift selections and for those stuck for ideas on what to get, age appropriate buying guides.

Shanes' picks for the most popular toys this year include Roboraptor, Bratz dolls and Airzookas!
