About Us

Hello and welcome to Panda Post's Online Store!

My name is Nina Hampton and I have been a teacher of 3 to 9 year olds for 14 years. The last 7 of which I have been teaching 5 to 6 year olds. I have always had a passion for making learning fun and helping children reach their potential through play-based activities.

But since becoming a parent 2 and a half years ago, I have developed a real passion for the vitally important role parents play in their child's development. I've realised more and more that parents are often overwhelmed with where to even start doing educational activities with their children, or how to help their children's caregivers do more play-based activities.

My online store currently stocks carefully curated ACTIVITY BOXES, TRAVEL PACKS for "on-the-go" activities and a beautiful selection of handpicked children's BOOKS. I'm passionate about low-waste toys so I am committed to start using as much wood and as little plastic in our products as possible! All our products can either be collected from my home in Claremont, Cape Town or delivered to your door!

Please sign up to my newsletter to stay up to date with my news and new services and products.

***PLEASE NOTE OUR ONLINE STORE WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL 14th JANUARY 2019*** I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with my family :)

I also have lots of exciting new projects planned for 2019, when I will be stopping teaching to run Panda Post full time in the mornings and spend the afternoons with my own child. Look out for locally made educational wooden toys and a small selection of new imported books.

In 2019 I am joining forces with an Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist and Child Psychologist to bring you EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS for nannies, launching in March 2019.

With Panda Post I want to empower you, as parents, to make learning through play easy and fun! I want to help you with the knowledge and resources to reduce screen time and increase play time. I want to walk this parenting journey with you and see our children LEARN...PLAY and GROW!
