Toys with Roots was founded by Mpumi and Thabo Motsabi out of a passion to help African children develop self love through play! It was also an answer to the call of many parents who just could not find toys that represented the African child.

Our mission is to become the go to store for toys and other kiddie products that celebrate African children. We also believe that these toys, sourced from like minded and passionate suppliers, will help to foster an appreciation of diversity, understanding and friendship between children of different cultural backgrounds. We live in a diverse country and have much to celebrate.

Toys with Roots currently holds Ntombenhle dolls, Baby Thando, Lali, The A girls, Akiki dolls, Akiki books, a series of Zulu and Sotho children’s books and Phenduka reversible shoes & bib set for babies.


We offer affordable shipping from only R45, for local delivery (South Africa).
