Fun and Party Search Made Easy by Treasure Island Toys

I am sure a lot of parents have already heard of Treasure Island Toys which has been a popular online store in the UK since 2008, but did you know that in November 2011 they introduced a fantastic new service which they like to call a ‘Fun and Party Search Engine’? Along with finding great toys, furniture and presents on the site you can now arrange parties and days out for the kids, by finding children’s entertainers, party venues, kids attractions, evening classes, workshops and much, much more - sounds great doesn't it?

To search for these "fun and party" activities all you have to do is enter your postcode or place name which then returns a whole range of child friendly activities and more which are in their local area.  You also have the ability to filter your search by using hundreds of different keywords ranging from Ballet, Balloon Modelling and Paintball, right through to Peddle Boats, African Drumming, Theatres and everything inbetween. I have tested the website and I must say I was impressed with how quick it is, it also lets you set up a ‘Favourites’ lists, has videos of entertainers, date ranges for events, reviews and social networking (Facebook/Twitter/Google+) integration, you can even filter by activities that are suitable for when it is raining amongst other features.

Enter place or postcode and distance to return results which can be filtered
The website is also what is known as a ‘wiki’ site, meaning that anyone can add a listing to the website for free, quickly and easily by themselves.  So if you are an entertainer or are a parent that knows of any great kids’ attractions and local events in your local area, you have the ability to add them in seconds and let other parents benefit from your knowledge.

I love the idea of this website as it brings together so much fantastic information that parents can find quickly and easily which is such a great time saver. There are already thousands of listings on the website with more being added each day so I really do believe that Treasure Island is a great resource for parents to go to when in need for some great ideas to keep the kids entertained.
