About Fun Ho! Toys

Fun Ho! Toys in Taranaki, New Zealand

Fun Ho! Toys have a special place in New Zealand History, a real Kiwi icon, tough, durable and virtually indestructible.

The kings of the sandpit from the 1940s and still today there is nothing to rival them as the premiere sandpit toy.

The Fun Ho! Story started in 1935 when Jack Underwood began making toys in the basement of his home as a hobby.

The Fun Ho! workshop has seen an increasing demand for reproduction Fun Ho! toys, which are cast at the museum.

These handmade models are produced using the original moulding plates and boxes.
