About Us

Geppetto’s Workshop is a family of like-minded people who love puppets and toys. We seek genuine quality and genuine value in the puppets and toys we chose for our children … and for ourselves. We like to know the origin of our puppets and toys … who made it, who designed it, is it safe, how do you use it, for how long has it been loved, what stories can it tell? Our stores are filled with items chosen because they’re special and might be kept for generations. We look for puppets and toys that make you feel compelled to touch them and play. On occasions, we love to be silly, excited, and shamelessly emotional about what we offer because we’re passionate about what we do.

Our beautiful store sounds like a carnival and a playground at once, mixed with the sounds of Europe and childhood. Come visit us in Sassafras and delight in the variety and array of items sourced from all over the world. No matter how you find us … demand the real thing, expect to be moved, allow yourself to be surprised, enjoy the experience, and tell your friends! Puppets rock!

Geppetto's Workshop acknowledges the Wurundjeri People and other Kulin Nation tribes as the traditional owners of Corhanwarrabul, now commonly known as Mt Dandenong. We recognise their continuing connection to this land upon which we reside, and pay our respects to their elders, both past and present.
