About Us

Blackboard Jungle was the creation of long-time educator Debbie Clifford. What started as an idea to create educational resources for teachers has grown into a bespoke toy store beloved by children of all ages from around not only Hawke’s Bay but, all around New Zealand!


At Blackboard Jungle we excite and educate curious minds from birth to adults. We have a huge range of fun and educational products to get children of all ages excited about discovery and learning.


Located on Donnelly Street, Havelock North you will find Deb, Donna (and any family roped into helping) ready to help you find the perfect gift for your loved ones. We strive to give our customers and fun and positive experience that exceed their expectations.
