My wife and I spent 2 years in NZ (we moved home to Australia last year), which coincided with the birth of our daughter. We brought back all her nursery furniture (Touchwood Sleigh cot, change table, chest of drawers and bookcase) and are glad we did. It is much nicer than anything we have since found locally. In particular, the drop-side mechanism in the cot, is streets ahead of anything else over here. We had looked at cots in NZ with a one-handed mechanism, but were concerned that a child holding the bars and shaking the side, could potentially lift and squeeze the mechanism in the exact manner required to drop the side. It was a surprise to see every cot in Australia fitted with these one-handed mechanisms.
With the recent birth of our son, we are now looking for a second cot. We have certainly spread the word, and will continue to do so.
I love your cots – how they still have the tracking system with the clips? on the drop down sides – all these newer cots out at all the baby stores I have been going to and looking at cots have this horrible lift side up and push with your weight and legs system going on and half of them just dont work properly or I cant get them to go down. Just wanted to say thanks for still have this system on your cots to date!!

I’ve researched every single type of cot generally available in NZ and your use of metal rather than plastic components is the main reason why we’re going for your brand over others.
In addition, the other thing we liked about your cots is the solid look to the design, which many of the cots on the market don’t share. A couple of other models do share this solid look, but ruin it with plastic bit
An outstanding NZ-produced product that quite frankly, leaves the imported rubbish in its wake! Buy Wellington-made Auckland!! The workmanship is stunning and delivery straightforward. I would recommend anyone looking at cheap inferior quality imports to forget it – Buy Touchwood!

We absolutely love our Touchwood cot! I always recommend Touchwood cots to friends and family as it has lasted the distance with us for over TEN years, FOUR babies and TWO countries. We took it with us when we moved to the Cook Islands and brought it back again to NZ nine years later. It is very special to us in that all our children have used it and with its functionality we can reuse again after baby no 4 grows out of it as a sturdy chair. Thank you so much Touchwood for this lasting memory of our children and our family!

When my wife Laurie and I discovered we were expecting our first child we started the hunt for the perfect cot. We looked around and the best by far was Touchwood. We loved the fact it was a New Zealand built product and had the ability to convert from a cot through to a bed and finally a couch so we knew that when our boy Lachlan arrived he would have “the best cot in NZ!!!”. The service from the entire Touchwood crew was exceptional. I would not have any other cot and now our sister Kate has decided to purchase a Touchwood cot as she has seen how good our cot is and how well Lachie sleeps……well most nights!! So a massive Thank You to Touchwood New Zealand.

We bought our Touchwood solid Rimu Villa cot in 2000 for our first child and now nine years, and two more children later, it’s still going strong! The cot has been a treasured piece of furniture, both as a cot, first bed and couch, and despite its age, it still looks wonderful (apart from a few teeth marks here and there from hungry child number three!)
We found the cot very easy to use and also simple to put up and take down when moving house or storing it between babies.
The staff at Touchwood have also been a pleasure to deal with – when we noticed a freak split in a cot bar, a new side was delivered straight away without any hassle.
Our Touchwood cot was definately a worthwhile investment and we will be sad to see it go now that our last ‘baby’ is about to move into a bed

I would like to say how impressed I am by the durability of the furniture you produce. We have two very active boys, both of whom sleep in touchwood cots/beds, as do we. Despite the rough treatment that the beds get at times, they still look as good as the day we bought them.
The two gorgeous beds are just so beautiful. We didn’t unwrap them until a couple of weeks ago when we moved. My daughter just adores it and so do I. I am so impressed with the bed. I am so glad I decided on the cottage style and the duvet end. There were so many amazing options and it wasn’t until it was set up that I knew I had made the right decision.
You must be so proud of your products. It looks fantastic. Can’t wait until my 8 month old is ready for her one so we can set it up too.
I will be recommending Touchwood to all my friends.
Really nice & friendly staff who went out of their way to assist me. Thanks for the beautiful high quality cot – my baby will love this!!!!
Bed’s are fantastic and we are so glad we bought Touchwood beds that will go the distance. They look superb, lighten and make the children’s rooms look bigger. We have three happy children, two happy parents and that makes one happy family!
I have the Chateau Cot and Change Table and both were purchased 11 years ago … and across two families they are now going into the 5th child. The pieces are strong, stable and very functional and unlike many other cots these are made to a very high standard. In addition to this I think they are also very attractive pieces of furniture.
My wife and I bought a new Touchwood Chateau cot in satin white with panelled ends from one of your stockists. We had been shopping round for a while, before deciding on a Touchwood, which seemed to us both attractive and immensely sturdy and well made. This is for our first child; so we hope and expect to get many years’ good use out of it

We brought our sleigh cot about 7 years ago. It has been absolutely great for all our three children. Not one of them ever climbed out of the cot!!!! We have had lots of peaceful nights while the baby de jour slept soundly!
Last year we bought a Scotch Chest and we’ve been delighted with it – so delighted in fact that we’re keen to get one of your cots for our baby, which is due in a few months
Thanks again for all your help. It’s really nice having such friendly people to deal with.
I will still be purchasing one of your gorgeous cots – I love them, and they are so far superior to anything else I have seen
They are way more stylish and practical than other highchairs we’ve seen so would love to get one
Easy communication and very helpful, frame delivered on exact day as we requested to suit house moving, one could not ask for more! Will definitely shop again! Thanks very much.

My cot is a wonderful piece of furniture – my sister almost wanted a baby just so she could use it. I recommend your product to any friend who asks what cot we used, and now I can add that your after sales service is just as good.
I am in love with your furniture & in fact my sons room is all Touchwood.
