Family Entertainment from Imagine If

News6 May 2020

The cooler weather and rainy days are here, which means new ideas are needed for indoor activities for the whole family (especially when still self isolating!).

We spoke with Jackie, from Imagine If and she provided us with some new entertainment ideas during this time.

Locally owned and operated, Imagine If is Burnside Village’s toy store. They specialise in educational activities as well as entertainment for the whole family.


Jackie explains that puzzles no doubt have been one of their most popular items during the COVID-19 isolation period, but they too are perfect for rainy days and family bonding. Imagine If have the biggest range of puzzles – so much so that they have a whole wall dedicated to them! “Puzzles are for all ages! For adults we have scenic landscapes, architecture and puzzles for the Disney fans, including a 40,320 piece Disney puzzle – the largest Disney puzzle in the world! For children, our Djeco observation puzzles involve completing the jigsaw and then finding a list of images within the puzzle. We love the World Animals puzzle! Finally, for toddlers, our Melissa & Doug wooden puzzles are great for small children and they even make sounds when you put the correct piece in.”

Gravitrax Marble Run

Hours go by very quickly when doing a puzzle, but Jackie suggested that, “our number one product to keep all ages entertained would be the Gravitrax Marble Run which is an interactive track system where you design and build your own race tracks and experiment with gravity, magnetism and kinetics to propel your ball to the finish.” To us, this sounds like not only fun but learning too!

Board & Card Games

If you have played too many games of Monopoly or Uno, Imagine If stock some of the most unique board and card games we have seen (as well as the trusted favourites)! The staff at Imagine If, shared their top three unique board and card games, being: ‘Genius Square’, ‘Sushi Go Party’ and the card game ‘Taco, Cat, Goat, Cheese, Pizza’.

Outdoor games

For when the sun does poke out there is Finska. “We can guarantee that you will enjoy this well loved, classic outdoor game!”

Whether you are looking for family indoor entertainment or for a unique toy or gift, Jackie and the team at Imagine If in the Vine Mall can point you in the right direction.
