About Us


New Owner of PlayMerrily & CraftMerrily 01/01/2018


Welcome and thank you for visiting the site, my name is Lynne Gray, (Trading as PlayMerrily),  I have taken over the ownership and running of PlayMerrily & CraftMerrily in their entirety from 1/1/2018. Having worked for Max and Merry for around 3 years I am very pleased and proud to be taking over. Customers familiar with Playmerrily and Craftmerrily will see little change, apart from the name. I will keep to the same traditional Toys and Crafts for sale, as well as some adding new products.

I will be delighted to help you with any issue or requirement you may have; drop me a line by email or give me a call on 01733 396585. The office is staffed between 9-1pm Monday to Friday and emails will often be answered over the weekend if you need help choosing a product. You can email me at sales@playmerrily.co.uk or via our contact page.

Important Announcement 18/12/2017

After 14 happy years of trading, Max and I have decided to hang up our retail boots at close of trade on Tuesday 19th December at 12pm. We are delighted to say that Lynne, who has worked for us for around 3 years, is continuing the names of PlayMerrily and CraftMerrily and will take over as the owner of our two websites from the beginning of January. The businesses will continue to sell the same products with the same core values of personal service and products that are truly loved by the owner as they always have.

Between Tuesday 19th December and January 2nd, we will be transferring the business over into Lynne's new name of "Lynne Gray, Trading As PlayMerrily" and she will open for business on the 2nd. We anticipate there will be no interruption to service during this time and we know that Lynne will continue to cherish our customers as we always have - indeed, the job of cherishing them has fallen almost entirely to Lynne since April 2016, when Max and Merry both moved on to other projects.

Following the winding up of our company Merrily Toys & Crafts Ltd, we intend to cease trading as retailers entirely and the entity that is our Limited Company is NOT being transferred to Lynne, who will commence her ownership as a sole trader. HOWEVER, we have an agreement in place that we will co-operatively and sympathetically manage any refunds, returns or replacements of items bought from our Limited Company so that Lynne does not have to fund these from her new business and so that all customers will be correctly and carefully looked after. Lynne will manage these on our behalf and all correspondence regarding such matters can be directed to the shop email, telephone and operating address as normal.

Max and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the innumerable customers who have supported us over the years and wish Lynne the very best as the new 'mum' of the Merrily name. We sincerely hope that you will continue to support her as you have supported us.

Thank you,

Merry & Max
