Can you imagine a Kiwi dad, making and selling cots from his garage? This was Touchwood owner Derek, some years ago. A craftsman, he decided to build cots originally for his own children to avoid injuries.
The cots proved popular, leading to more and more being made for friends and family. Eventually a factory was opened, and the rest, they say, is history.
At Touchwood, the focus is on ensuring babies and toddlers have a safe sleep space. This is their passion, and it comes through in the quality of the cots.
You sleep easier knowing your child is sleeping safely as Touchwood cots exceed the current NZ standard (AS/NZ 2171). Touchwood even guarantee their cots for 5 years for workmanship.
You'll also feel excited, as a Touchwood nursery is a beautifully finished nursery, with various design and colour options available for Touchwood cots and complementary furniture.
It's super easy getting your baby in and out of the cot, with the double drop side. This means less awkward lifting, especially while holding a sleeping little one (we know how difficult it can be to get them asleep in the first place- the last thing you need is for them to wake up mid ninja-cot-transfer).
The strength of a Touchwood means they are more durable. You don't have to worry about your toddler breaking the cot by jumping up and down, or be concerned about mummy needing to slide in to provide some comfort.
You get your money's worth from this cot, as it can be transformed from a bassinet, to a deep safe cot, to a child's first bed and finally into a 2-seater sofa.
There are a number of add-ons available, like a cot drawer or a bassinet insert.

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.
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 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 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.
