Professor Plums Store Front

We pride ourselves on providing well designed, thoughtful and surprising objects that will make you laugh, raise your eyebrows, enlighten you, or better yet spark an idea!
So why do we do what we do? Because we are dedicated to providing a fun, immersive environment where people of all ages and types can discover and learn!
Professor Plums lab was born in May of 2003, with our first store opening in June. Since then we have shared our discoveries in this small, locally loved shop located in the leafy green North Sydney suburb of Crows Nest. To this day you can still visit the original store experience and say hi to our colourful and friendly team.
We have been honoured to see our name dropped in features on the ABC with Dr. Karl, SBS and Double Helix Magazine.
Over the bridge and far away, Professor Plums Online occupies a slab on a sunny road in Sydney’s Kingsgrove neighbourhood. Here you’ll find a close knit team engaging in light sabre battles, pruning our Cactus Ferdinand… oh and carefully packing and shipping each and every Professor Plums order with the utmost of care. As a complete team we pride ourselves on making every effort to get your orders out post haste and looking extra special. We also love the Earth meaning that all of our packing materials and business practices are sustainable and ethical.
Together our team scour the globe and local market to bring our customers the very best and hard to find in toys and gift ware.
