TOCK’s NZ Toilet Roll Lockdown Competition

We know people couldn’t resist buying toilet rolls and we know families are looking for fun activities for their children during lockdown. So TOCK has a brilliant idea… Why not get the children to see what creations they can make with those toilet rolls and any other re-usable items from your bubble. Please see how to enter below.

TOCK is a loveable time travelling robot on a mission to create a brighter future for our tamariki.

TOCK has been visiting thousands of children in the classroom and we have created songs, games, activities, stories and competitions and so much more, just because we are passionate about keeping our planet amazing and keeping life fun. Please enjoy our website whilst you are here and tell others about us.

We intentionally avoid google ads and linking to other sites as we want to keep things safe and focussed for children. is created by a NZ husband and wife. We make all of the crafts in our own front room, write and record the songs ourselves, illustrate and create TOCK adventures from our own home. We are not a commercial money making organisation but we are looking for support to keep TOCK alive. So if you feel you can help, please get in touch via our contact page.
