We think we are a bit different. We are a values driven, family business with amazing people working in our teams. We sell fun products but we work hard. So how do we describe all of this? Well we think our vision, mission, values and playground rules will help you understand more about us and our culture. Vision: Our vision is every childhood filled with wonder. Children are at the heart of what we do. This is our driving belief and what we all strive to achieve. The Playground: The Playground is who we are. It’s more than a physical presence - it’s the atmosphere we create. It is the umbrella value that brings everything together, it’s our secret ingredient... It is the sum total of the rules and the values and helps us remember we are serious about what we do but we always find time to have fun along the way. We are the Playground, it’s in our DNA. The Playground Rules: Here at The Entertainer our values have helped shape ten rules that we believe build on our heritage, reflect our current business and will help guide us and shape our future. These rules are at the heart of everything we do
