The Covid-19 Pandemic & Kidzeco


At Kidzeco, the health, safety and well-being of every employee, volunteer, and customer is our utmost priority.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken pragmatic steps, and implemented robust measures across the board in order to ensure the ongoing welfare of everyone involved in the daily operations of our organisation, as well as those visiting our premises since re-opening after the initial stages of nationwide lock-down.

In accordance with both government and public health guidance, we have undergone many crucial changes both in store and behind the scenes.

From accepting donations during specific pre-advertised windows only, and implementing a strict quarantine regime for every single item that is received in store; to staggering the schedule of our staff and volunteers, we are continuing to do everything in our power to enhance the safety of our team and customers, and to mitigate the risk of infection.

We will continue to assess and review the risks presented to us and engage with employees, volunteers and customers, and make appropriate adjustments inline with the latest public health guidance when necessary.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our staff, visitors, and everyone across West Lothian, for their loyalty and support during these difficult times.

Festive Season Update

merry-christmas


We’d like to thank everyone who has donated to Kidzeco this last year. Your ongoing support is appreciated and we couldn’t do it without you! We’ve received so many great donations so far this festive season and hope you understand that we need a few days to clear the decks for the New Year.  Therefore, we won’t be able to accept donations from 25th December to 4th January while we work through all your great donations. However, we’ll be ready and waiting in the New Year, so we would be grateful if you held on to any of your donations until then.

All we ask of you is to enjoy the festivities and have a Merry Christmas!


We still have a 20% off everything sale going on in-store until the 24th December so check us out for your last minute Christmas shopping, grab a bargain and support your local community, all at the same time!

Recharge your holiday spirit at Kidzeco’s Soft Play

‘Tis the season to be stressed. Christmas time is always a magical time of year; the decorations, music, lights, and the general atmosphere are amazing. However, it’s also the most stressful time of year. Getting your last minute Christmas shopping done can be a bother, especially when you’ve got the wee ones to look after at the same time.

We set up our soft play at our Livingston store in June this year. So, this will be it’s first Christmas at Kidzeco. It’s an excellent opportunity for you to get your Christmas shopping done, recharge your batteries, and let your wee ones have a blast and tire themselves out.

The soft play is open from 10:00 – 16:00 from Monday to Saturday. Each sessions last 30 minutes and only costs £1 per child.  Please note that the age limit is 5 years old.

If you’re not sure on the location, how to get there, or just have a few questions – please check out our contact page.
