Welcome to Clowns Hobbies, Cape Town’s Premier Hobby Shop.

The Clowns Hobbies way is built on trust, and reinforced with integrity. We have a strong motto of not selling anything to our customers that we would not buy ourselves. We carefully choose each and every product and brand based on Quality, Price and Backup service.

Based centrally in Boston, Bellville, just off Durban road, we form strong bonds and lasting relationships with our customers. We do not specialise, but instead stock a wide range of products ranging from Aircraft, Gliders, Cars, Boats, Aerial Camera Platforms, Metal and Plastic static models, to a huge selection of tools, materials and accessories to cater for a modelers every whim.

Pop into our all new branch today and see why we are a cut above the rest.
