A cracking little shop and a bit of a hidden gem. First started coming here in early 70's as a kid and still there. WOW Must visit this place, it is legendary locally round here.

Fantastic shop. Good range of gifts all for different ages, fantastic service. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. My daughter loves this shop. Would shop here always, compared to a big chain of toy shops

I'm a bit of a fan of getting things online as shopping with two little ones of getting a chance to go without them is almost impossible. However, seeing things in the flesh is always better and gives you good new ideas for gifts and...More
