Store to buy dolls

After 6 years and many health issues, my husband and I are FINALLY come back to Paris next week. I am so excited I can hardly contain myself. We have a precious granddaughter that will be 4 in two weeks and I would love to buy her a special doll from France, possibly a baby doll. Can anyone tell me where I might find a gift like this? She also has two 7 & 8 year old brothers which we need to buy something for, maybe some type of board game or books translated into English (they read on 3-4 grade levels). Any info you can give me would be very helpful. I tried the search engine, but could find nothing recent or having to do with what I want. Thanks so much in advance for your help.

We've never been there but I bet the gift shop at the doll museum would be a good place to look ---> http://www.museedelapoupeeparis.com/?lang=en

Thanks. I have wanted to go to the doll museum every time we have come to Paris but we never seem to have time. We will have to make time this trip.

The Musee de la Poupee closed permanently last week.

There's a big toy store near Opera, Jouéclub (5 Boulevard des Italiens). It's spread out over quite a few different storefronts off the passage there. They have lots of dolls, and things for the boys. www.villagejoueclub.com

mediamamma, as a doll lover, you would enjoy visiting La Maison de Poupee, an antique shop that specialises in dolls, doll furniture, etc. la-maison-de-poupee.com/fr/content/6-contact

I recently posted this on the forum....(special toy for 3 year old) https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g18714…

While the topic is not about dolls, there are some really good ideas for boys. And, while I am looking for a 3year old.... some of the suggestions can be elevated on book level to your grandson's reading level I would think. At least, if anything, this will help you think of ideas of what they might enjoy.

Hope this helps!

The department store, Le Bon Marché, has a good toy department with dolls. Also try Galeries Lafayette, another dept. store with a nice toy dept.

The aforementioned JouéClub Village has a store dedicated to dolls, as well as stores dedicated to other types of toys; it's essentially a shopping gallery with nothing but toy stores. It's at 3-5 boulevard des Italiens, Metro Richelieu-Drouot.
