I'm a big fan of quirky stores that sell offbeat stuff, things that make you laugh or think (or both). This little store down a little alley in the old town is filled with fun stuff, and they let you play with all of it! On sunny days they have a little cart out under St. Michael's Gate, with solar toys and windup stuff. Remember the gyroscope you had as a kid? They have that one, and a few twists on the classic. I don't know Slovak, so the English speaking staff were a big help! The owner is just like the store - fun, and a bit out there. I left with a few things, including a windup/solar emergency radio that plays for hours on just a few cranks - smaller and more efficient than the one my friend got at LL Bean.

I came through Bratislava on a VERY rainy/snowy day in February and needed somewhere to kill some indoor time where I wouldn't have to order lots of coffee and/or beer and just have to find somewhere else to go to pee later. This shop kind of sneaks up on you, it's in an alley that doesn't have alot of other businesses, so a little hard to find. They sell toys sort of like the Discovery Channel store but also with some unique items you probably wouldn't find outside Slovakia. Maybe I'm just biased because the owner is (pretty randomly) from Maine and I've spent time there so we had a nice talk, but both employees in the store were very nice and told me what else I should do in the city, etc. They spend alot of time with their customers and really engage them, even small children. Felt happy (and warm and dry) here and I didn't see any other shops like this in Bratislava, so I'm glad I went.
