Our wee boy LOVES mapes toy shop. It's a really fab shop - an Aladdins cave with toys for all budgets and ages. Great to visit a proper traditional toy shop, not many of them left. Prices are so reasonable too, his pocket money goes far. Soon he'll be in for the joke tricks like we used to go in for when we were small!

Used the bike hire once too and found it excellent value, great service and well maintained bikes. Highly recommend.

After visiting Mapes years ago as a child, upon returning recently I was delighted to find that it's under new management. It's owner and his wife are the among the nicest people you'll ever meet; both kind and accommodating. We managed to have an enjoyable and comfortable wee cycle around the island thanks to these guys! Not to mention the toy shop, which is adorable and has a vide variety of items within. It's impossible to take a trip Milport without paying Mapes a visit!

This is just the best toy shop you could visit , from pocket money toys to the usual high end Lego etc a child’s dream shop. Something for everyone and all ages are catered for. Staff are always so pleasant to serve you too and talk to the children , a delight.
Have also used the cycle hire over the last 50+ years what more can you say to recommend it when on the island.

Have loved this shop since I was little, excellent toy shop with very wide range crammed into it, great and very reasonably priced bike hire service, and a very good place to buy new bikes (I've bought two so far, family have also bought bikes here) with expert service and very competitive prices. They also do repairs. Relatively new owners are carrying the torch and keeping up the great standards. A must visit when in Millport.
