This is a Titanic of a toy shop, offering a staggering array of collectable toys, bric-a-brac, antiques and film memorabilia. This Titanic looks in no danger of sinking, however, as there are just too many adult kids around! This is the place for men and women who still collect teddy bears at 30, or who would die for an original Star Wars figurine.
Here you will find a jungle of old and new, kitsch and arty, rare and common. If you love browsing in antique shops, always stop at garage sales and still have your Kinder Surprise collection, you will adore this store.
