Toy Testing

Just to prove that we try to test most of our toys - here's Simon playing the accordion in the shop (a real 'toy' instrument). This was one of a set of photographs capturing a day at Pollocks by photographer Yang Zhou.

Nathalie Lete Theatre

Finally we have received delivery of our Nathalie Lete theatres. When we saw this earlier in the year we couldn't wait to stock it. We are fans of chic French illustrator Nathalie Lete who draws inspiration from her vintage toy collection. We also have new stock of Petitcollin dolls (as featured riding on the elephant). The theatre is only available in store and we have limited stock. Hurry!
