Gamleys - Mount Pleasant Road
Toy stores seem to fall into two categories: Mega-marts that sell only the big brands, guaranteed to sell, or cutesy shops that sell quaint dolls, wooden toys, and whatever the owner has a penchant for. Gamleys is a small chain of toy shops that actually has things children like. Large brands include a good collection or Playmobil, Selectrix, and Mattel, but many other small brands are sold here as are a good collection of books and toys for older children, like train sets and action figures.
It seems the chain is getting smaller as more shops are being closed every year.
