Gifting Crisis? Buy Presents For The Kids At These 6 Toy Stores In The City
Spoil the kids rotten – these stores are your one-stop shops for all the toys they could ever need.
Age 2 or 82 – Hamley’s is always a blast to visit. They even let you go crazy playing with the toys before buying one. Probably the biggest collection of premium and expensive toys, you’ll get everything from giant stuffed teddy bears (we’re talking bigger than life-size!), telescopes and detective toys, limited edition footballs and cars controlled by actual steering wheels. They’ll even wrap the present in signature Hamley’s wrapping paper for you for free!
Established way back in 1919 (it’s almost 100 years old!), you can find what is probably the oldest toy store in Kolkata in store D 67/ 68 in New Market. Yes, we see the irony that it’s called ‘Modern Toys’. Dolls, cars, blocks, puzzles, books, educational toys, both branded and not, are available in plenty.
There’s no doubt the kids will drag you in here if you’re in Forum, they can’t seem to resist the bright lights and stacked toys. We love their collection of puzzles and toys for the little-est ones. They’re also stocked up on school supplies and you’ll get a good selection of school bags to chose from – they have colourful cartoon and Disney ones which are uber cute. Plus, they have a giant Mario figure if any ‘90s kids want to treat themselves.
