We dropped in here for a look and it was quaint enough with some cute little wooden toys and nick backs. Nice to see a small toy store in a small town!

We stopped at Olinda for a coffee and where delighted in finding this little toy shop. Some very individual items not the stock standard toy shop . Loved it and the granddaughter will have a very special Christmas present from there .

A wonderful little toy shop in this quaint town. It certainly has things you do not necessarily see elsewhere. (We bought something to set aside for Christmas) While I would not travel here specifically, if you are in the locality, it is a worthwhile visit!
