Shortly after we got married in November 2011 we visited a lovely toy shop in Harrogate looking for Christmas presents for our grandchildren. (We both have raised large families and have 22 grandchildren between us.) We were impressed with the individuality of the shop and the quality of the stock, particularly by the puppets and wooden toys. A seed was sown. We started selling a few puppets at Botany Bay Chorley a year ago and began looking for premises for a shop in the Spring. After looking around we felt Kendal was an ideal place for our toy shop and decided on a small unit in Blackhall Yard.
As you can imagine from the name of the shop we sell a lot of puppets from finger puppets to large chimps. We have traditional wooden toys and some retro toys that were around in the 1960s. We have wooden food and Bigjigs railway and we have a wide range of Kiddimoto balance bikes and accessories, handmade clocks, Papo animals, knights, fairies and dinosaurs, beautiful mermaids we could go on and on… Too many lovely things to list!
