Toys aren't just for kids. But indeed your children will relish a romp through this shop where bake stations are lovingly carved out of wood and come complete with cupcake pink painted ovens and baby blue ice boxes all waist-high...for 5 year-old. If nostalgia is one of your bittersweet indulgences, this shop will have you wallowing in a healthy dollop of it. Trains and train tracks made out of wood and also of metal. Kites that you can fly and let crash in the sand without fear of them breaking to pieces. Also worth noting is that this is a business that is recognised by the French Ministry of Culture for its heritage and quality. You'll see the little sticker on the door when you enter. Established in 1860 this little shop has been delighting children and their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles for generations.
- Best Shopping: "There's a lot of great shopping to be had in the Palais Royal so set your compass first to Vilac and then fan out along both sides of the picturesque gardens. When you start here, you get the most important gifts - for the kids - crossed off the list. Which saves you oodles of time to peruse the other lovely shops of gloves, bags, designer wear and perfumes. Stop for a coffee and a pastry at one of the delightful cafes here, too."
- Recommended as Best Shopping Because: When spending your hard earned dollars on lovely gifts for loved ones it's best to make the gesture count, in as many ways possible.
