One of the oldest in Paris (founded in 1884), this human-sized establishment is a marvelous example of the quintessential French toy store. Wooden toys, scale models, figurines, music boxes, musical instruments, dolls, board games, stuffed animals, costumes—in short, everything that delights and enchants and doesn’t need batteries. There is a second store at 33 blvd. Edgar Quinet in the 14th, close to the Montparnasse train station.
