Toys and Games
This page has a focus on companies selling indoor and outdoor toys. Also, don't forget there are some excellent children's books on the books page.
For traditional toys, the first places to try are usually Hamleys and the Toyshop. But don't forget that the department stores carry lots of toys too, especially around Christmas and may have deals and discounts, which can make them cheaper than the more obvious outlets. It's not just MPs and Londoners who can buy toys at John Lewis! Not only do they have a massive range, but they also have competitive prices. They deliver free on orders over £30 or you can collect free from John Lewis stores and some Waitrose stores as well.
