A rarity these days is the toy store filled to the brim with the games and fancies of yesteryear rather than the latest piece of plastic or video homage to superheroes. Squeeze into this store in the grand Royal Arcade and be overwhelmed by the offerings: sparkling princess costumes, cuddly teddies, wooden rocking horses and old-school pedal cars. Every shelf is bulging and those who are collectors will be pleased to know Jasper Junior stocks Sylvian Families, Steiff plush animals, Playmobil and Sonny Angel dolls. Bring in the kids and chances are you’re not leaving empty handed.
Almost smack dab in the centre of the Melbourne CBD within a reasonable walking distance of popular spots like the Queen Victoria Market to the north and Federation Square to the south.
