We visited this toy shop when we visited Callander last year and when you step over the threshold it really does send you back in the day when things were a lot simpler and we didnt have a care in the world as kids.

Two floors of neatly arranged (but somehow still delightfully higgledy-piggledy) toys spanning nearly 200 years: from Dinky cars to Matchbox, Sindy to Beatles paraphernalia, Thunderbirds to Meccano, Enid Blyton to puppets, trains to Robertsons Jam badges....More
