About Us

About us 1

The Toy Shop in Helensburgh is a traditional, independent toy shop bursting full of original and inspiring toys, gifts and games.

We are a small, family-run and owned business and you can find us on the seafront of the Victorian-built town of Helensburgh in Argyll, on Scotland's west coast - just a short hop from Glasgow city centre by rail or car and only 5 minutes from Loch Lomond. We're pretty lucky.

The Toy Shop is stacked high to the ceiling with fun and games and we really pride ourselves on sourcing environmentally-friendly, ethically-sourced products as well as the old favourites… I mean, who doesn’t love a spinning top?!You'll discover fabulous things from the UK and Europe and beyond and brands such as Djeco and Vilac from France, Hape from Germany, Green Toys from the USA, Eugy from New Zealand, BiOBUDDi from the Netherlands and so much more!

If we don’t have what you're looking for, we will do our very best to find it for you. Please just give us a call or send us a Facebook message and we'll see what we can do!

We love our toys and we love to support our customers.

Thank you for supporting this little independent toy shop by the sea.
