The Favorites List: Oliwood Toys


One big surprise in being a mom is how extremely excited I get going into toy stores! Perhaps it is my general love of whipping out the credit card to bring home shiny new things but there is just a little extra magic in the rows of bright colored blocks, games, dress up clothes and cuddley magical animals (purple, green and orange porcupine anyone?). The toy shop that gives me that special zing at the moment is Oliwood Toys on Avenue de la Chasse.

You had me at “My Way”.

Recently evolved from a smaller, cramped space to a spacious, well lit and well, highly magical, wonderland, Oliwood is where I go to dream. Prominent in the collection are such favorites at Lilliputiens, Haba and Moulin Roty. Also a heavy weighting toward wooden, beautiful and durable toys, games, costumes, you name it! Although I have spent most time exploring the baby section, I have been drawn in a trance-like state towards the older kid toys, fantasizing about when I can get Bababoo this gorgeous puppet show theater, oh my.

WARNING: Do not go in here without planning on walking out with a very exciting, shiny new toy for yourself, err, I mean your little one. Happy shopping.

Do these come in my size?
Cow one please. 🙂
Please mommy?

  1. Oliwood looks like Charming Charlie’s for adults, in other words, so many fun and shiny things! Zoe seems pleased with the adventure. Great pics!

  2. Hey there! We took a trip to Oliwood toys- it’s dangerously close to my apartment 🙂 It really is a fantastic place, signed up for the club and everything! Thanks for the tip

  3. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little research on this. And he actually bought me lunch due to the fact that I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this subject here on your website.
