A Visit to Pollock's Toy Shop

The theatre on the counter is described by staff as "...German with scenery by Scholz"
"We don't like minimal at Pollock's"

So writes the toy shop on their Facebook page today.  The above photograph was taken this week showing their updated lobby and some of the many fun toys, books, and theatres they sell.

I laughed at that, because it's so true!  But it's also why their shop is so magical.  Although I have never had the privilege to visit yet, I know it would delight me no end.  I like to think of it as the best toy shop in the world...
