Walking into Kaleidoscope Toys is an experience that leaves every child (and adult) filled with wonder. Every nook and cranny is used with even more toys hanging from the ceiling. That special present or sought after treat is likely to be here somewhere.
This family business was started in 1976 when Mark was 8, and having grown up in the business there’s not much he doesn’t know about toys. In 2005, wife Valerie joined Mark, when his father Tom retired. The shop continues to evolve and update without losing its character.
It’s always worth asking if you can’t find what you want as there’s lots more than meets the eyes and they are always ready to help. Kaleidoscope stock many of the major toy companies like Lego, Hasbro, Fisher Price, Mattel, Playmobil, Brio and Sylvanian Families, together with companies like Orchard Toys, Galt, WOW, Ty and Revell to name a small selection. They are also licensed to sell fireworks all year around for Fireworks Night, New Year or that special occasion.
Kaleidoscope Toys have a website www.kaleidscope-toys.co.uk although not everything is on the site, so if you can’t see what you’re after just email: firstname.lastname@example.org and get it delivered locally for free.
