I quite like kids shops, because they sell the funniest things. Pépin La Lune (near Sablon) is no exception. At this concept store you’ll find clothes, toys, furniture and deco items.
When a new toy shop opens in the city, I cannot resist a quick visit. This one on Avenue Louise just opened (hence the waving bird at the door), and sells ‘educational’ toys for kids from 0 to 12 years of age.
Now this is a great shop for kids (and their parents, and everybody who loves pretty things that make you laugh). Furniture, wooden toys, lamps, mobiles, funny cards, cute clothes, artwork… all under one roof.
Probably my favourite toy shop in town. As soon as I was old enough to shop alone, this is where I’d spend hours to gaze at the stuffed animals and games. Whenever I’m in the area, I still can’t resist to pop in.
THIS SHOP IS NOW CLOSED. YOU’LL FIND LA MEUTE ON THIS LOCATION. And another kids store. Even though the shop has been open for a year now, I never really noticed it when walking down Rue du Page. Until that one day …
CLOSED, UNFORTUNATELY THE best shop to find witty or quirky gifts for literally everyone you know. Endless browsing and fun guaranteed.
I’ve said it before: kids nowadays have the coolest toyshops ever. When walking in the city centre a while ago, I came across Le Wolf. A stunning, fairy tale-like bookshop with a little resto/bar for mum & dad.
I’m quite fond of browsing ‘gadget’ shops, as you’ll probably know by now. A recent discovery is Mon Amour down Rue du Page. Even though I must have passed the shop a hundred times before, I never walked in.
I recently rediscovered the joys of this shop. When I was a kid, I visited the shop often, as it belonged to the ‘youth movement’ I was part of. It’s the perfect place to get everything for some arts & crafts.
