Benjamin Pollock's Toyshop

Benjamin Pollock's Toyshop in Covent Garden's Market Building was originally established by Benjamin Pollock back in the 1880s.

Specialising in creative, educational and theatrical toys that nurture storytelling, Pollocks is enduringly popular with visitors and Londoners alike - in fact, it's one of Joanna Lumley's favourite shops in London.

Pollock's traditional cut-out and make Victorian toy theatres, paper shadow boxes and pop-up puppet theatres are particularly charming and make the perfect portable gift if you're planning to spoil the kids or any theatre lover back home.
