In the run-up to Christmas 2012, The Daily Constitutional will round-up the best of London shopping…
Unique boutiques, markets, one-man and one-woman bands, as well as the finest big London names.
Pollock's Toy Museum is a joy at any time of year. But at Christmas, it really comes into its own.
Benjamin Pollock was the last of the Victorian Toy Theatre printers and this famous London institution takes its name from him. Originally at Monmouth Street, Pollock’s has been at Scala Street W1 since 1969.
Dolls, toy theatres, board games, teddy bears, the shop is a cornucopia of traditional toys.
The museum itself is an eccentric delight with six rooms and three staircases (!) packed with historic toys and games.
If you've forgotten how to keep Christmas in your heart, get along to Pollock's.
