What will you find in the Canterbury Toyshop?

Our latest fascination…

Just the cutest range of bag pets – they are so soft, we keep on picking them up for a cuddle and a chat!

There are so many different animals, and we are arguing over which one is the loveliest. Gemma is proudly wearing a monkey on her lanyard but Samie only had love for the giraffe!

They are just £5.99 and so cute too!

Marjorie’s Christmas Letter

Many of you will have followed the fascinating story of Marjorie over Christmas last year. The clips from the BBC news are here to watch if you missed it! Just so you know, the family were located and have since visited the shop and we were delighted to hear more about the letter and their link to their past.
