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 wearing a monkey but Sammie loves the giraffe!

They are just £5.99 and we want one of each!
