It really is one of my favourite stores - Kidz Inc, located in Al Quoz close to Al Manara, is a paradise if you like quality and great design.
It certainly does not feature any of the cheap plastic products and beeping toys which most other shops carry. But it anyways is more than just a normal toy shop. A big part of their sales is actually furniture, both for home use as well as for nurseries or playgrounds.
Kidz Inc or Innovative Kidz Trading is the distributor of European brands like Haba, Kaethe Kruse, Steiff, Eitech, Micro, Automobloxx, and many more, and has chosen those brands for their quality and durability. Hence, the pricest are also not the cheapest, but it means the toys and furniture will last, probably for more than one child!
love about the shop is the atmosphere - calm and welcoming, with nice
background music, inviting you to spend time and making you want to to
sit down on the little wooden chairs and start playing immediately...
It might of course just be the memories of my own childhood, being German myself, but I am pretty sure that also other nationalities can appreciate such a great store!

The shop is located right next to the Lime Tree Cafe in Al Quoz, a great combination to spend time!
If you know where to find it it is actually very easy:
From Sheikh Zayed Road, take the exit to Al Manara street. Turn right after a couple of hundred meters, and right again at the next junction. One more left turn and you are already in the right street. The shop and cafe will be on your left hand side.
Find here a link to their location map.
The owner of this fantastic store by the way also runs two nurseries in Dubai. Obviously the toys and furniture there will be quite similar to those in the shop. And the atmosphere is just as warm and welcoming! Have a look at this website if you are interested to know more: www.childrensoasisnursery.com
