Reading has a lot to shout about where toy shopping is concerned. The recent refurbishment of the popular Broad Street Mall means that the town is now home to two major shopping centres (the second being The Oracle). Broad Street and Friar Street have also developed beyond all recognition in the last few years, and the selection of toy shops in Reading, the capital town of Berkshire, has benefited from this greatly.
Luckily, Reading's population has continued to sustain a number of smaller, independent toy shops, many of which are listed below. These include Hobby Stores, one of the UK's largest radio-controlled model retailers. The Entertainer has a branch in Broad Street that sells a terrific selection of modern and traditional toys including dolls, jigsaws, board games and construction sets from LEGO.
