This North Devon market town is perhaps most famous for being the home of the internationally-renowned Dartington Crystal glass factory - although it is also well known for having a strong tradition of locally-owned, independent shops. In addition to the excellent range of shops selling locally-produced food, Torrington has a couple of small and friendly toy shops selling a wide range of products from electronic gadgets to traditional board games.
Puppets and Puzzles in the Pannier Market is a popular destination for families whose children enjoy a bit of role play and make-believe. Fore Street is home to a small branch of the Toy Zone. This shop sells a good mixture of modern and retro toys. Pregnant 'mums to be' like having Bumps on their doorstep in New Street. Personal service and a great selection of nursery equipment and baby clothing makes this shop a firm favourite.
