As the biggest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast, Scarborough is able to support a surprisingly large and eclectic mix of shops - with several independent toy shops to be found. Whilst the main city centre is home to many of the larger chain stores like the Early Learning Centre, Scarborough has a large indoor market and plenty of small streets where some terrific independent toy shops are situated.
The Toy Shop in St. Thomas Street is a delightful independent business that sells an amazing selection of wooden traditional toys. They also have some delightful soft toys that will please adults as well as children! Model making enthusiasts are well served by Arrow Models in Newborough. Their huge range of radio controlled models is supplementd by Airfix kits, Hornby model railways and Scalextric model motor racing sets and accessories. If you are after some fun children's gifts, try Festival of Fun in Eastborough where they have plenty of jokes and party toys.
