Nottingham is particularly famous for its connections with the legend of Robin Hood and for its splendid period architecture. As well as the city's historical significance though, the town is an important regional shopping centre and Nottingham toy shops have some of the best selections in the country.
Rob-Roy Toy Makers in Long Eaton is almost unique in the UK. They have made and sold wooden toys since the early 1940s, and continues to be a thriving independent toy business.
Whilst many of the city's larger toy shops are located in the Victoria Centre, if you're prepared to travel a bit further afield then it's worth exploring the Hockley quarter and other areas of the city where you will find an abundance of independent retailers. A great mix of multiple, independent and internet-based Nottingham toy shops means that shoppers are spoilt for choice.
