Dewsbury in West Yorkshire is a popular commuter town for residents working in Leeds, Bradford or Huddersfield. In 2007 the Dewsbury outdoor market was voted as ‘Britain’s Best Market’ and brings thousands of shoppers into the city centre. This influx is of great benefit to specialist local toy shops like Cosmic Toys and Collectables and Tierney’s Traditional Toy Shop.
The Toy Soldier in Wesley Place is a fantastic tradional toy shop with huge selections of wooden toys, whilst Kiddies Kingdom focuses on baby equipment and accessories. Smart Play Zone is an online supplier of ride-on vehicles and outdoor toys such as wooden climbing frames and fibreglass slides. Meanwhile, a good selection of well priced children's clothes can be found at Kids Connection in Westgate.
