Established for nearly 30 years and with an enviable nationwide reputation for supplying traditional quality toys, Crocodile is a specialist independent toy shop with owners who are happy to give you advice and help with your purchases.
Situated in the Woolmarket in Cirencester, we stock a carefully selected choice of the latest and most traditional toys on the market today from all the leading manufactures such as Lego, John Crane, Manhattan Toy, Pintoy, and Meccano to name a few.
Our toys range from items suitable for the very young, to items for the older ones - wooden, radio control and science and new for Christmas 2012 is the completion of our new Lego room, the only one in the area, dedicated totally to Lego.
We believe in the traditional approach to shopping. As owner Mark Mitchell says
"We like to think we’re offering parents and children a traditional toy shop, going back to how a toy shop used to be.
This is why we no longer offer on-line shopping. We have found from our experience over the past few years that our customer's preferred to visit the shop in person to browse, see and actually touch the toys they are buying - we are happy to oblige!"
Set in the beautiful Cirencester Woolmarket, surrounded by other specialist shops and quality food outlets, a visit to Crocodile makes for a very pleasant experience.
Advice is all important for many parents, and Mark is normally on-hand to offer his expertise, and as a parent with three young children he is well aware what children like!
"We test everything that comes into the shop so we don’t just rely on the manufacturer’s tests!
Children can play with every toy that is in the shop to see how they interact with them which helps parents to decide what toys their children naturally want to play with.”
