UNCOVERING THE BEST TOY STORES:

TOY TRADERS, LANGLEY

 

Uncovering the Best Toy Stores around the world is a new feature on our blog! It doesn’t matter where in the world we are visiting, my Hubby always wants to go and check out the toy stores (and now that we HAVE kids, we usually check around town and see what we can find). This series of posts will be added to as we find some of the best toy stores around!

First up,

TOY TRADERS LANGLEY

Toy Traders, in Langley, British Columbia, Canada, contains THE BEST Star Wars displays we have ever seen! and they just moved to an even bigger location and the displays are even better! We visited them only a week after they opened their new location, and there were lots of employees working on some great new displays in the store!

Toy Traders has so many toys you can touch and play with!

When you open the doors you immediately see bright blue sky and aisles of Toys! The huge warehouse setting allows for giant displays above the aisles!

As you look around, you will find a massive TreeBeard from Lord of the Rings behind you!

This is not your average toy store, they have plenty of specialty items for children of all ages. where else will you find a whole section of Dr Who?

All of the staff at Toy Traders are always helpful in answering any questions we have! they also buy back used toys and sell them in the used toy section! Everything is clearly marked with condition and any missing parts; its a great place to find kids toys for bargain prices (and even some collectible lego for the collectors!)

If you are a toy lover or collector in Vancouver, its worth the drive to Langley to check out this store! They were still working on getting all of the display’s set up when we were there and we can’t wait to go back and see when they were finished!

They are located at 200th St and the Langley Bypass. you can check out their website here!

    That look like so much fun! My dad still wants to go in toy stores when we travel even though his kids are both in their 20s! Never grow up!

    That’s so cute! Love that you have a thing you do in each place you visit. Toy stores are definitely a way to get to know the local culture, in a very fun and every day life kind of way. Love it!
