Stumbled across The Olive Branch Toyshop searching the internet for some Lanka Kade. Unfortunately when I went back to... try and order, the website was down. However Julie couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating when I contacted her over the phone. After waiting for a few pieces to come in, my order arrived the next day all the way in Scotland, beautifully packaged. Fantastic, personal service - highly recommended.read more

Just home after a wonderful birthday for our 3 year old daughter. Organising toddler parties can be stressful but not... when Julie and the team are involved. I can’t honestly say I couldn’t have asked for anything more...the food, decoration, planning, assistance and party bags were truly amazing and made all the better for the most friendly, helpful service. It’s been a delight from start to finish and you really do go that extra mile to make the experience the best it can possibly be. Thank you so much for making it such a magical day xxread more

This is a gem of a shop. The family friendly atmosphere, and, the super interaction with children of all ages is... amazing. Nothing is too much trouble. My twin daughters were literally able to road test anything that caught their eye. The selection on offer is fabulous, these are not your everyday high street toys. Beautifully made toys with a real traditional feel. Perfect for everyday purchases and for finding that something special toy to treasure. We’ll definitely be going back, on a regular basis. � The Olive Branchread more
