A perfect name for this shop. Nice to know that Pinocchio wasn't the last hand made toy.

When I read the name of the store I immediately thought of Pinocchio. Looks like a fun store to check out. Thanks for sharing your world today.

Ah, Pinocchio's father lives here! Mass produced toys are everywhere, so have a place where well crafted and artistic playthings are available. Instead of shopping based on price, toys of wood have a permanence about them. When the low quality toys are disposed of early, perhaps what he sells will allow the imaginative child to play along for many more years...great store and find!

Great captures!!!

A lovely post Gemma, thank you.

Ahh, Pinocchio, as they say, great minds think alike. Pinocchio was my first thought too, has his nose grown any longer I wonder!

I would love to wander through this shop, I love things made of wood.

Very nice photo.

Oh, how I would LOVE to visit this little shoppe. We used to have lots of these in this country, but they are going the way of the other smaller mom and pop shops for the big places like Toys R Us. This one is so dear. It makes my inner child come bursting forth. Thanks for putting a smile on my face. genie
