The Toy Shop

by Maud Lindsay

Description:  Once upon a time on a quiet street in an old city there was a Toy Shop. And there was never a day that some one did not stop to look at the shop window. One day it might be filled with bright balloons that were like great colored lights; and the next with jumping-jacks. Each chapter in this book relates the story of one of the toys in this shop of long ago: why it was chosen, the occasion of its purchase, the child who received it, and the imaginative play the toy inspired. What child wouldn't want to hear about these toys and imagine himself as the recipient!
