Germany is proud of its toy-making tradition, and puts an emphasis on alternative education for children. V.Kloeden is a charming shop in West Berlin that proves that educational toys don’t need to be boring. There are shelves of picture books, some handily in both German and English for bilingual families, and even Asterix comics in Latin for particularly adventurous parents. It’s rammed with toys of all sorts too – wooden Brio train sets, eerily lifelike Käthe Kruse dolls, Kersa puppets as well as more practical kit like rocking horses, detective sets and Little Prince suitcases.
|Opening hours:||Open 10am-7pm Mon-Fri; 10am-4pm Sat.|
