About Us

The time has come’ the Walrus said.
‘To talk of many things:
Of shoes – and ships – and ceiling wax –
Of cabbages – and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot –
And whether pigs have wings.’*



The Walrus and the Carpenter toy store has become one of Melbourne’s favourite toy destinations for parents and children alike.


This spacious and welcoming toy store on North Carlton’s Nicholson Street, encourages parents to stay and children to play.


 This is a toy shop that knows it stuff, where toys are hand sold by knowledgeable staff and what amazing toys they are. There are toys of every description from handcrafted wooden cars and blocks, gorgeous German dolls and ferocious flying dragons. Every shelf and corner holds a surprise- toy pirates and knights do battle on the shelves breaking only for tea in the very well equipped Playmobil camper van. It is fantastic.


One important warning however…. you may never want to leave.
