Paxton Gate's Curiosities for Kids is a unique blend of high-end toys, books, original artworks that would appeal to children, and natural items (for example, owl pellets) that kids could use to learn more about the world. If you are in the neighborhood, it is well worth a browse. The original shop at 824 Valencia is also fascinating to browse, but requires "no touching"
