About The Toy Station and who we are...

History...

The Toy Station came from the minds of my two partners and I, who share a love of traditional and modern toys. We wanted to create a toy shop that would excite the hearts and minds of children and families.

We opened on 12th October 1996 we only had a few lines of toys and we mainly specialised in collectors toys. Over time we have added more toys by popular demand and soon became full to the brim that we had to move two shops down the road! This meant we had more space and even more lines for the customers to enjoy.

Today...

Now we are proudly situated at 6 Eton Street and still maintain our traditional values while still keeping up with the latest trends.
Every customer is important in our eyes- from pocket money to considered purchase. We enjoy spending time and giving advice to our customers, this rapport has not failed yet, as we have our original children customers now shopping for their children.

The Owners...

Vigen Khatchik - A self proclaimed sci-fi fanatic, whose passion for all things 'out there' translates very well in our shop. He loves to know about every product in depth and keen to share the info with any customer, he could be best described as an encyclopaedia of toys- old and new.

Karen Khatchik - Wife to the encyclopaedia! You can often find her performing acrobats in the window to make the most amazing display of our stock. She has a love for all things girly, especially the fancy dress, she will help you become the most beautiful princess or a handsome hero.

Katerin aka 'Katy' Pezeshkian - Sister to the encyclopaedia and the acrobat! Always sporting beautiful glasses you can find her cooing over the baby toys and playing with the stuffed animals, she can help you find the perfect gift for any child for any occasion. A pro at scrabble- we dare you to challenge this walking dictionary.
