There’s something really special about vintage toys. Perhaps it’s because they remind us of our own childhoods, because they give a unique look or just because they are often really, really cool. Whatever the reason, a great way to add a vintage vibe to your child’s room while maintaining your own style credentials is to invest in some vintage toys (obviously check that they’re child-friendly and safe first). What’s more, if your little ones look after them, they often make a good financial investment as the market for vintage toys continues to thrive. Good places to look are eBay, antique fairs and even lifestyle stores such as Few & Far and the Shop at Bluebird who have picked up on the trend.
If you’re after the look, but would prefer to buy new toys, there are also lots of great reproductions that give you the vintage look but are brand new. Check out notonthehighstreet.com for a good range, including this lovely retro racing car, which can be yours for £89.
