Children have a magical ability to play with pretty much anything - sticks, pine cones, a scrap of material or a made-up imaginary friend. But sometimes it's even more fun to play with 'proper' toys as they can really fire the imagination and help the child learn new things. Save the world in a Batman costume or solve an exciting mystery with a spy pen - the sky's the limit. To help you on your way, we've put together a guide to some of Stockholm's best toy stores where you can find toys for all ages and interests.
