In the heart of Paris, though maybe not in the most glamourous of all locations (the shopping centre Le Forum Des Halles), is a great kid’s shop called Les Fourmis Rouges (the Forum des Images is under the same roof). It offers everything you could ever dream of: toys, clothes, furniture and accessories. Most of the items are discounted, and all of them are beautiful. The Fourmis Rouges also offers ateliers for kids, in which kids get to make their own soft toys (or ‘dodos’ as we call them over here). It is definitely worth checking out if you are ever in the area!
