This past weekend we ventured over to Islington in North London to explore the area and visit a few of our favourite shops. We’d barely been out five minutes when the heavens opened – like a tropical monsoon! Luckily for us we happened to be right outside the brilliant children’s shop Molly Meg on Essex Road so we quickly dashed in. We were greeted by the owner Molly who warmly welcomed us in out of the rain and gave the kids the okay to road test some of her fun toys. Can you imagine a better place to wait out a rainstorm than this veritable treasure trove packed full of the best toys and gifts. Whilst I pored over the cute decor and accessories the kids made themselves right at home and got to playing. The toys were all such a big hit that both their birthday and christmas wish lists were devised right there and then.

Molly Meg has always been one of my go to sites for cute kids toys and decor, they sell a fantastic mix of both well established and exciting new brands where everything chosen is not only fun but stylish. From teepees to telescopes, books to bedding, it’s one of those great shops that you could spend hours exploring. They also have a great range of party supplies and decorations for special occasions.

Every month or so Molly opens up her store to host fun children’s workshops, often teaming up with designers, artists and authors to inspire and engage children using different creative processes. Past sessions have included screen printing, doll making and quirky collage projects. Check out the journal section of their site to keep up to date with future workshops. We can’t wait to join one!

Molly Meg, 111 Essex Road, London, N1 2SL

Opening Times:

Monday-Friday 9am-5pm
Saturday 10am-6pm
