Toy stores

Post by morgenhund » Sat Dec 30, 2017 1:03 pm

With raising a three culture child (English/German/Russian - order purely alphabetical) we find that we have to look quite hard to find foreign language toys and books, in addition to getting German speaking toys. Of course not all the toys have to speak (I say this as a parent!) and we also are trying to ensure that he has plenty of books in the three languages. In addition, we like to try to avoid having to resort to amazon for everything, even if the shops struggle to compete on occasions. Here is a list of toy stores that we have been to:

Specialist Toyshops
  • Heinz, Josefstädterstrasse 54, 1080 Wien
  • Fischer Spielwaren, Obkirchergasse 37-39, 1190 Wien
  • Rumpelstilzchen, Lange Gasse 72, 1080 Wien
  • Fürnis, Servitengasse 4A, 1090 Wien
  • Spielzeugschachtel, Rauhensteingasse 5, 1010 Wien
As well as the toy departments of:
  • Müller (Mariahilferstrasse and Wien Mitte)
  • Spar (Wien Mitte - limited selection, but more available online)


Vienna is like an Ikea sofa - you know you should upgrade, but why bother when it is this comfortable.

Thanks for the extra tips - we head to the Gewerbepark Stadlau occasionally and the Donauzentrum from time to time.
