A toy shop or  toy store. A shop focussed on selling children's toys. It may sell things like:

  • toys for babies or small children
  • dolls and teddy bears

The tag may also be used for shops selling

  • board games (although you may prefer shop=games)
  • collectible miniature figurines (although you may prefer shop=collector)
  • collectible card games (e.g. Magic: The Gathering)
  • tabletop games (e.g. Warhammer 40,000)

How to map

Set a node or draw as an area along the shop outline.

Tag it with shop=toys and name=*.

Tags to use in combination

Similar tags

  • shop=games - Specifically for board games. Many toy shops sell some board games alongside other toys. If a shop primarily sells board games, you might prefer to use shop=games (overlapping definition. This is a new tag idea as of Oct 2015)
  • shop=model - For shops selling scale models of planes, trains, auto-mobiles etc. Either static of self-propelled possibly with some form of control. These may be quite toy-like e.g. remote control cars at the affordable "low end" would often be sold as toys for children, so there's overlap, but model shops can be quite serious adult-oriented going beyond what would normally be called "toys". Choose shop=model if a shop primarily sells models, and/or stocks "toys" for adults.
  • shop=video_games - For shops selling video games.
  • shop=sports - For shops selling sports equipment (more "serious" fun for grown ups)
  • shop=collector - A shop that focuses on selling collector's items, like stamps, coins, action figures, etc.
