    ”In a small road close to the Arena in Nimes, the most gorgeous children’s bookshop with a smattering of unusual toys. The books are for all ages, but the toys mainly for younger children. Fabulous for presents. I could spend hours in there.”

    ”A great toy shop down one of the little back roads in Montpellier. This shop specialises in board games for all ages - really unusual things and great for presents. They have a big table in the middle of this small but well packed shop with lots of games out for you to try. The staff have a great knowledge of each toy and when asked what is suitable for eg a 6 year old girl, they’ll get out games, show you how they work and are really knowledgeable about each one.” (WJ, Mar 2011)

    ”Situated down one of the little pedestrianised alleyways by the ‘Ancien Courier’ is this great English bookshop for adults upstairs and a children’s corner downstairs. They offer weekly language exchange conversation groups, a bookclub and on Wednesday afternoons storytime for children between the ages of 3 and 7 years. You can also have a coffee inside or outside here.” (WJ, Mar 2011)

    ”Situated in the indoor shopping mall in Nimes, Eveil et Jeux is full of educational toys from newborns up. You’ll find toys here at the shop or online that you won’t find anywhere else. A great place to go and try the toys too before you buy as they have toys out to play with. Good imagination games (shopping, cooking...) and lots of choice of paints, crayons and making things.” (WJ, Mar 2011)
