Little Melbourne Reviews
Trains. Play. Trains. Repeat. If you've got a little train loving person in your family, you're going to adore this cafe and store in East Bentleigh.
Toot Toot Toys is much, much more than a toy/train shop though. Sure, you can purchase all sorts of Thomas the Tank Engine, Chuggington and train track here (including Thomas merch) but it's the cafe and play space that will have you coming back for more.
At the back of the shop is a cafe and well organised play space for mini train enthusiasts. This play space is complete with little kid-sized tables with every train and track going. You could spend ages here whizzing and cruising the tracks with Thomas, Percy, Henry or James. Thomas the Tank Engine is also playing on repeat on the back wall screen. It's not just about Thomas the Tank though. There's a table of Duplo and a Sylvanian Families House. A little dolls cradle and some kids kitchen play equipment complete the set-up.
So what about you? Settle back with some magazines and grab a coffee or two - you could be here for a little while. There's a row of table and chairs for Mum, Dad, Friends and the Grandparents or a big comfy couch. Another thing we loved about this cafe was little ones can't escape into the shop as there's a little gate to keep them in!
The toilet is easy accessible and there's a change table in the bathroom and highchairs are available. The cafe is limited but does a good coffee, babycino etc. There's some pre-packaged Charlie's treats available and some other small offerings and the fridge is packed full of drinks. Fill up at home then head here for a treat.
The shop stocks lots of your favourite quality brands - Thomas (of course), Siku, LEGO, Nano Block, Kinetic Sand, Brio, Peppa Pig, Micro and some others. It's the perfect place to stock up on presents. Hint, hint!
If you're after a little play date, live local or it's a rainy day, Toot Toot Toys will soon become your favourite destination. All aboard.....
