Toy Radar: Scout & Co

boys dolls house

We love to seek out offbeat, boutique and unusual toy shops to tell you about. This week, the best toys for younger children from Scout & Co. Stocking stylish alternatives to throwaway plastic and stereotypical pink and blue children’s toys, their new arrival is a striking dolls house – for boys and girls.

Scout & Co is the brainchild of three creative women from media, fashion and retail backgrounds, who now juggle motherhood with sourcing modern, stylish toys and clothes for their beautifully curated site. We love their style, and the shop has a brilliant selection of practical, ethical and substantial stuff – all wilfully untypical and devoid of stereotype.
