Pastorini toy shop in Zurich

Pastorini is an incredible kids’ toys and craft store in the center of Zurich, at Weinplatz 3, 8001 Zürich. Three levels of high-quality wooden toys, musical instruments, gorgeous books, puzzles, various craft materials. I popped in for 15 minutes to buy a birthday gift, and was so enthralled, I could barely make my way out after over an hour (reminding myself that my parking ticket has expired).

It was the first store where I actually saw a cube chair (looking to buy a few of those for our home), a simple wooden model for “only” 149 CHF. You guessed it right — this store is high quality, high price. I still recommend visiting it, because you can get unique gifts or toys that don’t have to completely break your budget, and also it’s a great way to get inspiration and check out items from different brands, then perhaps look up the same or similar items online.
