Dad, I know you've done the research, which stores should I look for?

Dad Corn said...

Actually, my dear, I have not done a spot of research on where to buy PEZ in London or France. I will but the task under my bonnet and see what I can find out.

Okay, Rachel,

I found an old web site that gave a list of where to find PEZ in various countries of the world. It is 10 years old, but it said what I would expect.

England: "Most Drugs Stores, airports, local thrift shops, toy stores, and candy shacks." There is a big toy store chain in London http://www.hamleys.com/ . And there is this one http://www.smythstoys.com/ , And there are 10 Toy-R-Us in London go to the web site http://www.toysrus.co.uk and click on store locator and enter "London" and you get a map. The one nearest downtown is on "Old Kent Road". (That must be a omen...)

France: I would think it would be the same as England. They acutally have Toy-R-Us in France too maybe this site will have a store locator http://www.toysrus.fr/. The big chain in France is found at this site http://www.lagranderecre.fr/ . Reportedly there are many of these in Paris.

Good luck.
