Target has just announced that later this month they will be hosting Australia's Biggest Toy Sale. Starting on June 26 and running for a glorious three weeks, this sale promises to bring out the kid in all of us. It is a nation-wide event that will see 600 new and 300 exclusive toys piling onto Target's already heavy-laden shelves, ready to be taken home.

Everyone loves a toy shop (whether they want to admit it or not), and Sydney has some of the best in the land. Whether you're shopping for your son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild or someone who's a kid at heart, we recommend stopping by these fantastic shops when you're cruising around in your car hire in Sydney.


A reviewer on Yelp said that Popshop's "entire purpose is to sell fun things". If you want to buy moustache-themed stuff, bacon-flavoured toothpaste, dinosaur bubble guns or squeaking rubber chickens (and who doesn't?), this is the place to go. Located at 330 Crown Street, Surry Hills, this shop is right downtown – so make sure you pop in when you're out and about in Sydney.

Adrienne & The Misses Bonney

A shop for the more traditional toy-lover, Adrienne & The Misses Bonney boasts doll houses, life-sized rocking horses, toy cars, top-quality stuffed animals and a variety of clothes for children. This shop can be found at 26 Cross Street, Double Bay. It has enjoyed royal patronage and is regularly visited by the world's rich and famous, so it presents a great opportunity to see how the other-half's children live!

We also recommend checking out this website, which lists some of the other toy shops you should add to your must-see list. Your car hire in the Sydney airport is your key to visiting any and all of these shops – so make sure you don't forget to organise it!
