Shopping For Kids

Buying toys and games for children in Finland can be expensive, international staples such as Lego and Mattel, or modern games for consoles like Play Station and Wii, generally cost more than in the rest of Europe. However, there are Finnish companies which produce toys of very high quality, especially in the field of educational play, that are well worth the money and may not be available elsewhere.

In Helsinki, you’ll find the best selection of toys and games at Heureka Shop in the Kamppi shopping centre, Hobby Point, BR Toys, and Ombrellino. It would be remiss to not pop into the Moomin Shop in the Kämp Gallery to browse through the toys and models from Finland’s most enduring children’s fantasy world, one known across the world.
