I'm a qualified UK lawyer, who emigrated to Australia in May 2012. I have three small children and we've been getting to know Brisbane and making it our home.

So, I've been a big fan of Crackerjack Toys since I moved to Bulimba nearly 5 years ago, as I firmly believe in shopping local and supporting local businesses. It has, however, taken on new levels of gorgeousness and cool since the business was bought last year.

It has moved premises to just off Oxford Street, Bulimba (accessible from Oxford Street) and the new owner, the lovely, kind and generous Jo, has poured lots of energy and love into the business and knows exactly what children want and does so in a way that embraces quality, value for money and magic for children.

The business and the stock have grown to include more toys for every age group from newborn babies up to early teens.

There are also workshops and classes held in the space behind the shop. Workshops include making fairy gardens and your own mini aquarium (my children have done both and enjoyed them immensely and you end up with something beautiful rather than something that breaks and doesn't last two minutes). The classes include Stories & Sounds and Crafty Critters, taught by qualified and inspiring local mums. All reasonably priced, fun and nurturing content and represent great value for money.

The shop itself is a feast for your eyes of pure loveliness. There is so much to look at and enjoy and something to suit every budget.

What makes Crackerjack Toys really special, in my eyes, is the incredible personal and friendly service provided by Jo and her team. Ordering in special items, gift advice and beautiful gift wrapping.

Most of all though...children are made welcome, it's all about them and it's a veritable treasure trove of magic for your little people.
