This member of a worldwide chain has been selling children's toys and adults' pastimes for at least 150 years from a location at the corner of rue de la Fontaine. Everything -- from computer toys to simple playthings carved from wood by craftspeople in the Alps and Asia -- is available. Adults appreciate such jeux de société (parlor games) as Pictionnari, priced at 60F ($49/£26), which will improve both your social skills and your French-language vocabulary.
