Any other place like Smith's Toys? :)

Hello everyone!


Does anyone know if there are some other big retail chain here - or in Germany or Austria - that sells toys and video games like Smith's Toys (Toys R Us)?





Thanks!

Franz Carl Weber and King Jouet are the only ones I know of.

Not sure if they do video games.

Big chains specialising in toys and videogames.

Nope, not in Switzerland.

(Smyths is btw hardly a videogame store, they have Switch and just a little bit of PS4 stuff)

But that's a whole different company

(Yes I know Smyths bought a bunch of stores from them, but that is where all connection ends.)

There still seem to be Smyth's toy stores in Switzerland. Unless Smith's was not a typo and Smyth's is something else.

You can also order online, free shipping from Fr. 29.00.

What I saw is that even if you can buy it online, there are stores that have their own individual discounts that are worth it, or even discontinued items in shelves that online retailers is as plain as simple as we have it or not...

The fun here is the hunt for unique items or for big discounts too
