The Good Toy Guide has named the family run Scottish independent Toy Hub as its Retailer of the Month for August.

Based in Dunblane and founded by the husband and wife team, Gez and Helen Gourley, the store has been championed by the Good Toy Guide team for its balance of big name brands and educational toys.

Since its launch in 2010, Toy Hub has become famed for its collection of strong brands such as LEGO, Orchard Toys, Melissa & Doug, Coiledspring Games and more, as well as its emphasis on in-store theatre and customer experience.

As well as a locally revered window display, the store even boasts its own resident games expert who has helped to expand the store’s offering as well as make her own range of infant toys which can be purchased in store.

Further consumer incentives offered by Toy Hub include a loyalty reward scheme offering customers two points for every pound spent, secret shopping nights and Birthday party planning help with wish lists, party bags, helium balloons, cards and gift wrapping.

“Helen and Gez have introduced some brilliant ideas to draw customers into their store,” said Lucy Moody, head of retail relations at Fundamentally Children.

”The secret shopping nights must be a huge hit with customers at Christmas and the imaginative window displays are just magical for children as they walk past.

“Birthdays are often a stressful time for parents so lovely to see they can take some of the pressure off with their party services.”
