Benjamin Pollock's Toyshop located in Covent Garden in London has been in the business of delight for over 100 years! Benjamin Pollock was first introduced to toy theatres when he married Eliza Reddington, who inherited her father’s Theatrical Print Warehouse. From his original dusty shop in Hoxton, Mr. Pollock brought joy to local children, lovers of nostalgia and well know actors such as Charlie Chaplin. Author Robert Louis Stevenson was delighted by the shop, immortalizing it in an essay ‘If you love art, folly or the bright eyes of children, speed to Pollock’s’.
