I was shocked to find out Argosy Toys are a small independently run toy shop owned and run by Paul. Having worked there for close to 30 years is pretty impressive for any toy shop! It must be lovely for the locals growing up, recognising Paul behind the counter and going on to take their own children in to buy toys too.

Argosy Toys donate a big chunk of their small profits to SOS Domestic Abuse, local schools and Southend Hospitals Neptune Ward. I admire anyone who uses their small business to support causes like these and hearing Argosy toys could do with some extra local support, felt the need to share with you all this gem!

    What a beautiful shop front and it looks really inviting! It’s great that they help charities and I wish there were more independent toy shops like this x #familyfun

    I haven't seen this one as I'm at the other end of the country but I do love it when you have local toy shops. There was one here that I remember going to when I was little and took my son in when he was small too. Unfortunately it closed its last year and its so sad. Thank you for joining the #FamilyFunLinky x
