I noticed something in Potters Children's shop that I hadn't seen in other toy and children's stores. The boys and girls toy sections were very distinctly set up and very, very...conventional. What brought it to my attention was some magnet words labelled, "Girl Talk" - consisting of: perfume, bubbles, dancing...etc. Kinda gross.
The girls section contained craft sets for knitting, making your own fairy journal, painting your own dream horse, and the boys side had work benches, motorcycles and drag racers.
Positive features include the educational toys, like science themed activities, and the cheap area at the front for miscellaneous plastic items and bouncing putty. There was an impressive marble collection near the front and some wooden trains...so perhaps Potters is purposely set up as a toy store from the 1950s.
