Morag: is this the Nickelodeon that used to be in the Walrus & the Carpenter?

This seems the most appropriate place to ask this question seeing as the Walrus and the Carpenter may be the answer.

I was born in November 1973 and have quite a few memories from the summer of 1976 and my pre school years. One of these is visiting a toy shop with my Mum. This place had wooden floors on two levels. There were toys behind brightly lit glass panels and, most amazing to my eyes, loads of those mobile toys (imagine Zebedee from the Magic Roundabout with the spring at the top) which seemed to be perpetually moving.

Neither of my parents can remember this? If anyone can help I would be very grateful and will buy you a couple of drinks should we meet at an HG event.

The Clyde Model Dockyard seems to have shut in the early 1970's which rules that out.

Are you definate about the floors on two levels?
I don't think the Walrus was big enough for that unless they had a raised platform area at the back but I don't think they had that either. Memory can play tricks with you however I'm sure some of the big kids here will remember something :wink:
Yes HH,I know
