Once upon a time every suburb and country town had its very own toy shop. Not the big super-size stores of today, but small locally-owned concerns, often situated in quaint old-fashioned buildings with oodles of atmosphere, and chock-a-block full with all the playtime goodies that any child could want or need. Although they were only a fraction of the size of today’s massive mega-stores, they possessed an ambiance of mystique that is today, all but absent, despite the plethora of merchandise that their modern counterparts purvey. Recently, while passing through Sydney’s domestic airport terminal I stumbled upon a bright little shop which, for some reason, morphed me back to a time long ago, when as a child the great pleasure of my life was scouring the shelves of my small local toy store in search of tiny treasures.

Situated next to the Food Hall at Sydney Airport’s Terminal 2 (Domestic Terminal), Kaboom not only stocks a wide assortment of high quality toys, but also a great range of children’s books, travel accessories and quirky collectables that are perfect for hard-to-buy for friends and relatives, as well as restless young travel companions. Based on my personal experience, I can guarantee that adults will love this place as much as the kids.

Kaboom is the kind of store that every airport needs, and hopefully in the future branches will open throughout the country. If you’ve ever travelled with young children then you’ll understand the need to be well-prepared with toys, books other and entertainment for the flight ahead, and this store provides a novel selection of boredom-busters for children of all ages. Fluffy toys of every description sit on shelves alongside Tosy Disco robots, Hot Wheels model cars, Pink Poppy products, Siku models, sturdy Fisher Price playthings, craft kits, Dora the Explorer stuff, Barbie dolls, Disney merchandise and much more. Grown-ups with a soft spot for their long-lost childhood may also be tempted by the store’s great range of retro toys and games, the Schleich plastic animals (believe it or not, these are prized by collectors) and the delectable Pez lolly dispensers.

If you’re the parent of a young bookworm or two, the range of high-quality children’s books was extremely impressive as well. For very young kids, the wide assortment of reading material included the ever-popular Mr Men series and Little Golden Books, while there’s also a terrific range of both fiction and non-fiction titles for older children and teens, as well as some very good activity books that will easily keep them occupied during a long flight.

Other great products that kids will enjoy, both during their holiday and back at home, include classic card games, domino sets, groovy kid-friendly headphones, loads of cool jewellery and even kids’ sunglasses. For young travel veterans, Kaboom also purveys children’s travel pillows, cute backpacks and great little wheelie suitcases.

In conclusion, whether you need to buy a last-minute gift for friends and family members, would like some new diversions to keep your kids quiet during a long flight, or simply want to spoil yourself with a new fluffy toy or favourite childhood treat, Kaboom is the place to head for. A one-of-a-kind retail outlet, if you’re nostalgic for toy-shops from days long-gone-by, you’re sure to find this cheerful little shop as charming as I did. Unfortunately Kaboom doesn’t have a website, so if you want to check it out you’re going to have to visit the store in person.
