For budding physicists, chemists and vulcanologists there are lab sets, for would-be contractors there are lots of log-building and Meccano sets, for aspiring engineers there are Lego sets of endless variety.

The array of board, parlour, and card games is legion, appealing to a wide range of ages and stages. All the standard time-honoured board games are here, as well as some esoteric items seldom, if ever, seen elsewhere.
