Vilac toys and Le Bon Marché

A few months ago, at the Alameda Flea, Hudson fell in love with this vintage pedal car, Vilac’s Fire Jeep. Look at that determination!

I found myself admiring all of the Vilac toys while we were in Paris this past week. While expensive, the beautifully painted, all-wood toys seemed like such well-made little treasures. The company has been making toys in the Jura mountains of France since 1911.



The children’s floor in the grand, old department store Le Bon Marche had me looking for excuses to bring home presents. If you’re looking for a fun place to shop in Paris with a little one (a place where you’ll be equally enchanted with the adult sections), I recommend a stop.
