Our nostalgia based toy store offers a unique and distinctive selection of toys for children of all ages. Founded by two museum professionals in 1992, our emphasis is on excellence in design and quality of materials blended with the whimsy of play. Appealing to grandparents, favorite aunts and uncles, or serious collectors, our store engages, entertains and reminds us all what the shopping experience should be.
Livingstone & Cavell is a return to the Christmas-morning enchantment of shiny steam engines, pick-up sticks, pedal cars and toy soldiers, offering a refreshing alternative to plastic-wrapped, mass-marketed products. The toys have been imported from around the world and chosen for their memorable qualities – great design, retro-appeal, and just plain fun.
These are the kind of toys you always wanted, no matter how old you are. Wind-up tin toys, intriguing puzzles, toy soldiers, beautiful dolls and the hilarious Fart Machine have shoppers laughing and pointing and leaving happily with bags of toy fun.Our toys are keepers,” says owner Edward Cavell “First they capture the imagination, then become treasured objects.”
Livingstone & Cavell invites you to play again. Wind up a tin robot, twitch a marble with your thumb, play a few bars of “Happy Birthday” on a toy piano, and share your memories with friendly staff.
Find a perfect gift for the new baby, the imaginative niece, or the thirty-year-old engineer who isn’t too old for Meccano. Or liven up your next office party with a bag full of flying, screaming monkeys. Those looking for a distinctive shopping experience can find one by contacting us at Livingstone & Cavell Extraordinary Toys in Calgary, AB.
