Giddy Goat Toys is a traditional independent children’s toy shop located in the suburb of Didsbury in south Manchester. It opened in September 2012 when Amanda took over the existing toy shop on Albert Hill Street, Didsbury. The name was changed from Rumpus to Giddy Goat Toys and happily all the staff stayed on providing continuity of service and experience to the estabilished customer base.
Between them the staff have a great number of years experience of toy retail, many of Giddy Goat Toys' staff had worked in Rumpus for several years, whilst Amanda had previously co-owned Monkey Puzzle Toys in Chorlton and before that had worked for Little Nut Tree Toys so has been in the toy industry since 2008. Furthermore, all the staff are themselves parents so understand the importance of giving gifts you can be proud of and receiving gifts that are good quality and that you are happy for your child to play with.
In choosing which toys to stock from the vast array available, the staff at Giddy Goat Toys aspire to provide toys which are both good quality and which offer lots of play value whilst also giving value for money.
They have toys for a variety of budgets and interests and the staff are always happy to offer advice to customers based on the interests of the recipient they are buying for and the budget of the customer.
