Shop on the Corner

Today is the June theme day for Corner Shop on http://www.cityphotoblog.com/. The first shop that came to mind was Obletter, the huge toy store in Karlsplatz. It sells toys from all over the world and for all ages. Of course, it specializes in toys made in Germany (as the picture shows), so you will find plenty of wooden toys, cars and airplanes, and model train sets. The store was established in the 1880s, and is one of the largest toy emporiums in Munich. One of the descriptions included the following, “The toys often look suspiciously capable of coming alive beneath someone’s Christmas tree, like the Nutcracker ballet.”
