Melbourne Daily Photo
Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Geppetto's Toy Shop
The brightly coloured toys and kites outside drew me in and as I stood in Geppetto's toy shop, I was transported back to childhood. Forget the latest X Box and battery operated gizmos with bells and whistles - here are the true toys. When toys were made to last and a child's play ran rampant with his imagination. Puppets and marionettes, puzzles, games, kaleidoscopes and spinning tops - all the toys of yesterday that kept children enthralled for hours.
The next time you're down in Sorrento, pop into Geppetto's and see for yourself. They also have shops in Sassafras and Olinda.
