It’s busy, it’s stressful, it’s full of people in panic mode, but there’s something uniquely magical about visiting a toy shop at Christmas.

What Is It Like To Run A Toy Shop At Christmas?

00:00:00 / 00:00:00

A new documentary, The Toy Shop, lifts the lid on what life is like for the shop owners!

Following sixteen independent Irish toy retailers across a year, we learn about the magic behind the doors, as well as the issues they face.

One of the featured shops is McGreevy’s Toys Direct in Westport. The shop, which is over 100 years old, is in the fourth generation of the family, and recently made the move online for the first time.

Speaking to Dermot and Dave, Donard McGreevy explained what makes the shop so special, how this past year has been, and just what brings the joy to the four walls of the toy shop!

You can catch the chat by clicking play above, and The Toy Shop will be on RTE One on December 22nd at 9:30
