A POUNDBURY toy shop that lets children try before they buy has won national recognition.

Boo’s Toy Shop, which only opened five months ago, has been named as Retailer of the Month for March 2014 by the Good Toy Guide.

Charlie Polley’s store allows children to play with and try products before they buy and offers items for newborns to teenagers.

She also runs a story time session every Saturday where children can enjoy a story.

Charlie said: “We don’t say no in Boo’s Toy Shop, –children are able to touch, play and ask questions about toys.”
