Nicknamed “Didis” as a child in Bulgaria, owner Diana Rudman opened her high-quality European toy store in Bedford, New York, in 2001, moving it to the Upper East Side in 2003. A display case up front holds the shop’s toy-monkey mascot, and toys for newborns through age 6 are organized by brand in the gallery-like space. Contemporary Italian pull toys by Sevi and Trudi and traditional striped racecars from French brand Vilac are among the shop’s more expensive offerings. Also in stock is a wide range of Legos, dolls from French brand Corolle, and soft objects for babies by Kaloo. Some of the most popular items are Papo’s wood-castle and pirate-ship sets, with separately sold figurines of horses, equestrians, and queens. Didis also special orders the solid, inventive line of furniture by Haba, which takes six to eight weeks to arrive from Germany—an anxious eternity for a kid eagerly waiting for his very own bunk bed with a slide!
