Toy Stores in Mauritius

Bit of a strange question here!

We have been coming to Mauritius for years and each year we collect School Books, toys, art supplies etc and bring them to the island to give to children in an orphanage just south of Port Louis. We normally buy a load of stuff in Super U too.

This year, many colleagues and friends have given us money, and we we want to buy some bigger toys, like little bicycles, swings etc. As we have raised a substantial amount.

Does anyone know if there is a toy superstore, like Toysrus in Mauritius? The DIY store in La Croisette has a really small amount of playthings.

We don't drive, but can take a taxi to anywhere, or get a bus there and a taxi back!

Any help gratefully received!

We have never come across a retailer such as Toys r Us and its really been the hypermarkets such as Jumbo or SuperU that sells toys for kids.

I have seen a few small specialist shops in the past but they were also horrendously expensive.

There's a toy shop in Quatre Bornes but TBH it's very expensive and I wouldn't bother with that one. Also one at Cascavelle Shopping Village but again so overpriced and really not much selection.

I'm sure there must be other places for larger toys such as bikes but can't recall where they would be.

We have friends in Mauritius with children and always buy the toys/gifts for them in UK before we go, it means half a suitcase is taken up but at least we can get what we want.

Heard back from a friend this morning who tells me that Jumbo or Shoprite is where they go for toys, including bikes.

There's also a Chinese store at Goodlands new mall that sell toys, bikes etc.

Goodlands Shopping Village - as you are leaving Goodlands its on the right side.

We got our Christmas decorations there.

However like a lot of new malls in Mauritius it wasn't doing well so there was talk of it closing.

You could ask around.
