Today I’m about to introduce you to one of the gems in Porvoo Old Town: toy shop Riimikko (in the Finnish language the word ‘riimi‘ means rhyme and that’s what I interpret the title to resonate).
The shop is located in Välikatu, near my favourite cafe Helmi and the well-known Brunberg factory shop.
Even though the prices are kinda high (understandable for an artisan shop), it’s always completely free to step in and wonder…
Toy shop ‘Riimikko’ has several smaller rooms (as many of the old buildings do) filled with treasured details that surely will fascinate children of all ages. Including me.
I just wish I could live here and get to use the stairs into the mysterious-looking rustic balcony! I also absolutely love the retro posters.
The simple-looking old door will lead you to a nostalgic trip back to your childhood – or provide an adventure for the younger generations.
