Who are The Forgotten Toy Shop...

The Forgotten Toy Shop® is the brainchild of Karen Dorn. 

After several years of running the business alongside a full time job, Karen decided to take the plunge and run The Forgotten Toy Shop full time from 2015. 

Running the business on her own, from carefully selecting the stock for the store, to processing and packing every single order. Karen is very passionate about reigniting the magical joy of childhood play, and providing the highest quality of customer service. 

In 2016 Karen was joined with chief toy tester, Zachary, who quite often likes to help with the unpacking of new stock, but sometimes becomes a challenge when he wants everything for himself to play with!!
