This place has everything kids love, all the toys, clothes, games, costumes, dancewear, you name it. Prices are really good and it's lots of fun. The people in the shops really seem to like kids and aren't worried if they're loud or excited.

It was quite cramped and hot when we visited but if you've got children then avoiding it is futile. The upstairs shops seemed to lack atmosphere but there was plenty to excite downstairs. Did I get out without spending money?......of course not.

There are some very lovely people working in the stores at the Kids Market. Unfortunately, they're in an old and cramped building surrounded by over-priced, very loud attractions.

The kids market is my secret hero! I take my little guy here and spend a little time playing video games or looking at puppets, kites, Lego and other great knowledge toys. Then I check him into the play area and have some adult time....More

The kids market is a fun destination for kids and the people who love them and want/need to buy for them. The arcade on the 2nd floor is fun and you win tickets that you can trade in for crappy, cheap, plastic toys. The toy...More

Tons of interesting and unique stores. And a jungle gym for kids under 12. Hard not to spend a few dollars.

This could be great! The stores aren't bad -- there are just nothing special. And it's just a building with some arcade games and a very overpriced McDonald's like play structure. Total waste of time. It could have been so great. We had more fun...More

This place has several floors of over-priced kids stuff that you can buy. One the 2nd floor there is a games area, fast food area, and a dirty slide for young toddlers to play on. There is an area where older kids can play in...More

Granville Island & Fairview
One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
visitors, some of who are there to shop the fresh
