Established in Highgate for more than 20 years Rainbow sell traditional toys, games, gifts and a small selection of clothes for new-borns babies and children to up to 10 years old. The dressing up section is a particular treat with lots of outfits, masks and face paints which children will love to disguise themselves with. And, if you are throwing a party, they can make party bags to order.
