And which time of the year takes us back to this time? Advent time, of course! Who doesn’t remember the excitement, the smile on children’s faces when they open presents on Christmas morning and find the toys that they have been longing for?
This year’s Advent Zagreb combines these two things: toys and Christmas. But not any toys! This year, all over the city of million hearts you will be greeted by over-dimensioned toys that used to be made in Zagreb, whether it’s classic Disney toys from Biserka factory or stuffed toys from Vavra’s workshop.
But we will not only hold on to the past. Advent is there to help the local community and stimulate togetherness, and is there a better way to do this than to invite local craftsmen and craftswomen who specialize in toys to present themselves to the visitors?
These hardworking and creative hands create the most beautiful childhood memories on a daily basis, and they are authentic, unique and didactic. Their work is more than just play for our young ones, and its likable designs are even sweeter once we learn that they are made of sustainable, eco-friendly materials.
Take a walk through the city streets and look inside their stores, visit their online shops and social media. We guarantee that here you will find the perfect Christmas gift for your children!
