RAAR Emporium is a creative toy, craft and gift shop in the heart of St. Ives, Cornwall, established in 2014.
We sell a range of retro and modern products including craft kits, classic wooden toys, books, games and puzzles. There are lots of sample products out to play with. They are carefully sourced from here in Cornwall and from around the world, chosen for their design, quality, longevity and play factor.
Sitting alongside the quirky selection of toys and activities are several ranges of handmade creatures including monsters, mermaids, birds, flora and fauna.
RAAR aims to provide a fun interactive experience, beautiful toys to help develop young minds and kits to promote traditional craft skills and encourage creativity.
We also stock a carefully curated selection of gift items for adults which can include homewares, gadgets, jewellery and cards.
RAAR Emporium is also the home of St. Ives Pottery which offers wheel-throwing pottery experiences for all ages and abilities.
