About Us

'Jack in the Box' was founded in April 2009 in Wivenhoe, just outside Colchester. Jack in the Box's philosophy is to bring beautiful and/or amazing toys, from around the world, to children and grown-ups alike. Whether they are classic, retro, or cutting edge, each toy is carefully chosen based on its unique qualities.

Barnwell the Bear takes part in every window display, always dressed for the occasion. He has been a feature of Jack in the Box since it began, and has quite a following!

The magic of Jack in the Box is the promise that it's continually evolving, delighting everyone with more and more surprising toys.

Gorgeous wooden toys and loads of really unique wind up toys too, but my favourite toy has to be the snoring piglet! Had to buy it for my niece!

Amazing!

Best toy shop I have ever seen. Really stands out as being so very different. Such exciting toys, all so unusual, and wonderfully friendly owner! I became a regular in my 3rd year of university and miss it a great deal! Nothing can compare - wonderful! I personally recommend the fascinating collection of wind-up toys! Brilliant for children, but I (a 22 year-old recent graduate) think I love it just as much! WELL worth many, many visits.
