Gift Shop at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park



checking out the stuffed toys


stuffed toy snakes...

After our safari tour, we stopped to checked the gift shop at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park. I was very impressed because of their prices. Most of the gift shop that I had been was really a ripped off when it comes to their prices. 

But, Lake Tobias, their prices were very reasonable. I hope all gift shop would have the same way too. Not to over price their products, not to take advantage of the tourists bucks!

Anyway, the kids had the fun exploring the gift shop. Our daughter got an elephant that came with 4 markers. Our 19 month old son was crazy over wheels, he got an ATV toy. We did not leave the shop empty handed. :)

There is always a gift shop so we can spend our money isn't there. That looks like a nice gift shop though... The stuffed toy snakes look like they would work in front of doors to keep the cold air out in the winter.

That is great that the gift shop was not overpriced. Most of the ones I have visited are, for sure.

Gift shops have so many cool things!! I just wish the prices were a little lower. But what a fun adventure!

My kids (and me) always hit the gift shops at zoos and safari parks. My son loved the cool things he could find like shark teeth and my daughter and I loved all the cute cuddly animals.

It's so refreshing to hear that there are gift shops out there that don't take advantage of tourists. When we visit places, I often avoided gift shops and grabbing a souvenir just for that reason.

Aww adorable. I love the snakes! We don't really do gift shops in towns but do like to hit the local shopping areas for authentic items.

Corinne Schmitt said...

That's awesome that the gift shop prices were reasonable. I agree, usually the prices in shops like those are outrageous. Hopefully you were able to find some great souvenirs.

Gift shops are always so expensive. I love to browse around but rarely buy anything.

It sounds like a great gift shop. I love visiting them when we go to attractions. It is fun to bring home a souvenir.

This looks like an excellent gift shop! Sometimes there is only a handful of items that aren't appealing to kids, but that doesn't seem to be the case here!

Dov Shapira said...

Gift shops can really be a big pain when it comes to prices.

Finding a gift shop that doesn't try to squeeze every last dime from their customers is a true gift! Those awesome stuffed snakes would go over really well here at my house!

I always have to stop at the gift shop wherever we go as well. Doesn't matter where but as long as there's a gift shop I want a souvenir of my trip. :)

Gift shops tend to be expensive but I will buy something if the place I went to is worth remembering!

Sometimes I feel the kids have more fun at the gift shop that the actual park.
