Q. My grandmother collects dolls, and I would like to send her a not-too-tacky Austrian doll for Christmas. Has anyone seen some nice dolls in a souvenir shop or toy store lately? (Posted 11/19/2012)
A. We found a very nice toy store at 14-15 Graben called Kober. It had some reasonably priced dolls and teddy bears in trachten that make good gifts. Also, a bunch of insanely expensive Stieff teddy bears. And a whole room full of trains (ditto).
B. Das Spielzeug in the Ringstrassengalerien in the 1st district is a very nice toy store, and carries non-tacky dolls in traditional Austrian clothing.
