Miffy Shop

If you’re visiting Amsterdam and have little kids (or you have friends who do), a visit to the Miffy store on the Scheldestraat is highly recommended. Miffy (known as ‘Nijntje’ in Dutch) is the sweet little bunny designed in 1955 by Dutch artist Dick Bruna – who quickly became a famous character that is now recongnisable across the world.

The wonderful collection of Miffy books convey a broad range of topics (including art, school, childbirth and death) through sweet and simple stories designed specifically for young children. The books have been translated to more than 50 languages — and the Miffy store offers a good selection of these books in a number of different languages, including English. You can also peruse plenty of other Miffy merchandise such as clothes, toys, home wares, cards and accessories. It’s a great place to find cute Dutch gifts for little ones that are slightly more unique than the stereotypical souvenirs from Amsterdam.
