Birss in Partick had a grand toy section, as did Lewis's on Argyll Street... but they were parts of other stores.
Independants I remember are Sportoys on Byers Road, which was a fave, was good and then there was a place on Gt Western Road at Park Road called Babyfair or somesuch. Did more than baby stuff in its earlier days... Used to have a big sign up saying "Toy Store for 60 Years" or something. I think The Walrus and the Carpenter was a 70's place, as were Modatoys on both CLarence Drive (now Peckam's) and Hyndland Road.
Bound to be more... but that's all that comes to mind without thinking more on it.
Not forgetting The Clyde Model Dockyard in Argyll Arcade of course!-there was also a fairly major toyshop in Sauchiehall street whose name escapes me at present but which gained notoriety due to a lorry running down the opposite hilly street and ending up inside the shop!
