The good folks at Toronto's Type Books have made this smashing stop-motion animation of their shelves mysteriously and mischievously reorganizing themselves after everyone has gone home. They position the video as a case for printed books, which it is, but it's also a great case for Type Books, which is an absolutely marvellous bookshop with great curated tables and a wicked kids' section. It's also smack in the middle of a really nice place to be: across the road is Trinity Bellwoods park (which, in the summer, includes a supervised kids' maker workshop with saws, hammers and other real tools, as well as music and costume play), and on the same block are The Japanese Paper Place (just what you'd expect!), White Squirrel Coffee (which does an amazing cold brew in the summer and great espresso year round) and Preloved, a store that makes beautiful clothes out of thrift-store finds, seconds and surplus textiles.
