Fantastic selection of fun and unique toys and games for the kids. There is something magical about the store, it’s definitely worth a visit. Plenty of parking in front of the store along the street. And the prices were reasonable!

Interesting selection of quality toys. My sons wanted to stop in and look around. My friends daughter was having a birthday party and I had been planning on getting her a gift. There were a lot of interesting art projects, stickers, charms and finger puppets.

Been away from purchasing toys for about 15 yrs and appreciated the recommendations made to march grandnephews' interests. Great variety from which to chose. Staff narrowed it down quickly to a reasonable number of options. Location within shopping & wandering range of harbor.

As a child, I'd come here on vacation and spend hours; as an adult, I still see why. They have an excellent selection of toys and books and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
