Who We Are
As a former teacher, I carry well designed , safe toys, that I hand select from trusted sources with the highest standards. Classic to Trendy, for Babies to Tweens.
Unlike online warehouses or the big box stores, our seasoned Toy Experts have real hands-on experience and knowledge to share with you about our toys, games and books, arts & crafts and so much more!
Whether you need help finding the perfect gift, or just want us to gift-wrap and ship what you have chosen, we’re here to help. Call our Toy Experts at 847-441-5975 during our regular business hours or email us anytime.
“Play is Brain Food” and we work Extra Hard to find products that stimulate and encourage creative play and also have the appeal of something special. We carry the Classic Favorites and well as the New and Unusual, always looking for the best “PLAY VALUE” and “FUN FACTOR”. Come on in and let us show you what a difference the right toy can make in your child’s life!
We are a family-owned, community-friendly business and put great value on the reputation we have earned as an honest, trustworthy and responsive company that cares about our customers.
You have many choices when shopping. Please give us the opportunity to be your one-stop toy store.
