These are a few of our favorite things!
We've collected our top products of all time in one place to save you time and eliminate any and all doubts about our absolute favorite toys! These products and brands are not only best sellers but also represent some of the best quality and most thoughtful designs and intentions of any items we carry.
what do we mean by core collection?
These brands and products are near and dear to our hearts for a myriad of reasons, but the one thing in common with each one is how often we recommend, sell, and restock them. We've sold hundreds of some core collection items over just the last two years, and it's because we love what we do and customers love what we choose! As a small business run by a family you know and staff invested in kids, we take the time to get to know vendors, brands, products, and educational or therapeutic values of just about everything that comes through our store and are thrilled to pass along that knowledge to our customers.
See something that says out of stock? Be sure to add your email to our restock alert list or let someone know in store and you'll be contacted directly as soon as it comes back in. Everything in this collection is something we like to keep in stock, and it's usually only gone because we can't get any more at the time!
