Many gift guides you'll find are laden with "hot" toys that are heavily marketed and in our opinion, just not that great. We have high standards for toys and expect a lot of them. We put a lot of time and effort into sourcing the best toys that we believe will foster imagination and creativity, and deliver play value far beyond Christmas Day. Children learn through play and providing the proper tools to facilitate that learning is a privilege we take very seriously. While having a lot of fun of course!
Bunnies by the Bay is a new line in the store that features absolutely beautiful plush toys and infant accessories like these adorable and incredibly soft bunny booties. We only wish they came in adult sizes.
Calico Critters are always a hit. Critters are poseable, and the Outdoor Sports Set has a variety of sports equipment for imaginative play. We love that Calico Critters are appropriate for a broad range of ages increasing the play value. The Stablemates Breyer Acres playset is another favourite with an awesome tractor and accessories for feeding and caring for the animals.
