About Us


Welcome to our home on the web!  We are a local, family owned and operated, independent toy store.  We have been in business in downtown Menlo Park since 1999. In 2007 we moved down the street from a smaller location to our present location a block from El Camino Real. In 2022 we expanded to two locations with the purchase of Adventure Toys & Teaching Supplies, which has been a fixture of Los Altos since 1986.

We offer a wide range of products for children from newborns to adults - anyone young at heart. Knowledgeable staff are always available to help you choose age-appropriate gifts and we offer complimentary gift wrapping. We strive to make your shopping experience a joyful one.
