After 40 years, our shoppe is bigger and better than ever!
We love our toy shoppe so we like to freshen it up a bit every so often. We started in August with a little bit here and a little bit there. The more we puttered around, the more we wanted to do. Finally, we just decided to go all the way. We took down walls, repainted just about everything, redesigned the shelving, brought in fresh flooring and added new furnishings. It was a huge undertaking, but very exciting, and now our shoppe looks terrific!
Of course, with all this extra room we have more fine dolls and Teddy bears in the shoppe than ever! We'll be able to display many of the life-size Steiff Studio animals that are too large in most stores. As the premiere Annette Himstedt dealer, there is plenty of room to display our selection of her remarkable child dolls. We've also reserved an area for rare vintage editions. And the amount of R. John Wright creations on display has expanded dramatically - both their current and vintage editions. We have a sensational display of Madame Alexander's Wendy, Cissy, Cissette and other dolls in our custom, Madame Alexander showcases.
Barely a week after we finished the remodel, a doll club arrived to enjoy their club outing at our shoppe. It was a wonderful time. The shoppe is now very spacious and we are thrilled to invite doll clubs, Teddy bears clubs and Girl Scout troops to visit. Come by if you are in the area... we would love to see you! Call us toll free 1 800 447-7995 to arrange something for your club.
Special thanks to Kevin, Peter and all the other Toy Shoppe staff who pitched in to help. Great job!

We feel it is most important to visit a shoppe where you can touch, hold and hug the Teddy bear that will become your life-long friend!
Tucked throughout our shoppe are small gems that are friendly, fun and amazing. We offer such a wide range of characters and artistic styles that there is truly something for everyone to enjoy at The Toy Shoppe!
