Who doesn’t love a great toy store? Whether you have kids shopping with you or you are browsing solo, a toy store can inspire a new idea, encourage you to pick up a new game, and of course, bring a smile to any face. Online shopping has brought a new level of convenience to our shopping. Still, nothing beats a hands-on experience assisted by quality customer service. Not to mention a more tactile and fun way to find the perfect gift for someone you love – including yourself! If you live in the area, then these Colorado Springs toy stores offer an enhanced shopping experience for you and any smaller shopping buddies you may bring along with you!
Little Richard’s Toy Store is a part of the beloved Poor Richard’s restaurant, gift shop, and bookstore family in Colorado Springs! The original Poor Richard’s restaurant owners saw how popular their kid’s play area was. From that they saw a need for a whole store dedicated to toys and family-friendly fun. They offer a selection of puzzles and games to enjoy together, as well as classical, whimsical, and educational toys. They also sell stuffed animals, musical instruments, and science and art kits. Little Richard’s carries recognized and beloved brands, as well as unique toys made of recycled materials, natural wood, and organic cotton. Plus, they have a birthday club, so you can celebrate your little one’s special day every year with a little extra fun!
School Crossing Toy Station began as a teacher supply store over 24 years ago. It was founded by a local teacher and her husband, an engineer-turned-entrepreneur. After ten years of success, they found that some of their most popular products were actually toys! They built an addition to their location to include toys and games, as well as a coffee shop with beverages and sweet treats that allowed them to host birthday parties and create a toy shopping experience.
As e-commerce became more popular, they moved into a different space and built the Play Kingdom. Kids can explore, learn, and use their imaginations in this interactive play area. Today, School Crossing is a part toy store, part discovery, and play area (and don’t worry – they still host birthday parties!) You can shop anytime. But to take full advantage of the Play Kingdom, you will need to book an open play time online.
