    We stumbled across this store while driving through the island, and I had remembered reading about it in a guide somewhere. On a whim, we decided to stop, and I fell in love. SO many great wooden toys...  more »

    A little disappointed given the write ups. Always on the look out for unique kids stuff for grand daughter and niece. Some wooden toys but very commercial and not unique. Cool workshop in back but jus...  more »

    This is an awesome place to come to! I was going to buy the light up Tetris blocks, but the lady working was very honest with me about how they didn't work very well. I really appreciated her honesty so I didn't end up wasting money on them. She has a wicked awesome sense of humour too! I also really enjoyed visiting Emily and Charlotte, the bunnies. Because of my wonderful experience here, I will definitely be a returning customer when I'm back on the island.

    This is a shop full of treasures! Each shelf is populated with toys, games and figurines that would be difficult to find anywhere else. This includes a massive variety of faerie sculptures. It's more than just a toy store, though; it lives up to its name with a workshop in back that hosts toy making classes. The outside of the shop is even more playful and whimsical than the toys within, including gnomes, animals, and fairy tale characters dotting the outside of the building, a playground and a little, hidden path.

    Interesting place to make a quick stop. Some nice homemade toys; however, you'll pay for it. Example, a plastic pirate ship from Walmart will cost about $30-$40. The wooden handmade equivalent here will be $80-$90. In the yard, there are a few animal statues that kids may enjoy.

    Unique shop with a little something for everyone. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Prices are in the moderate range but some items, you won't find anywhere else.

    A cornacopia of educatiomal and fun children's toys, a plethora of statues of fairies and dragons and the best ice cream, pirates bounty. Salted caramel and black licorice. I assure you, it and the store are a must.
