This is a toy store that does a good job of keeping up with the latest local trends. It's great for birthday parties, especially if you've run out of wrapping paper - they will wrap while you wait.

If yiou need a bathing suit, especially off season, this is a great place. The rest of the store is limted as it tries to handle a variety of sports and accessories, but the swim ship is unbeatable.

Palo Alto Sports and Toy offers high quality toys. They also have a huge swim department offering suits, shoes, a large selection of goggles, swim team supplies, etc. There are also soccer, baseball and other sport supplies.

It's funny that a kid oriented town like Palo Alto doesn't have more sport shops for younger kids. This has always been our fallback. Staff is pretty friendly and we always end up leaving with something we originally did not intend to buy.

I have used Palo Alto Sport and Toy World to find sporting goods when I needed personal service. They help fit cleats and shin guards and are knowledgable about their products. While you're there, pick up a birthday present or craft item.

For a smalll store they pack in an amazing selection. I think the secret is that they know their community and they know their products. When I go in looking for something, whether it's balls, or shoes, or mitts, or swim gear they always have exactly what I'm looking for with a selection to choose from. They excel in both toys and sporting goods.

They are a perenniel winner of the Palo Alto Weekly's "Best Of" competition. They're a friendly, family-run, community oriented business. It's always a pleasure to shop there.

The only things they don't really have are large items that take up too much space. I"ll go to Big 5 for those.

PROS: great selection of toys and sporting gear
CONS: small store, can't have everything

There is nothing like walking to an old fashioned toy store with your child. At Palo Alto Sport Shop, the children are welcome, and there are even touchable displays for them.

Yes, they cannot compete with the bulk of merchandise at a chain store, but they make up for it in selectivity, editing out some of the junk that is available for kids. They add the personal touch to their service as well. And the free wrapping jobs make rushing in just before a birthday party a cinch.

Prices are slightly higher than chain competitors, but it's worth it to avoid the crowds. Plus, if you watch the local papers and Children's Theatre programs, coupons for their store abound.

My family regularly shops at this store for all of our toy needs as well as many sporting goods. They always seem to have what we need for our sports without having to dig through racks and racks of things. They staff is always helpful. I would recommend this store to anyone.

Palo Alto Sport Shop and Toy World is located in the heart of downtown Palo Alto. Easy to get to with lots of parking nearby. The toy selection is very good with many items that you won't find in the large chain toy stores. My children always find something of interest and the pricing is good. I haven't done much shopping in the sports supply area, but the entire 2nd floor is devoted to swimming.
