Wonderful service. Extremely helpful in fitting old dolls with shoes and tights. Patient with grandparents choosing "just the right doll" for a young granddaughter. Dolls and toys you can't find anywhere else. Love the accessibility of all dolls - we can handle them to see how easy a young child can dress and undress. Always a delight to spend time in this store. Just wish it were closer.
I visited this store with my sister-in-law who was in search of a special doll for her daughter. Now, I have boys, so don't normally spend much time in the doll section, but I have never seen so many different types of dolls in one store. Sure beats what you can get at Toys R Us!
This store seems to specialize in more old fashioned toys, rather than the hottest new super hero toys. You can find trucks, rocking horses, baby toys and lots of little stocking stuffer type things here too. You can also get the giant outdoor playsets here.
A big bonus for grandparents: they offer a discount to AARP members (darn, I want the discount).
And they have a special teacher resource store that has its own special hours and is available to teachers.
PROS: Huge selection of dolls, imaginative toys, AARP discount
CONS: some of those toys are pretty expensive (but aren't they all)
This toy store has an excellent selection of toys, including many that cannot be found at the big box stores. There's also an on-site doll repair facility and many products for school teachers.
PROS: Great mom and pop toy store
CONS: Some items more pricey than big box stores
This is an old-fashioned toy store, quite a different experience than going to the local Toys R Us. They have the most spectacular dolls that I've ever seen. They also have a huge selection of Thomas the Train toys, including many items that you won't find anywhere else. If you need a gift or are looking for a special toy you will find it here. If you're shopping with your kids they have an amazing play area, and let me tell you that it won't be easy to get your kids out of this store. They also carry those large outdoor playsets and can arrange installation for you. They can also perform amazing repairs and restoration on old dolls. This store is something to see!
The Doll Hospital & Toy Soldier Shop has an incredible selection of toys. They have a great area for the kids to play while you're there. We couldn't get my son away from the slides. They have more Thomas The Train items than anywhere else I've seen. I'm also on the mailing list and get coupons periodically.
I love the Doll Hospital and Toy Soldier Shop. It's the best toy store I have been to because it has just about everything. They carry high quality name brand toys, along with an array of harder to find, unique toys. Whatever you are looking for, you are likely to find it here.
In addition, they have a great teacher store in the same building - providing educational materials that are useful for both parents and teachers.
The service has always been great. The prices are reasonable and the selection is superb. Not to mention the store has indoor play structures and stations for children to play on while you shop. Truly designed with the child in mind!
