A very interesting place to visit with family. We got to meet Ringo and Casper, two frolicking lemurs and also a friendly little ferret. In addition, we were able to see snakes, turtles and several reptiles. I would highly recommend visiting this place with children who will be delighted to play with the toys, try an ice cream and maybe... More

I don't often leave reviews, but I wanted to help spread the word about this amazing place. The Elephant Thoughts explore store was a great stop on our way to the village at Blue Mountains. Our little girl loved all the amazing animals, especially Ringo and Casper, (the Lemurs). In addition to all the amazing animals that are on display,... More

I had the pleasure of dropping into to a hidden treasure on hwy 26 just as you enter Collingwood this weekend called ELEPHANT THOUGHTS. I was taking my kids for a weekend holiday and on the way into town we dropped in. The first thing you see is the cutest lemurs. They entertained us as the romped around their enclosure.... More

Our family visited Elephant Thoughts during a trip. The staff was wonderful, and a lovely young man showed us each of the animals, answering every question we had and allowing us to touch many of them. The store, itself, had so many great toys and cool, educational things. If I had hundreds of dollars, I would spend it all there.... More

This the most amazing toy store ever! It is an experience not shopping! My 4 ( 4, 5, 8 & 10) thought it was great? Lemurs Ringo and Casper were very entertaining as was the ferret! Turtles, snakes, lizards and a big iguana were also big hits with my crew. Then of course all the interesting toys, great toys, not... More

I drive pass this store everyday as I commute to Collingwood for work. I finally decided I would drop in quickly to see what it was all about, but ended up staying for the better part of an hour. They have all sorts of animals in there from Lizards to Lemurs. The store carries a bunch of "learning oriented" toys... More

I wasn't sure what this place was about until I heard it from some co-workers. I took my boys to the Elephant Thoughts Explore Store and it was a little diamond in the rough. They have some reptiles, 2 fuzzy lemurs and a ferret. The store has unique toys geared towards education for most ages. Not sure why this place... More

Wow! My family and I stopped in to see what Elephant Thoughts was, and I was amazed! We walked into the building and were greeted by two Lemurs!!! Then they had a hallway full of reptiles leading to an amazing store full of great educational toys! My 3 year old daughter always asks if we can visit the Lemurs now,... More

I loved the whole educational concept of the store while still remaining a very fun place to explore. The Lemurs and reptiles were worth stopping for all by themselves but the store was also full of amazing toys that will help kids better understand nature and the world. We are coming back next year and spending our teaching supply money... More

I have driven by this store many a time wondering what it was all about. Finally one day stopped in with my two young daughters and couldn't believe it. Kids loved it. They are not just a store but really an attraction at the same time. They have two adorable lemurs that are apparently used for their educational programs, turtles,... More
