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

I recently went with my family, for a visit to the new Explore Store! The kids had such a great time! So much for them to do, from playing with a lizard, to drawing on their chalk boards with cool 3-D chalk! What a store!! The staff were so very helpful! The stuff that you find in this store, you...

Went to Elephant thought with my mom and got lots of cool stuff. I have a volcano in a jar and learned lots of things about reptiles I did not know. Want to learn more can't wait to go back.

I recently went with my son and daughter to Elephant Thoughts for a birthday party. The science show was highly entertaining and taught new science concepts to both my kids and I. All of the kids loved taking pictures with the reptiles and were sad when they had to leave. The store is also entertaining, it has lots of fun... More
