Twirls is a pleasant and welcoming environment. We found both locals and tourist here with their kids. There is a free play area in the back where kids can play and burn off energy for hours. We treated our 5 year old to some great toys. We came here two days in a row and my son is still talking... More

We came by for a baby music class while visiting Taos. Wonderful! It was free, fun, and a great way to break up a day when you're vacationing with a baby in tow. I really enjoyed meeting some local mamas and getting the scoop on baby-friendly things to do in town. The outdoor play area looks amazing, and would be... More

Great place to take your kids. There are two differnt but connected outdoor sections. My kids loved both. In one there was a climbing playground area and little bikes and things to ride. In the other, there was a "treehouse" and things to make music with. There is an upper room full of thins to play with, such as a... More

I priced one thing in the store on Amazon and found it cheaper in the store! Lots of fun things inside. Free cookie plate inside plus a clean bathroom. The playground outside was tons of fun and the playroom upstairs was too. Go for a visit, even send an adult with the kids while everyone else shops in the plaza.

This place is odd. The store and outdoor spaces are works of art (colorful, creative and fun), and the selection is amazing, if a bit pricy. The contrast between the store itself and the workers was jarring, however. When you think "toy store," you think "happy and friendly," but the staff was anything but. We were not greeted by any...

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the space, and extremely dismayed that your experience with our staff was not up to par. While I can assure you that an experience like this is the exception, that is in no way intended to excuse the fact that you left us disappointed. We apologize, and I would ask that you return when you... More

We have many, many grandchildren. When they come visit, they insist on coming to,Twirl. Lots of stuff for the kids to do and most excellent toy store that has items one would never find in a "big box" toy store

The outdoor play space was cool and th store was nice, but the parents who were there were awful. We overheard a conversation about the pros and cons of recreational synthetic heroin use...In the play space! I think I would just take my son to a local park instead

Thank you for your review of Twirl. We're happy to hear you thought Twirl was cool but concerned to hear about your experience. We too would have been shocked to have overheard the conversation you did. In eight years, we've never had an experience like that and would encourage anyone who does to immediately alert a member of staff so... More

As grandparents, my wife and I are always on the lookout for high quality, educational, and fun-provoking toys/games. We found that in spades at the Twirl Toystore in Taos. What a treat. Best toy store I've ever been in.
