Not to be missed if you have children with you. The toy store is amazing (and reasonably priced). The adjacent play yard is unbelievable! Adults can sit in the shade and watch the kids play. Kids can even walk in the fountain. There is a craft room above the place yard with play kitchen, legos, magnetic tiles, crayons/paper, etc. And... More

This place has a fantastic set of three free play spaces for children of all ages. Playing at Twirl is what our 10 and five year old most remember about our recent trip to New Mexico!!!

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...

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
