Went in to placate our 2 youngest Thinking that we would buys few overpriced trinkets and be on our way. Boy were we surprised! The store, while small, has a huge selection of unique toys at reasonable prices but what completely floored us was that it also had a full playground, activity room and sandboxes that were free to use....

A wide selection of toys and a very kid-friendly environment. The outdoor play area is unique and a fine place to have children burn some energy.

I was in Taos with my wife and adult daughter a few weeks back, when we wandered off the main plaza into a far corner where we saw a sign that read, simply, "Toy Store."

I visited Twirl with another adult. Maybe it would have been more impressive if we were kids or if we'd had kids with us. We didn't even try to play in the play space. We're short ladies, but we probably would have been ushered out. Mostly we were there to look around and for my friend to buy a little... More

Twirl is the coolest toy store I have experienced! The space is very inviting and exciting to explore and then to discover the play ground area behind the store--amazing! The staff was exceptional, very friendly and warm to the kids. This is a must-do when in Taos with kids.

Upstairs is an activity room with Legos, tinker toys, and more. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This was our first visit but won't be... More

We didn't have any children with us, but this is a nice toy shop. It has a small play ground outside.
