We loved this place. This is definitely the result of grown ups that are having way too much fun !! The kids loved the playground outside that was filled with several activities to keep the kids busy while the adults relaxed in the chairs provided. The store is stocked with a massive amount of toys for all ages. Thankfully we... More

If you have kids, a visit to Twirl is a must. Not only do they have a fantastic selection of games and toys, many of which we had not seen elsewhere, but the outdoor play garden is an absolutely charming area, perfect for relaxing while the kids have fun exploring inside. An outstanding shop; so glad we found this.

We had such a great time! And the workers were incredibly helpful and patient with me and my children. If you have anyone under the age of 12, this is a must see/stop!

This toy store reminded me of the amazing toy stores that we had when we were kids, before everything went to mindless, identical chains. There is nothing generic here. You won't find a trace of Barbie, Bratz or Transformers here. And the most amazing thing was that the kids were LOVING it. I heard many kids, from young to older,... More

They had spirograph! I hadn't seen that is ages. That and the smell of crayons takes me back. What about you? You will find something here to both throw you back in time to your childhood and kick you into the future with something new and interesting.

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.
