Wonderful selection of toys that stimulate kids imaginations. It was raining the day we visited, so we didn't get to look around the playground. It looked really neat. This is not a store with a huge selection of different toys. We found several unique items for our baby grandson. Saleswoman seemed totally disinterested in customers, which made overall experience kind... More

They had all of the old (new) toys and toys that use the imagination. In the back there is a wonderful play place for the kids.

We have adult children, but were lured in by the fact this place is on the registry of historical buildings. We just walked around inside in awe of the architecture and then the updated creative touches. Loads of toys, a great playground in the back for kids and I loved the bathroom!

Most unique toy store in the Midwest! The complimentary playground area is really special and very creative! Even if you don't purchase anything there are a couple of signs that kindly ask for a donation to maintain the space. Awesome experience for the kids! Thanks!!

This is one of those wonderful toy stores that actually has toys you WANT to buy your kids! (As opposed to the cheap China made junk from Wal Mart that your kid will outgrow in less than a year.). The store itself is several different rooms and you almost feel like an explorer because of the way it is set... More

Walking the plaza we saw the sign for Twirl and was expecting the normal tourist trap toy store. My 3 year old didn't even look in the store, he was drawn like a moth to light to the back of the store. Before I knew it, he kicked off his boots and was climbing. I was absolutely stunned by the...

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
