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.

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

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!

Thanks for your review and for recognizing that we want all ages to enjoy and experience Twirl. We're big fans of the bathroom too. We should really turn into a storage closet for extra space but we just can't bring ourselves to do so, it's so beautiful and we'd much rather share it with visitors like you! More

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.
