Great selection of toys! The play area was unbelievable! Bubbles, sandbox, water play fountain, scooters, and never ending fun. Definitely a surprise in Taos. Kids loved it.

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.

This toystore was an unexpected surprise. It has an exceptional selection of both whimsical and educational toys. It also has a huge playground, a fountain for kids to play in, and a tree house. 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

There are also lots of hands-on options as you explore the toys. And then you walk outside into the play area and find a treasure trove of play spaces and activities for... More

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

They have a FREE play area in the back for kids and the store actually has decent prices on most items. One of our favorite places to go in Taos!

Taos is not really a family-oriented destination and I looked hard to find an activity that I thought the kids (12, 11, and 7) would enjoy. I saw an ad for this location in one of the tourist guides. It is a very interesting toy store with an internal courtyard outdoor playground plus an upstairs indoor craft area. There are... More

The staff is lovely. The store is incredible. The play area is much needed after a long day of shopping. The kids will love the area, and a shop just for them! The toys are mostly things you will not find a big box retailers, but are made with quality and higher standards. Thought provoking toys that will help you... More
