Nothing spectacular or new. Looking for something for our grandson who was turning one, May better for older children.

We hope that if you find yourself back here, you will give us another chance and that your experience will be on a par with our... More

This place is odd. The store and outdoor spaces are works of art (colorful, creative and fun), and the selection is amazing, if a bit pricy. The contrast between the store itself and the workers was jarring, however. When you think "toy store," you think "happy and friendly," but the staff was anything but. We were not greeted by any...

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the space, and extremely dismayed that your experience with our staff was not up to par. While I can assure you that an experience like this is the exception, that is in no way intended to excuse the fact that you left us disappointed. We apologize, and I would ask that you return when you... More

We have many, many grandchildren. When they come visit, they insist on coming to,Twirl. Lots of stuff for the kids to do and most excellent toy store that has items one would never find in a "big box" toy store

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
