“It really IS the best toy store!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I've met the guy who owns this store, and he's such a kid at heart, disguised as an astute businessman, that his toy store is a must-do trip to town whenever our grandchildren visit. We've brought visiting adults into the store as well to buy toys for grandkids or even themselves. This store is a unique jewel in the heart of Brevard. Two floors of fun!

“Phenomenal Toy Store”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

This toy store was huge and contained the best toys anywhere! Something for everyone of all ages. In this day and age of digital devices, it was so nice to see real toys and games that don't require batteries! The staff was very helpful and kind.

“Heaven for all kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

This store has all the toys in it that my wife and I played with as kids over 50 years ago and my 9 year old granddaughter had a blast going through 2 floors of toys. She wanted some of the toys we had played with and a few we had never seen before.
It was wonderful to watch her face as she went from one toy to the next.
It was an hour well spent to see how happy she was.

“A Delightful Little Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

It's small and, on busy weekends, it's very crowded, but what a gem of a toy store. They've managed to pack a *huge* variety of items into a 2-story old house in downtown Brevard. Definitely worth a stop if you're in town.

“A fun way to spend a rainy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

It was a rainy day at the resort, so we drove into Brevard to escape cabin fever. We took the children to O.P. Taylor's toy store. The kids had a blast. We love the fact that the staff encouraged our rambunctious children to actually play with the toys. The kids especially loved playing the slot cars.

My 6 y/o daughter bought a cool puzzle of the United States, but my 4 y/o son was determined on buying a robot. After two members of the staff was unable to find my son's "perfect" robot, the nice gentleman in the hobby room found him a red r/c robot. It was the last one in the store. We were impressed with the awesome customer service.
