Twirl is a magical, joy filled place in a gorgeous, historical building off a fabulous town plaza. The staff is super smart (just don't do the pop gun more than 3 pops) Twirl has so many free events- an amazing community orientated and generous joint.

We popped into Twirl to grab a few gifts for our seven-year-old twin boys as consolation for not getting to go to on the anniversary trip to Taos with their daddies. Quite unexpectedly, Twirl turned out to be my favorite shop in all of Taos! The nostalgic eighties music they play on Sundays (as I was informed of by the... More

What a super cute toy store! I stopped in while I was walking and shopping today. The store is so sweetly decorated and the items are all nicely displayed. They also have a little fish pond that you can make a wish in by asking them for a wishing stone (since coins are bad for the fish). I bought one... More

Every time I step into Twirl, I go back in time. I wish I was a kid again so I could get away with playing in the yard and begging my parents to buy me any one of the amazing toys available. It is a veritable wonderland for kids located right on The Plaza. I LOVE this store!!

Great selection for toy store but the best part of this place is the play area in the back. Perfect place to relax after a day of exploring Taos. Twirl is right off of the plaza and has seating for parents. Our kids, ages 6 and 8 loved it. The play area has multiple levels and spaces. Well-designed, whimsical play... More

Not to be missed if you have children with you. The toy store is amazing (and reasonably priced). The adjacent play yard is unbelievable! Adults can sit in the shade and watch the kids play. Kids can even walk in the fountain. There is a craft room above the place yard with play kitchen, legos, magnetic tiles, crayons/paper, etc. And... More

This place has a fantastic set of three free play spaces for children of all ages. Playing at Twirl is what our 10 and five year old most remember about our recent trip to New Mexico!!!

Twirls is a pleasant and welcoming environment. We found both locals and tourist here with their kids. There is a free play area in the back where kids can play and burn off energy for hours. We treated our 5 year old to some great toys. We came here two days in a row and my son is still talking... More

We came by for a baby music class while visiting Taos. Wonderful! It was free, fun, and a great way to break up a day when you're vacationing with a baby in tow. I really enjoyed meeting some local mamas and getting the scoop on baby-friendly things to do in town. The outdoor play area looks amazing, and would be... More
