I love this store. It sent me back to my childhood days with all the vintage toys as well as modern toys. And the candy they have is great. I will definitely be returning.

Located in the center of downtown Brevard, this delightful little toy store is a must visit for anyone with children to buy for. The two-story little store is packed floor to ceiling with a wide array of quality toys. There are lots of Legos and other building sets, trains and cars, dolls, crafts, games, science kits, puzzles, dress-up accessories, and... More

This store has 2 stories of toys to bring back your childhood. It was great to see colorforms, magic growing rocks, and life-size Lego displays all in one place. Be sure to bring a little one along and plan to spend at least an hour perusing.

This is a must stop. The prices are not cheap but you will find toys for all ages. These are not the big box store toys but toys that you had when you were a kid.

This place is really unique and at the same time has just about any kind of current toy or game you might want to buy. I felt like I was walking into Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium and quite honestly one of the men working there looked liked Mr. Magorium. After walking through the entire store my wife and I found...

If you ever need a toy that you can't find at Walmart or the mall or any other store, check with John at O.P. Taylor's. I personally thing it's better than Toys R Us!

Rated in the top toy stores (South, U.S., world) by various publications. At the corners of Main & Broad, it is literally located in the heart of Brevard. It is truly one of the most interesting toy stores you can visit -- even if you aren't looking for toys -- a room of nothing but lego sets and spectacular lego... More

Loved, loved, loved O.P. Taylor's. Quaint and cozy. An incredible amount of toys to view in a historic building. Amazing selection. The store seems to go on forever, around each corner you will find more toys. Be sure to stop in and remember to buy local! You will feel good that you did.

If you have children, grandchildren, a husband, boyfriend, a sister, brother, or cousin who likes toys ... or if you like toys yourself, do NOT miss this toy store! They have THREE levels and 7 or 8 different rooms of EVERY toy you can imagine. Wonderful wonderful place. Oh, parking is a problem.
