You can get great ideas about toys or especially books kids will love (a huge "reading land" with books and fairy tale activities for active kids) but even more, you'll love the walks through nostalgia in the Toy...
There are so many hands-on, engaging activities for kids of all ages (age 2-99!)... our kids loved the pinball machines (very reasonable price for tokens), butterfly conservatory, and storybook areas the best.
