Muddle Puddle toys is the perfect place to find the latest and greatest of classic toys; most of which don't require batteries (parents, rejoice!). The staff is wonderful when needing to find toys as gifts. I've provided the age of the child, whether or not they have younger siblings -- safety concerns -- and the personality of the child, whether they are very physical, creative, etc and the staff has helped me pick the perfect gift every time. Thanks to them, we've been able to give quality gifts that children have loved and parents appreciate.
The store is set up well for kids so shopping as a family is easy. The train sets in the back and "safe" toys on lower shelves keep our kids occupied while we go through our list.
