This was a great find. As owners of a toy store in Dallas, we tend to always check out the local specialty toy stores when on vacation and this one was a fabulous find. Looking at the product mix, you can tell the owner(s?) spend time and effort picking out stuff for their store. The have the typical specialty toy store lines (that you will not find in Toys R Us) but the also have several unique lines that one does not find in many toy stores.

They are more than a toy store - there is a a reason they have Playspace in their store name. There is a great playground with climbing structures, slides, "musical instruments" and play houses. Upstairs, they have an incredible art room that was full young children making crafts when we dropped by (there is a schedule, check out their web site)

If you are in Taos with children under 35, well worth the stop.

room to let little people burn off energy in a fenced off outdoor space. A great little toy store. Now, if they would just put in an outdoor wine bar.....

This is a toy store that has something for every age. Every shelf is stocked with items familiar and unique. There are activities that can be signed up for. We had many minutes of delight in visiting the store.

Fun atmosphere inside with indoor koi pond, waterfall, large train set, and other hands-on toys. Even more fun atmosphere outside with large play structure, treehouse, and musical instruments. I would recommend the large indoor upstairs playroom with self-serve coffee bar. Our two young children did not want to leave either day we visited. Just FYI, the staff requests a $2 donation per family per day to help keep up the outdoor playspace.

Twirl is not just a toy store. While it has amazing, creative and educational toys that are different from the run of the mill ones you see at Toys R Us, it has much more. They offer free craft workshops and a fun outdoor play space, open to the public for free. Inside, there is a very nice train table as well. We spent 3 days in Taos, every one of them at Taos for part of the day. Our son loved this place!
