The Play House Toy Store

A note from Sarah C.:

It seems like locally owned toy stores are becoming more and more rare which made this discovery very exciting.  Some of our readers might know of The Play House Toy Store in Durham, but it was new to me as it's in an area of Durham I'm not too familiar with. It's a small store packed with fun sure to delight any age.

Besides the wonderful assortment of items to purchase, there are a few small areas such as a train table where little ones can play while you shop.  What really grabbed my attention though were some of the special details: free gift wrapping, birthday party trunks available to borrow, and a lending library for video games and cds.  They also have a gift registry
available for baby showers and for children's wish lists.

Finally, the friendly staff make this visit a special one so look for the bright yellow door and stop in.

This pairs well with visits to Blue Corn Cafe and Ox & Rabbit: Soda & Sundries - both are located just down the block.
