Rediscovering a great toy

Sometimes your child will find a toy you bought several years ago and start playing with it all over again like a newfound treasure. At 5, he might see a toy with different eyes and a different set of questions than he did when he was 3. Having a good selection of quailty toys around the house (which requires fewer toys than you might think) helps create an enriching environment that resonates more than a whole lot more plastic battery operated toys can. I thought of this when Duncan rediscovered his spinning top and found a new fascination with it this morning. -dan

Announcing the Peapods "Black Friday" Sidewalk Sale

In honor of our unseasonably warm weather, we announce our first ever "July in Christmas" Sidewalk Sale. It'll be only on November 27th and 28th from 10am to 6pm (no need to get up early!)

We'll be offering 40% off on select merchandise--overstock toys, games, shoes, and more!

Extended Hours
Also, as in past years, we will be open on Sundays from 12-4 through the holidays.

Product Availability
we want to let you know that this has been a somewhat different year for us and many of our vendors. For a variety of reasons, many of our most popular toys will be in shorter supply this year. We encourage you to shop early this year for the best selection.

Thanks again for your continued support! We wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!

Note: if winter actually arrives during the sale, we'll move it inside!
