Grab the kids and relive your childhood one toy at a time with a trip to Kidding Around. This independent shop specializes in toys that stimulate the imaginations of kids of all ages, with a selection of unique items you’re not likely to find at the mall. See the joy on your children’s faces as they browse through shelves of games, puppets, costumes, arts and crafts, puzzles, and more until they find the toy of their young dreams. Help your toddler host a teddy bear tea party, choosing from a mountain of plush animals. Watch your eight-year-old become the next Warhol with a Color by Numbers Pop Art Puppies set, or pick up a design kit for the future fashionistas. A Calypso steel drum will be perfect for your budding percussionist, who’s sure to bang on it day and night. (On second thought, steer clear of the drums.) Years from now, your kids will talk about their favorite toys they picked up here, and the memories you made playing as a family.
