About us

The Toy Store was started in 1975, in downtown Topeka, KS. After 40 years in business we have grown into two beautifully expansive stores. Still located in Topeka, we have a sister store in historical downtown Lawrence, KS.  The Toy Store has both embraced and become part of the communities we serve.

Our expert staff takes pride in being the most knowledgeable source on children's playthings in the area. Old-timey nostalgia and modern quirkiness blend together to create a unique experience. The Toy Store inspires creativity, individual thinking, and community awareness through play, scientific inquiry, and reading! We offer a wide selection and expert advice that only a local, family-owned business can provide. We stock today's finest toys, books, and games, all the while embracing the classic toys you remember fondly from your childhood.
