Cars, dinosaurs, unicorns, oh my – You can find these and so much more at a new local toy store, Wildlings Toys in Phoenix. Yes, an actual brick and mortar toy store. A place you can go to see unique toys you won’t find in big box stores. They also have a website if you can’t make it in, or need to hide your purchase from the kids.
I headed to check out Wildlings Toys to shop for my kid’s birthday. The kids had been inventing presents they wanted (a full-size train that starts at our house and goes to the ocean seems easy enough, not) so I needed some actual real-life ideas. I went in to talk to the owner of this new store, Jenn, and she was able to show me lots of ideas. I told her a few things about my kids and she showed me all kinds of cool toys.
We go through books like crazy around my house and I can never get enough. One thing I liked about the collection of books Jenn has chosen for the store is the variety. There are classics like Little Blue Truck, but also new unique books about trucks. And lots of Arizona books, Good Night Grand Canyon is just so cute!
I don’t know about you, but I stress about other kid’s birthdays more than my own. My own will give me a list of everything they want. But sometimes I draw a total blank on friends or nieces and nephews. Jenn was able to point out so many unique ideas based on age. She pointed out the pros and cons of them as well. A perfect example, this widow cling art kit. It’s for older kids, but an art lover would love something like this. And a hands-on parent could have so much fun helping a kid make it.
