Looking back, almost 10 years ago, who would have thought that our obsession for great toys would evolve into this, Kidstop toys & books? We now make yearly treks to New York's International Toy Fair, ASTRA's Marketplace (where we really get to play with the toys!) and other great shows. We search not only for the best toys, but for toys that ignite light bulbs over little heads (Kate's indicator of a favorite toy); for toys with two-part play (Kathy's favorite saying because the toy does more than just stand there); and toys that are just awesome! (Caitlyn's daily phrase). And the rumor is true; we practically test every toy and read every book in the store. We're obsessive! Our four walls and warehouse are stocked to the ceiling. If you don't find what you are looking for here on the website, don't fret!
We have thousands of other fabulous toys available in our award winning store, just call and we will be happy to assist you. Our website shows only a smattering of the fun toys we play with everyday. Our Kidstop store opened 10 years ago and we have steadily grown bigger and better everyday. Best of Phoenix winner numerous times already, Nickelodeon Best Toy Store for Little Kids, but the best award is what are customers say about us-
"I was in your store on Friday. What a wonderful, wonderful feeling you get when you shop in your toy store. I wish I was a kid again! I felt like I was transformed back in time to a 'real toy store' and was enchanted with your staff and how beautiful everything was displayed. What a gift you have creating this for children and families."
And Chase's mom wrote-- "PS…You will love this…Chase had some exchanges for gifts at Toys 'R' Us…After an hour and two laps around he asked if we could go to the other "real" toy store in Scottsdale (yours, of course!!) It is appalling how quickly he finds things he loves in your store….and was absolutely overwhelmed and unhappy in TRU. At least he has good taste, right?"
Okay, you caught us, we love to spoil our customers but if you asked us to pick our most favorite toy at Kidstop?? That is such a hard question, especially if you are under the age of 12, so can we say let's pick three or four??! But we hope you can! While you peruse our new website, keep in mind that each toy has been hand picked, tested, drove, jumped on, cuddled, painted and ready to deliver a great hands-on experience. Is our near-obsessive enthusiasm showing again? It's just typical of all of us here at Kidstop.
And, of course, don't forget McGuire, the English Springer who has stolen more hearts, hugs and treats from all who walk through our door. She is the veracious head toy tester; she demands a high level of customer service and wraps every gift paw-fectly.
For any questions, call us, email us, but don't let ONE DAY slip by without having a great time playing while they grow & learn!
