Top Ten Toys has been a Seattle institution for 30 years, and their philosophy of carrying thought-provoking toys really shows in their great selection.
You’ll find loads of great toys, good for babies and toddlers up through teenagers, and grownups will definitely want to play, too. The people on their staff are super knowledgeable and very helpful in leading you through the maze of shelves to the exact right find.
They also offer special events, such as story-time, game night, and juggling club, to get you and/or your kids going!
One thing you won’t find is toy weapons, as they don’t carry them. Top Ten thinks kids have tons of other fun they can be having, and their many aisles show there are plenty of alternatives. They also think about where their toys come from, buying local when possible, and putting some thought into having U.S.-made options.
After you pick out and pay for your toy, there’s a free wrapping and decorating station, which is a great activity for kids all in itself!
