2013 Kids' Toys

Duck Duck Goose

Theres a smart collection of owner-approved playthings the kind of well-designed, safe, decidedly non-obnoxious games, trikes, dolls and art kits that kids and parents love. But thats only half the story. DDG also sells handmade Etsy-like goods from locals; has an indoor drop-in play space that costs $9 a day; offers group activities like Build-It Fridays and Itch to Stitch Thursdays; and maintains a partnership with the Eilandarts Center, which gives you access to cool classes.
