Funflex Summit

Funflex Summit, NJ

I have been traveling quite a bit recently to see family and exploring our new surroundings in Wisconsin, so I always stop in to any specialty retailer toy store that I find. Of course I am looking for PAL Award winners and inevitably engage the store owner about those that they carry and tell them about some that they need to carry!

I was enjoying a little exploring in Summit, New Jersey, a beautiful, quaint downtown filled with unique stores like “The Toy Professor.”  I was excited to see a new company I discovered at the Toy Fair in February, FunFlex. We had a great chat about how unique and fun they are. I did tell the owner and his assistant that they needed to carry the crab toy since their customers live near the ocean!

When in Kohler, Wisconsin, I found a fantastic toy store called “Movers and Shakers Kids’ Toy Store.” They had window displays by theme– it was bugs when I was there including books and toys–and then they had several rooms circling the center area that displayed products by company. I walked into a room pretty exclusively Corolle, then Janod and Hape and Folkmanis had huge displays in the center circle.

Stay tuned for my next Toy Store drop-in:)
