For all those worried about finding the perfect last minute gift the holidays, look no further: The Toy Post is here.
Located on 180 Post Road East, the new family owned toy store opened on Dec. 1, providing Westport residents with toys and children’s books all at one convenient location.
“I think I will definitely shop here because I have some friends with younger siblings. This would be a great place to go and get a gift for them,” Nicole Jamieson ’21 said.
The store features a wide variety of board games, books and stuffed animals. There are many options to choose from with items that can interest infants, toddlers and teens. Something that is unique to this toy store is the reading corner that poses as a miniature library.
Along with being able to buy toys there, they also plan to offer fun activities and gatherings in the future.
“We will be offering free story times, craft and play days,” Shapiro said. “We want The Toy Post to be a destination for play dates or just a morning out.”
The Toy Post features one of the widest varieties of toys and books for children in Westport and acts as a place for young families to get to know each other or shop. Shapiro is excited to bring something new to Westport and hopes to keep kids smiling for a long time.
