Welcome to Geppetto's Toy Box, the 2009 Parent's Pick Award Winner for "Best Toy Store in Chicagoland"!
If you're looking for quality toys that encourage imaginative play and learning, look no further than the heart of Oak Park, IL! This European-inspired toy shop in historic Oak Park focuses on wood and natural fiber toys from responsible manufacturers. From puzzles and games for the whole family, to world music and books, arts and crafts, or fabulous building toys, there's something here for every age! Our bright, vibrant store remains warm and welcoming to all who stop in and we are committed to fabulous customer service and product knowledge. (And we offer free gift wrap too!)
What drives us?
Playing is children's "work" and should tap into every sense. When you hold a quality toy, it makes a difference. We believe play is a multi-sensory experience and should engage all of our senses. When you give a child an open-ended toy, or one without prescribed characteristics or personality, you give them the gift of a lifetime and open the door to strong brain development, particularly creative processes.
We spend a great deal of time finding quality, back-to-basics toys that will benefit the children of our community. We believe that time invested in our children is the most important endeavor we could pursuit. We therefore invest a lot of time in training our employees to be a resource to our customers. We want to be your go-to people, not just to touch-and-feel the product, but to understand how it will benefit your children. But we also want you to have a great shopping experience too, so we've set up an environment that encourages play - no "do not touch" signs around here! We're committed to providing a high quality product and reliable service to our customers, and having a very good time in the process! After all, we're a toy store!
