There's always something fun going on at Geppetto's Toy Box! Make sure to like us on Facebook to get real-time updates on products and events (and mark us for notifications when to do so to ensure we make it to your feed!)

We love being a part of the Oak Park community and see ourselves as more than just a toy store.  We take pride in being a resource to the Community, experts in our field, and the best retail experience there is.

We know you value what local businesses bring to a community and appreciate your support as we contribute to the vibrancy of our community: by having a strong downtown area, creating jobs, and keeping our local economy strong.

We take pride in creating a unique shopping experience, carefully creating a warm, inviting shop with well-merchandised, quality products. We hope you appreciate all we put into what we do. Because in the end, you're not just buying a toy, you are investing in what we do: from the space, to the lights, to the time and effort it takes to create a top notch staff, to the time spent carefully selecting our products. It's all done out of love; it's all done for you.

There's always something going on inside the Toy Box! For up-to-the-minute updates on products and events, make sure to like us on Facebook. (When you're there, make sure to check the box for "notifications" to ensure you see our posts!)
