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!)  Please call the store to reserve your special spot for any of our events: 708-445-9906
