Parents Testimonials

Our child loves this family-owned, independent toy store. They have a fantastic variety of truly unique toys that you won’t find anywhere else! Their book selection is out of this world too; so many great titles I’ve never come across before. If you are looking for a birthday present that will knock their socks off, or an educational toy to occupy your little one on a rainy day, Toy River is the place to go!
