A Great Toy Store

On Saturday, while driving around Issaquah, we saw a toy store and decided to check it out, since we're thinking of getting Dorothy a rocking horse. The store we went to was White Horse Toys, and it is such a cool store. From the front it looks small, but they've apparently expanded into two other businesses' buildings, making it somewhat large inside. It reminds me of the Construction Site in Waltham MA and the Learning Express store in Norwood MA. Like the Construction Site, White Horse Toys had a number of import toys, although not as many "build it" type toys. And like the Learning Express, they have Manhattan Baby and other toys that don't get wide representation in mega-stores.

There are a number of wooden toys, and old-style tin toys (we got Dorothy a 1950s-type tin top, which she likes even though she herself can't make it spin yet). There are games, figurines, weaving looms and knitting projects, rocking horses (we wound up not getting any, because Dorothy seems a bit too small for them right now), dolls, etc. etc. Quite a variety.

Grandparents, beware! If you go to this store, you'll be sorely tempted to spend too much money. I know we were tempted!

White Horse Toys are located at 317 NW Gilman Blvd in Issaquah, WA.

To answer my previous question: It is Elizabeth who needs to drag Tom out, and not the other way around.
