Top Ten Toys

Toy Stores

WINNER: Top Ten Toys

A regular Seattle-area favorite, Top Ten Toys (multiple locations) features a large selection of classic, hands-on playthings that promote creativity and imagination. Hailed by one voter as “the best toy store in the world,” this locally owned, battery-free institution also offers a “play area,” great party favors and “cool, helpful staff members who are very patient with kiddos messing up the store.”

Finalists

Snapdoodle Toys is considered a magical place by devotees (it’s known to locals as Snappy’s, and the Kenmore location offers free lattes to shoppers — we swear it’s true). With “quality products” that inspire creativity in a “kid-friendly environment,” this funky shop (there’s a Redmond location, too) also features space for birthday parties and regular kids’ art classes.

Hopscotch Consignment Boutique in Bellevue again racks up the votes this year for its robust toy selection. Providing a well-organized variety of secondhand playthings for babies and kids, this shop is a hit with local families for its low prices and range of toys and gifts.

On the hunt for unique, educational playthings? Look no farther than White Horse Toys! Located in Issaquah, this celebrated shop provides “an amazing selection” of creative, classic and quirky toys for all ages in a laid-back atmosphere. Parents love the homegrown vibe and note that the staff is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.
