Peruse These Q's


Q: How can I be sure these toys and games are clean? Germs. Are. Gross.
A: SO GROSS! Upon return, no toy is re-shelved until it is thoroughly cleaned.


Q: Are all your toys and games hand-me-downs? 
Nope! We wanna carry all the hottest stuff you're looking for. Your membership and contributions make sure we have that stuff. We also accept previously-owned toys and games.

Q: So, what's stopping someone from just returning broken toys?
A: We understand that toys break and pieces get lost. Thankfully, we can either replace the missing piece, or the toy goes into the toy parts department to be made into a new toy! If you consistently return toys broken or with missing pieces, there will be a small fee and we’ll send you home with a puppy! (That’s a joke - we keep the puppy.)
