By Emma@Lulu / November 06, 2019

If you are looking for a toy store where you can find a variety of classic toys, games, art supplies and a life-sized wooden toy train, then Teich Toys & Books is your spot!

Located in New York City’s West Village, the family-owned toy store has been providing the supplies and toys kids need to fuel creativity and imagination since 2014.

We sat down for an interview with Kit from Teich Toys & Books and he gave us some insight into what their store is all about.

Meet Teich Toys

“At our store we focus on mainly classic toys, not a lot of battery-operated things, not a lot of flashing lights and sounds. Mainly because, I think there is enough of that in the world already. And it doesn’t seem to be stopping or slowing down. If we can offer a haven or shelter away from that, then that’s great.”

A haven that helps a child cultivate the beautiful beginnings of an idea to start creating their own story. A perfect place for our Lulu Junior kits!

“When they come back with a book and show us what they did, it’s a real treat, they really get a sense that my idea is really turned into something,” says Kit.

Can you imagine the excitement of seeing your young author’s story and illustrations in an actual book? Opening that Lulu Junior package is almost like unwrapping gifts on Christmas morning!

Or, if you’ve got your little one with you, don’t forget to check out that life-sized toy train we mentioned and stop by the train depot to check out Teich’s excellent selection of books!
