Wind Up Here Toy Store - In the Spotlight in Olympia

When I am shopping for my grandchildren - or for any gift for a child - my favorite destination is the family owned store in Olympia called Wind Up Here.  The name is perfect since the store carries a wonderfully large selection of wind up toys that are pretty irresistible to all ages!

After the lead paint in childrens' toys scare a few years back, I became especially conscious of and happy that Wind Up Here carries high quality products, including many organic & Fair Trade items.  There is a great selection of just the perfect toy for pretty much any age, whether you are hunting for a baby's chew toy, a puzzle, a musical toy, games of all varieties, art supplies, educational offerings etc etc.  And don't forget those fascinating wind up toys!!

The knowledgeable staff is also very helpful if you need advice on just what a 3 year old might most enjoy anyway!  So next time you are shopping for a child and you are anywhere near Olympia, head downtown to Wind Up Here and I know the hardest part will be stopping yourself from buying way too many toys!
